493: Should You Sue Uncle Sam for Allegation Sham? | Feedback Friday
Your promising military career was derailed when former colleagues falsely accused you of wrongdoing to cover their own misdeeds. Even though the timeline proved that your alleged malfeasance would have been impossible and you were cleared of all charges, you missed promotions, eligibility cutoffs, special pay, and accompanying bonuses over the course of the lengthy investigation. Adding insult to these injuries is the message that your higher-ups have elected "not to go forward" with reinstating your qualifications and reimbursing you for your losses. So now you're wondering: should you sue Uncle Sam for this allegation sham?

- In spite of the pandemic, your new business is thriving. Unfortunately, your mental health isn't, and establishing self-care boundaries with your workaholic business partner isn't panning out. Should you try to navigate the partnership for the sake of all you've built, or let it go for the sake of your sanity?
