Most of us don’t know what we’re doing at work or in life but still feel compelled to act like we do. The more transparent we are with others about this, the more we grow. And no matter how much I learn, I will still feel inadequate and that’s OK.

I agree that the basis is self-worth and not someone else’s love for you. But to make a blanket statement like C1 did without qualification seemed troubling

Always pack extra flashlight batteries.

That which does not kill you makes you stronger. Trust people on a case by case, situation by situation basis, never trust blindly and forever.

I went on a weekend hiking trip with a male friend who I thought was platonic, assuming we’d split everything 50/50. I booked activities and car rental totaling $700, while he booked the hotel. During the trip, he tried to hook up, and I made clear I wasn’t interested. It made the rest of the trip awkward, but even more so when I said we should split expenses evenly…and then he told me the hotel cost $1800 for two nights. Con’t

Advice on how to offset capital gains with a loss. I averaged down on a stock (chk) for years until it finally went bankrupt (lesson learned). The rest of my portfolio is 👍🏼 and I’m realizing approx $20k this year. When I go to sell chk it will be approx $30k loss. Should I wait to sell it next year when I plan to sell my rental property, to offset capital gains? I think you can offset 3k a year, right? Or sell $3k of chk now before January to realize those losses to offset 2020 gains?
