Dear Krachel: How do I detach from negative people?



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.

How can she stop absorbing negative energy so she can live her life in peace? Emily, a college senior whose parents have consistently told her she’s “average” and “won’t succeed.” A lifetime of being torn down by the people meant to love and uplift her the most has left her fearful and lacking in confidence. How can she believe something different about herself, and stop allowing the toxic messages from her family into her life? Leave a comment after
