ASK UNCUT - Can we stop with speaking your truth

Hey Lifers,
Welcome to your weekly unpacking of dilemmas.
Today we kick things off by unpacking whether the whole 'speaking your truth' and being brutally honest can actually be cruel. "No offence but" doesn't always translate.

Then we jump into your questions!

I’ve just found out I’m pregnant and I am trying to decide on baby names. There is one name that I have loved for years (literally), I had it written down in my notes from 2017 - because I mean, who doesn’t have a list of baby names they love? My best friend’s sister had a baby 18 months ago and named the baby the name I have loved since 2017. I see my best friend’s sister and her baby often… is it bad if I still go ahead and use this name even though I’ll see her and her baby often? … the spelling would be different but it would be the same name. Should I ask her if she’s okay with it?

I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and my husband and I have not had sex in weeks. Prior to this we had a very healthy sex life. I’ve brought it up multiple times with him and he’s said that’s it’s difficult to have sex with me when I have such a big tummy. He tries to reassure me by saying I’m beautiful but it’s hard to be sexually attracted to me. I’ve suggested we try other positions where my belly isn’t visible to him which he says “yeah we can try” but still nothing. I also know he often masturbates. It’s already hard to see my body going through all these changes but to also feel undesired by my husband hits even harder. Is it normal for your partner to not want to be intimate with you at this stage in pregnancy? I worry that if we don’t have sex until after the 6 weeks baby is born that there’s going to be an immense pressure on it. I don’t know what else I can do to encourage him - it also is a massive hit to my confidence every time I get shut down for sex.

As businesswomen who work incredibly hard, how do you deal with the haters trying to bring you down? I have a business that is pretty successful. I work hard 7 days a week and put my heart and soul into it. Yet one negative review, or people trying to slander our name, and I can’t get it out of my head. How do you cope?
