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:
- Sarah, who is distressed by how much she doesn’t like herself and how all of her behavior reflects that lack of self-esteem (to the point where she says it feels like “her soul is screaming every day”). How does someone show themselves love when they’re not convinced there’s anything about them to love?
- D, who loves to dance but whose husband is not supportive of her passion. How can she get over the guilt she feels in pursuing something that her spouse doesn’t understand or particularly like?
- Christine, who says she recently sabotaged a very new relationship because she’s unsure that she wants to be a stepmom to his 3 kids one day. Did she jump the gun? Is it wrong for her to expect a life of “firsts” with a future partner, rather than be someone’s second spouse/co-parent?
At the beginning of this episode, we also have a REALLY good update from someone whose question we answered in December. Let’s just say it’s very karmically satisfying.
After you’ve listened, leave us a comment to let us know how our advice for these three listeners resonated with you!
