My husband and I have admitted to each other on numerous occasions since the pandemic started that we are extremely thankful that we didn’t end up having kids. We watch our coworkers struggle with balancing work and raising kids and realize we dodged a bullet. We are happy with our lives where we can travel in normal times, and are not tied down by children. This has been a major breakthrough for both of us to recognize and express our relief. So, there’s one bright side to the pandemic.

I’m just so sick of seeing pregnant influencers with perfectly round stomachs frolicking around in overly fashionable clothing.

I, a childless woman who does not plan to have kids, am jealous of the parental leave parents get to take from work from choosing to have a child (a big life event). I 100% understand that they are working in a different way by taking care of the baby and being deliriously worn out in the process, but it makes me sort of jealous that unless I have a kid there is no life event that I can take ~3 months away from work to focus on and enjoy, plus have my hours prorated and a job to come back to.

I work in a sub-team that is quite large, another colleague of mine joined a parallel sub-team that feeds into a larger team at the exact same time. We both had the same rank entering EY. He was promoted recently, I think with his sub-team being smaller, the budget may have been available for his promotion.

However, the work I do, ability I have, feedback I have received over the last 2-3 years has always been positive with "exceeding expectations". Am I hindered by being in a large sub-team?
