Be a shoulder to lean on. Check in with them regularly and ask them how they are doing. Ask if there is anything they need.

Confession… had an engagement with a married man who was in an “open relationship”. It was explained to me that they each had their own partners. As a sign of trust, I was invited to join a group chat with the wife. She seemed cool and everything was fine until I was asked if I was interested in her. Hindsight - he lied to me and her, letting her believe I was interested in the two of them together. Why are some men such dicks…. I made it clear from the beginning it was just a friend thing.

I've been super unhappy the past few months and I'm not sure how to get past it. I don't think I'm depressed. Just very unhappy with life right now and it's seriously affecting my work and day-to-day life.

On paper I have a lot of things that I thought would have made me happy. I got into a deferred M7 program, I'm over $500k liquid because of inheritance, I'm nearby my parents, and a few of my college friends moved to the city I'm currently working in.

I have been really unhappy in my job (DMV area) and have submitted countless applications. I finally have an interview tomorrow. I am terrified I’m going to blow it with how nervous I am. If I do, I’m 1) missing out on an opportunity I REALLY want and need, and 2) god knows the next time I’ll actually get an interview. I also don’t know how I can mentally handle my current job anymore. Constantly giving my all to my employer for bare minimum in return. I feel helpless, frustrated and worthless.
