That’s rough, I am sorry you are going through this :( . I think she probably thinks you guys blame her for what happened with your brother pulling away, which it may be her pushing him away, or maybe he is using her as an excuse, who knows. I do think you should focus on him and not her. He is your brother who isn’t behaving appropriately, but it seems like you get that.
What was your relationship with your brother like historically? I think if your family is dysfunctional (like mine) and you have never been close to your siblings (like me) then maybe she is getting some information about you from his end.
If this is total projection and you guys are close, then I think another talk with…
So my husband is getting recruited by a bay area company you have all heard of. All of his best career options are out there. He doesn’t have an offer yet, but his old boss works there so it seems sort of promising.
I’ve always been resistant to moving there because it’s crazy expensive, but this opportunity would probably…
I’m a bad person, but I think a lot of people who plan destination weddings are dicks.
Vacations are expensive, I save for them, plan them neurotically, and want to do them MY WAY. I doubt a destination wedding will be the way I would do Tuscany. Also Tuscany isn’t on my list of destinations I want to go to. I think that…
I spent so much f’ing money this weekend.
On Friday we went to Tupelo, because we had not been out to dinner in a while and I had a bad week. $79.41

But I think it’s great, and plus you are funny. Funny people can get away with most things in my mind.
Everyone gets to pick their life, and if living this way brings happiness, and more importantly doesn’t bring anxiety, go for…
I mostly agree with the article.
There is something inherent in the American DNA to pretend that you are where you are because of ‘hard work’. In reality, most upper-middle class people had tremendous advantages and are completely blind to them. This doesn’t mean they didn’t work hard, it just means other people who also…
Student Loan Question:
I have been working hard over the last year to pay of my loans.
I started at like 22K, and now have 10K. I have 15k in an emergency fund, and another 5k in wealth front. I tend to have large emergency funds due to anxiety. Should I drain wealth front to pay off the loan faster?
I’m very interested in hearing this.
I barely spend any money on clothes and don’t buy them with any regularity.
After college I spent all my graduation money on work clothes, and those have started to deteriorate. I should just come up with an amount of money and spent it, but I am cheap. I also…
