Hey Elderly Aunt, how do I stop feeling like an inadequate parent/spouse/ professional?

Hey Elderly Aunt, I love my family, and I love my job. I put a lot of effort into spending enough time with both, but it never feels like it’s enough.

Dear Elderly Aunt,
My partner wants to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, but I’ve never been a fan of the holiday—am I obligated to celebrate it?

Hey Elderly Aunt, is OK to not always enjoy being a new parent?

Dear Elderly Aunt,
People always tell new parents “enjoy this time.” But this time — the changing life roles and the massive responsibility of raising humans and the juggling work and sleepiness nights and never being able to have an adult conversation or a minute to your own thoughts — is it OK to not enjoy it sometimes?
