I’m so lonely I forgot what feeling wanted feels like. It’s almost as if I’m numb to the human need of feeling desired and I’ve accepted my fate of solitude. I’m not sad about this, that’s what makes it numb. Life feels bland but not terrible. I have no expectations of anyone to ever want me nor am I resentful that I am alone. Is this normal?

I've been asked to lead the product for a b2c company after working in tech for the last decade. My company was acquired in 2019 by the same company and now the CEO requested me to move to product saying there's lack of good tech people in Product.

Good move?

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I have no passion for the work I’m doing. While I love the craft of storytelling and enjoy working with many of my colleagues, I have zero interest in the accounts I’m on, have concerns about the flailing leadership at my agency and am at a crossroads. But I’m at a point in my life where I’d rather be running toward something amazing vs running away from something I dislike. Looking for stories of those who made a switch, no regrets. Thank you.

Why are leveraged ETFs a bad idea if you buy and hold? I get that there’s more risk than reward due to decay but it doesn’t make sense to me from a stock price standpoint. UPRO’s price has more than doubled in the past five years whereas the S&P 500 hasn’t, so what’s stopping you from realizing those gains?

Feeling hopeless today professionally. I’ve tried to trooper on throughout this pandemic but today it all caught up to me. Exhausted, mentally drained and just so negative. Feel like all I do is work since covid. Have tried to set boundaries but it’s impossible when people can reach out on my cell. Get taken advantage of regularly for trying to do what right thing to support my teams. I like my job but I don’t know that I can keep this pace and that adds stress too
