Why would I feel bad MD?
Each time it’s been relation to things other people have or haven’t done, so guess googles response works


Did you follow up with them later and ask them to explain it?

OP, does that make u feel bad?

It’s usually because the topic is something you should already know / understand and we’re annoyed we have to hold your hand.

Hi all! My hubby and I are were talking recently about starting a family. I just turned 29 and have been feeling like I’m behind with life, in a lot of things (work, life milestones, etc). I finally got a FT job last August after several years of contracts and unemployment so I’m grateful I have a steady income. I still have big career goals and want to eventually be promoted (wishful thinking).

My question is, will having children really hinder my career journey? Do I wait?
