Fantastic article. Thanks for sharing. That 40+ percent statistic actually gives me solace in my own decision knowing that there's a lot of women now who feel the same. Unfortunately, the patronizing and intrusive conversations won't go away anytime soon. I'm always immediately bristled when people say, "I felt the same exact way until I had kids. Trust me, you'll change your mind" or "You're going to regret it" or "How does your husband feel about this?" These types of dialogue assume that I didn't make this decision seriously or that my husband and I haven't discussed.

Like we don’t say those things to people who want kids? Why would they say such things to us? People need to mind their own business!

I woke up at 3 AM with Sunday scaries despite being off this week. Decided to look back at pictures/quotes I’ve taken screenshots of over the years and have determined I’ve been stagnant in life for a solid 3-4 years. Sure I passed the CPA exam, made senior, then manager, but my satisfaction with my job and life has remained low for that duration. Every year around now I start looking to leave but never do because industry seems boring. Any advice? 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Creatives, if I send you resources you asked for in an email or Slack and your response is to ask me send it to the PM instead, I immediately view you as a precious child. Don’t be a child.

Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories.

Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/
