Anyone else randomly get mad at something that happened to you as a kid? For example, I was in a meeting this afternoon and out of nowhere, I reminded myself of my Little League days when my coach embarrassed me in front of my team for being the first baseman who couldn’t afford a first baseman’s glove. I mean I was playing the field just fine with a Nomar Garciaparra glove that was a little too small for my hand 🤷♂️
I’d like to know if I’m being stupid for being underpaid. I’m currently being paid 80k as an A2 in TAS (HCOL), however I’ve been an “acting senior” for the past 6 months. I have great flexibility and I’m treated well at my current firm. And my office is only 20mins away. If I left, I’d join as a senior and make 20k more, but I may give up flexibility, and the commute would be longer. I’m a single father with young kids, so flexibility is important to me. Career goals = partner. Any opinions?
