Do NOT get emotionally attached. To work, to office politics, to contract dates.

I’m stressing tf out. Due to Covid, I went home to my parents to be around and help but we’ve always had a strained relationship. My dad is bipolar and my mom is a control freak tiger mom with a nasty tongue. Covid has not helped our relationship and I began to feel resentful. With the BLM movement, I’ve been getting into arguments with them every day bc they just haven’t been getting it. They don’t see the bigger picture about racism (systemic & general) and abuse of power from cops.

I work in NB at a bro-ey agency. Execs “dream-team” is always 100% male then they ask to add women last minute to break up the “dude-fest”. How do I voice its bullshit w/o jeopardizing my job.

Have many of you with children taken an extended vacation (7+ days) with just your SO? I know my retired parents would be happy to watch, but wondering if it's unfair to our toddler. Not to miss out on the trip, but to be apart for that period of time. Am I being selfish for wanting to spend some alone time with my SO? This would obviously be after COVID is under control.
