On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- You're concerned about your friends' unconventional swinging throuple lifestyle and its potential impact on their children. How do you check in without seeming judgmental?
- Pregnancy-related fatigue has you struggling to balance your professional and personal life, and the guilt of underachievement is bringing you down. What do you do when life gets in the way of your own expectations?
- Your partner plans on ditching responsibility for his ballooning student debt because he's not optimistic he'll ever be able to pay off the predatory terms he agreed to when he was younger and ill-advised. While you morally agree with his stance, you wonder what your obligation would be if you remained together and it came time to merge accounts. [Thanks to certified financial planner David Gilmore for helping us with this one!]
- You filled in for your manager during her eight-week vacation, built strong connections within the company, and gained the respect of your colleagues while stepping up to the role. Now that she's back, how can you use this valuable experience to prove you're ready for more responsibilities (and a bigger paycheck)? [Thanks to executive coach and From Start-Up to Grown-Up author Alisa Cohn for helping us field this one!]
- Due to a previous marriage to an abusive alcoholic, your partner is intolerant of being around people who are even modestly intoxicated. How can you ask him for a little grace and freedom to celebrate your son's upcoming wedding without disrespecting his boundaries?
