Promotion, by Akanksha Prakash
She desperately wanted to be promoted. “You’re doing great but the team wants stronger evidence for promotion,” her manager broke the bad news. She felt surprisingly relieved as if this was the outcome she expected all along. She went home and ran herself a bath. Lying in the bathtub she made a mental list of things that mattered to her. Promotion wasn’t on it. Her job wasn’t on it. All the things she had spent 35 years of her life pursuing weren’t on it. She was ready to hit reset. Her body was found in the tub two days later.

Interesting end, although I'm not sure what it means.

Hope she did hit the reset button and not delete, and that she returns to a better life.
