Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏

Going through a tough time personally. Spouse wanted to stop working when we moved here with our kid. Had troubled times back home as we were staying with our parents. Was hoping things would go back to normal here. But the streak seems to continue. Fed up of the daily fights and now I am thinking of separating. But it worries me that my spouse not working may put her down even if I support financially. Worried about my daughter if we separate. Any inputs from folks who faced something lik this?

Question: I’ve seen so many women get in mommy mode and throw their hobbies, careers, everything to the side as soon as a baby arrive. I don’t want to do that and in my mind I feel that I’ll still get to be myself. Does being a mom naturally make you lose your previous identity? It’s hard enough trying to move up within our roles but is this naturally in us?

Why do agencies always ask what you want more of then instead of giving you exactly what you asked for, they give you a budget store hybrid version of it that is not helpful at all?! Then they wonder why no one is using it! It’s like we spelled it out, we’d use what we asked for.
