How do you deal with non-accepting family members? I don’t make it a thing, but I’ve been advised to take off my tie and change into more feminine clothing around them. I am okay with not discussing my personal life, but I don’t feel comfortable changing my dress. So I just don’t keep in contact with those relatives. A therapist told me that I am not secure in my gender identity if I am not willing to take off a tie and show compassion to a family member who would be upset by it? Am I selfish?
Happy Monday all! I am working on a panel discussion with 3 business leaders for increasing young female talent/pipeline in Tech with an inclusion lens.

Has anyone done a 2-hr roundtrip daily commute for years? Unfortunately in this situation due to location of spouse’s job -it’s fairly rural and that area doesn’t have the same level of education (kid is about to start K), diversity, convenience, jobs opps me, stuff to do or parks as our current city has. Switching jobs is not an option for him unfortunately. I do feel very guilty about the long commute for him though.

Just a shout-out to all the LGBTQ+ consultants who are not in heteronormative relationships. Every time I read threads here wherein folks assume that someone posting about a wife or girlfriend is a man, or someone with a husband is a woman, I feel invisible. This also happens to me at work - colleagues and clients incorrectly assume the gender of my spouse. Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!

Parent has a thrift savings plan and it’s all in bonds which yields a really low rate of return. retiring this year. With coming inflation, would it be a good idea to consider shifting at least some of that into other funds like the C Fund (common stock index) or otherwise diversify? They don’t need all of the money right away but would need to slowly dip into it over time. TIA!

For the women in Chicago. Are there any cool spots you feel comfortable going on your own? Broke up during Covid and I realize I never go to bars or restaurants any more because I’m so used to not being on my own. I can drag friends with me but damnit I’m an adult. lol.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today.

Since turning 25 my family is ON me to think about marriage. I’ve always struggled with the concept of marriage and truly always just dated for fun, with no end goal in mind. I am south asian and have somehow always dated non-south Asian men, but my culture is really important to me. I feel I have this idea that marriage is going to take away my independence and it’s never really appealed to me. How did you shift your perspective, if so? I am feeling pressured to start dating more seriously.
