Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, a monthly advice segment where we answer audience questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself.
Panic, depression, and fear turned out to be the theme of this month’s episode, which is appropriate given what we’re all weathering right now. We hope it’s exactly what you need to hear to address your own concerns about life and the future.
On this episode, we’re answering questions from:
- Multi-Trick Pony, who feels so trapped in their current job that they’re having panic attacks in their SLEEP. They’ve sent hundreds of applications for other jobs, but no one will give them a chance to move into a different field. How can they change that?
- Steven, who struggles with moderate-to-severe depression and is having a hard time coping at a new job. He’s not showing up as an ideal employee right now, and he definitely doesn’t want to get fired, but (given past history) he’s also afraid of the backlash if he’s too honest about his current state. Should he speak up about his mental health or not?
- Meg, who, like many of us, is adjusting to a very abrupt work-from-home and homeschooling routine. She’s worried about what happens when life goes back to normal. How are we going to manage (let alone relax and enjoy life again) without having PTSD or always waiting for the next disaster to strike?
After you’ve listened, leave us a comment below to let us know how our advice for these three listeners resonated with you!
