In my last relationship, it was difficult for my partner to understand the challenges which come with consulting life (for example, lack of work-life balance etc). Did you guys also encounter something similar?

Please feel free to hit me up on personal chat, especially if you're from Mumbai and into consulting.

(PS: I'm not complaining regarding work-life balance in this post. I love what I do).

Most people don’t have demanding jobs, so it is hard for them to relate to the dedication needed to sustain demanding jobs. I say dedication because it is up to you to set the boundaries so it doesn’t become a work-life issue per your standards (some people tolerate more intrusion than others). But the boundaries are also on the other end of the spectrum, on how you relate with your significant other to make them aware that sometimes you need to put in the extra hours.
In the end you need to learn how to juggle both.

My problem was that my bf would get jealous/possessive when I traveled for work but I travel a lot less post-covid

Due to inflation at its highest rate since 1982, I feel that I am not being paid enough. I can’t afford things on a day to day basis and I think I can make the same amount of money in gig jobs for cash downtown. During the Trump administration I was doing just fine financially - now it costs me so much just to get to work. Is it appropriate to have an inflation conversation with my bosses or should I just pick up shifts as a bartender at night - I need to make about 600 more a month to make it.
