My therapist told me today that she thinks she might get fired. I broke down crying. I can't take another loss in my life. I was crying so hard I had to cut off the conversation. I don't know where to go from here. It's taken me almost a year to feel comfortable enough to open up to her. I don't know what to do or where to turn. I'm devastated.

Our lives are so shiny from outside and so deprived inside. I am sorry OP, I see you are super lonely and seem to have a huge dependency on your therapist. I am as lonely
as well and haven’t slept since 3-4 days.
Can your therapist still see you once she finds a new job? Maybe this is temporary?

like

I hope so. Who knows how long this will take.

I feel you, OP. I never found a good fit therapy but i could totally imagine feeling the same way if I were lucky to meet one and get comfortable. I hope you can still see her wherever she goes…

When to break-up with someone? I’ve been dating my gf for 6 years (2 long distance 1yr on a break and 3 living together. Nothing terrible about the relationship but I’m not happy and no longer feel in love. I’ve tried working it out but haven’t felt the relationship has gotten any better. I feel at this point the best thing to do for both of us is split (she shouldn’t be with someone that can’t love her fully). So here’s the options continued…

So I am in a city where my ex lives (nothing major, just a few dates at some point). He tends to watch and ‘react’ to most of my stories on Instagram. I asked him last night via insta if he any restaurant recommendations as I am here with husband and friends and we wanted somewhere fun to go. He hasn’t read it or responded, but clearly watched every single story. Isn’t that sort of rude? I don’t know if I have done something to annoy him but I don’t know how!

I’m a junior and he’s a senior in the same group with ~20 people. He doesn’t supervise me, but we aren’t at our largest office, so we might still bump into each other awkwardly if things go wrong. We are both single.

I’ve been holding my feelings back hard. (He still invites me to group/office outings, so pretty sure he senses nothing weird.) I know it’s hard to find someone like him though, and I wonder if I really should just silently kill my feelings for him?

Seeing the wave of layoffs and hiring freezes being announced is sad for impacted employers but it will do good for the industry as a whole. This will force companies to prioritize, become more efficient and will cool wage inflation which has been out of control in tech.

Anyone have a sense of why Deloitte got hit so hard by layoffs? I’ve heard four potential reasons:
1. Client mix / type of work
2. Leverage
3. Over hired in anticipation of growth
4. Partners didn’t want to take a haircut

Just curious! From an external perspective, seems like they cut way more than the other firms.
