Is it normal in a long term relationship for your significant other to not support what you do and talk to you like a child every day? We live together and I feel trapped. This is so hard.

Nope. Fuck that. Are you safe? Can you leave, now or at the end of the lease? Do you have your own bank account? Start squirreling away as much as you can into your own savings so that you have readily available rent/deposit. Tell friends what is going on so they build you up to have to conviction to leave. A supportive partner may have feelings about your work/life balance or other choices you make but they shouldn’t be talking down to you about it.

Of course, absolutely not normal. Can you elaborate at all?

I think if you have to ask Is this normal then you’re also saying it’s not what you want and already know it’s not a good relationship. Get out.

Home should be where you feel safe, supported, happy and relaxed. This does not sound like your experience. I always believe that initiating an open dialogue to resolve things, respectfully and compassionately, should be the first move before giving up completely on a relationship. But if you’ve already done that and nothing has changed, please consider removing yourself from this environment. Nothing feels more lonely and unhappy than being in a relationship where you feel devalued. Please put your mental and emotional health first.

I can’t believe it. I finally broke 6 figures! Started the year making 55k, jumped some jobs for raises/promotions, invested as much as I could, and I finally hit this huge milestone. Wanted to share it with this bowl because you have all been so helpful and kind. Here’s to the next $100,000!
