Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, a 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:
- Ellie, whose friends are all talk no action when it comes to personal development. What do you do when your close friends aren’t committed to growing as people?
- Tribe of One, whose parents have each moved on to new relationships after their 31-year-long marriage ended in divorce. Their new significant others seemingly have no interest in getting to know her, though. How can she be more accepting of people who don’t care about having a relationship with her?
- Reality Checker, whose passive-aggressive coworker has finally come to the attention of their manager. Now that he’s being held more accountable for his behavior, Reality Checker wants to stop reading into every little interaction, but it’s understandably hard to trust him. How do you tell when someone is actually being passive-aggressive, or when you’re reading too much into it?
