Dear Krachel: How do I find happiness at a job that underpays me?

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:

  • Jane, who wants to encourage more feminine energy in the workplace, but is running up against an issue. How do you communicate the idea of feminine energy to male coworkers who don’t get it and who might find their masculinity threatened?
  • Yuba Love, who quit her old job, moved to a new state, and recently started a new job in a completely different industry. But, in taking the job, she also took a BIG step backward in salary. How can she silence the inner critic that’s mad she isn’t making more money, and see this new job as the potential big opportunity it is? 

We also got an update from Tribe of One, a listener whose question we answered back in November 2020. Find out what happened when she confronted those important people she was convinced disliked her!

And leave a comment below after you’ve listened to share how our advice for these listeners resonated with you.


All seven episodes of Forever Alone, Rachel’s miniseries about her journey through singledom, are now available for listening. Get to binging, if you haven’t yet, and share with your friends (especially the single ones) who need some uplifting!

And if you’ve listened to the whole series and haven’t left a 5-star rating and review, it would delight her if you’d take a minute and do that today!

As always, you can find Forever Alone on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play, Amazon, YouTube, among other places you listen to podcasts.
