Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, our monthly advice segment where we answer listener questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself.

This month we answered questions from:

  • Ashley, who’s wondering how long is too long to stay at a bridge job?
  • Diana, who listened to last month’s Side Chat and is curious — where’s the line between unreasonable and irresponsible when it comes to quitting your job?
  • JoAnn, who really wants to reduce her hours at work but is afraid her supervisor won’t be happy. How can she ask to do less even though she doesn’t have a “good reason” for asking?

Leave a comment below after you’ve listened to share how our advice for these listeners resonated with you!
