I Am In a Broken Marrage

Married On Paper Only Our 20th anniversary was in March 2012, but we have been gradually drifting apart for the past 4 years or so. It has been most noticeable in the past year, ever since the woman I will call 'Lisa' came... [more]

  • I Hate Rude People

    Bragging Rights? I've seen a lot of rude behavior in my life, from simple rudeness like not holding the door open for the person coming into the shop to outright rudeness such as people screaming at the top of their l… [more]
  • I Have Hit Midlife Crisis

    Last Chance And Unsure Today is my 43rd birthday, and the 5th birthday I've felt pretty depressed on...not about my age, more about the path I'm on and the frustration that I'm feeling about my own indecision about changes … [more]

    I Shouldn't Feel This Way
    I'm home with my daughter and husband, the holiday dinner is just about finished, and everything else is ready to go. We've had no major issues, no family drama, and we have been watching the holiday movies most of the day.I'm feeling so awful that I didn't get the chance to get back up north to visit my siblings and my parents, who were all asking me to come up for Christmas Eve at my sister's house. They must think that I am a terrible person. I explained that I had to stay around town for several reasons and they understood but I am still beating myself up. Sometimes I hate myself.… [more]

    I don't miss the job much...but I miss you. I miss the winks in the hallway, the sweet smiles, your shyness....all the things that you have done for me and all the help that you give others that goes largely unrecognized.You were one of the few people in my life that I felt I could open up to, something very rare for me. I have nobody to talk to...not a pity party here, just a fact. I wish that I could contact you again. I'm sorry that you don't understand why I left and don't agree with it. Maybe you will in time. I'm not angry with you or anyone else. I'd rather you start sending me messages or at least call me up on the mobile and voice your unhappiness...this silent treatment sucks.I hat… [more]

    Ashamed to Work in This Field!!!!
    I was laid off in late December since I wasn't part of the company's succession plan (they wanted younger, cheaper, and someone without seizures) and I'm legally pursuing that but that is a whole other story. I've been on the job hunt since then because I am the sole breadwinner for my family and the pressure is on to find something else in my field for now while I complete my schooling to change careers. I work in HR, and am ashamed to say that I do based on a few of my recent experiences in my own job hunt and from what I have been hearing from other people who are also looking for work. I called today to follow up on a position that I applied for and the conversation went like this:Me: "H… [more]

    Thanks for Nothing!
    Dear HR Director,You brought me on as your Sr. HR Generalist and got a bargain deal at that since I was an out-of-work HR Manager at that time. You promised me a full-time position after the contract period was up, and gave me millions of compliments on how well I was doing. I came in at 5AM several times a week when nobody else in our department would to make sure that the midnight shift had HR support, and stayed late to make sure that the other off-shifts had HR support. I went out of my way to do the right things and didn't miss time, slack off on the job, etc.Imagine my surprise when I accidentally find out that one of your HR interns from another location is coming down to our location… [more]
