My friends have a range of responses to my usual “busy at work” / “away at client site” responses when they ask if I’m free to hang out. Some give emphasize, some can’t understand why/how I work so much, and others just feel downright pity for me. I guess we have each other OP?

I moved in with my SO when covid started! We have challenges with our separate careers. She is a teacher and constantly complains about being on zoom for 4hrs per day with kids, and how she is bored from when she gets off at 4 and I get off at 6. I don’t even know what to say to her as everything I’m doing is much more difficult at work. Outside of work, she isn’t the type of person to cook (and does not understand she can eat from the kitchen and not have to order things) - meaning...

I have a para/assistant teacher that just wants to argue over everything. “You’re the teacher, why do I have to assess the children during break out rooms?” We have 8 kids, and I am only asking her to do 3! The other para is doing 3 and I and doing 2 with IEPs!!! How am I supposed to handle this in a professional manner virtually? Plus she is frustrated b/c o can’t explain everything. I keep telling her it’s all new to me too. Grace is not a word in her vocab. And I am feeling graceless.

Realizing I have a hard time forgiving people. Like my boyfriend uncharacteristically yelling hurtful things at me that he didn’t mean and were only said in the heat of the moment. He feels terrible, he’s working on himself to unpack some deep seeded issues. I just…can’t seem to trust him the same way as I did before. How do you forgive and move on? I want to.

If a person were worried that their fiancee could potentially be with them purely for monetary gain, would it be wrong to test them before the marriage? By test I mean have a third party offer a decent amount of money to break off the wedding?

What are you thoughts on splitting shared expenses 50/50 or proportionate to income with SO? What if both make over $175k but there is still a significant % delta (30%+)? Mid 20s, bought a condo together (split 50/50) and will likely get engaged soon.

Any other lonely social workers in here? I mean a lot to some of the people on my caseload but that's about it.

Do you spend most of your time alone or is your social time self care for you? Just feel like I don't have a support system!

TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.

I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)

Insurance Defense Associate new to group. Just finished first year on the defense side after 6 years on the Plaintiff side, joined 3 weeks before lockdown. WFH with 6 and 2 year old. While billing 2k in a year with kids at home all day is nuts, you will not get better balance in a small pltff firm. Small firm partners are allergic to WFH, and can't afford to be flexible with when an associate gets to their work. The support of a larger firm is what has kept me alive this past year.
