Yes. When I was in 2nd grade my teacher/director asked me to write a one pager on what I want to be when I grow up. I wrote that I wanted to be a consultant to solve important problems for CEOs and add value to the shareholders. I knew I was on the right track when I was promoted a month later

I wanted to work on cars. Got into mechanical engineering to pursue it as well but somehow lost interest, grabbed whatever opportunity came my way, and landed here. I guess a lot of people would relate but it just makes me sad to think about lost/forgotten passions☹️

My partner and I had an unplanned pregnancy a couple years ago. I was always very pro-choice, but when it came to me, I couldn’t go through with abortion. He really didn’t want to be a father, and was v angry. He committed to stay, but it is over a year post-baby, and we haven’t been intimate since our son was conceived. He told me last night that he doesn’t know if he can be intimate with me again, bc I broke his trust by keeping the baby, and if it were to happen again, he wouldn’t survive.

Perspective requested. 10 mths ago i was talking to an acquaintance (lives in IN, same age late 20s) and they were having a baby. I expressed my congratulations and during the convo said something like, ‘…here i can’t bring myself to adopt a pup and you’re prepared for such a big responsibility’. Everything’s cool. Present: (randomly) they remind me of this and say they understood my intent but want to teach me that I was culturally inappropriate. Thoughts?

My little girl now has an option of returning to school in-person through her spring break. My spouse is a high risk + extra careful when it comes to all things pandemic. I'm worried about my little kid's lost year & want her to go to school & interact with her friends, learn, etc. She's been home since March. Schools are being extra careful, maintaining all precautions, etc. But I can't convince my spouse to agree to this. Anyone else in a similar situation?

Just started last week after mat leave and just don’t feel myself at work. I’m constantly thinking of my baby (he’s taken care of by a nanny) so in the same house - which leads to me getting distracted. I was considered a high performer but now the partner keeps telling me I have “mom” brain (which pisses me off but wtv). FWIW it’s true, and I truly couldn’t care less, which is very unlike me so I’m confused as hell.

I still feel like a kid a lot of the time and my husband and I have enough to argue about without adding a baby to the mix. I’ve always been the one to think about baby names but now that it’s coming time to think about kids I’m scared.
