Dear Krachel: How do I get out of a really long rut?


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.

On this episode, we’re answering questions from:

  • Sharon, who realized that she feels threatened by opinionated women because she’s insecure about her own self-expression and wants to know how to get comfortable using her voice.
  • Robert, who’s torn about whether he should break up with his on-and-off boyfriend of 6 years and date other people or stay committed.
  • Grace, who’s been living at home and applying to jobs for a really long time and is tired of nothing working out for her. She knows she’s in a rut and needs a way out, but can’t figure out how to make that happen.

After you’ve listened, leave us a comment below to let us know if our advice for these three people resonated with you, too.

Sometimes it’s really hard to get out of your head and know how you actually feel. How can you figure out what you really want when you can’t see anything clearly?

Advertisers say this about potential customers, but it applies just as much to everyday life: Confused people don’t take action. They elect to stay put and do nothing.

So, if you’ve reached a point where you’re tired of being stagnant and confused, AND…

If you want individual attention, someone to hold you accountable, and the benefit of our substantial experience focused solely on you … all so that you can make more progress in a matter of months than you’d make in years on your own, then 1-on-1 coaching may be ideal for you.

    Grace! Message me because I am and have been for a while been in the same position haha. Seriously though, Grace or others struggling right now I am in the same position and I understand. I did the Passion Short Course, and Krachel did help. However, still trying to find a stable job that aligns with my interests. Anyway, enjoyed this episode. Wish I could work for Krachel haha.

      Hey Audrey! Glad that Grace’s story resonated with you. I’m sure she’ll be glad to know she’s not alone! And I wish we could hire all the people who wanted a cool job, too. 😉
