Krista opens up about the loss of her husband, the range of grief she’s experienced since, and the simple shifts that can help us process and heal. She also shares why we need to rethink the 5 stages of grief, what she dislikes about some mainstream concepts about the grieving process, and how to let go of guilt around experiencing joy after loss.

    Are You Having A Quarter-Life Crisis?

    This week, the girls are talking about the concept of a quarter-life crisis, and how they’re definitely amidst one. They discuss how it differs from what they experienced in their 20s, what feels eerily similar, and what actually helps them stabilize during times of uncertainty. They also audit some major life categories and reveal which feel great, and which feel off. If you thought you paid your dues in your 20s, but are stumblin’ around your 30+ years wondering WTF, you’re not alone!

Been getting me through some hard times

I started listening in the beginning of the pandemic when I was laid off from my job and felt like the world was ending. Over the years, the girls and their guests have implemented comedy with mental health and well-being and has always been a highlight of my week. As I enter another rough period of life from being blind sided by my partner of 4 and 1/2 years leaving, I listened to the episode with Leo Babauta and remembered how much this podcast helped me get through the last few years. Thank you for the wonderful content you put out! It truly makes a difference.

On and off listener

I’ve been listening to self-helpless on and off for years, and recently came back to the show. I’ve been loving the episodes lately. Thanks for the quarter life crises episode, such a needed reminder to take a deep breath and try to be present and enjoy the life I’ve built for myself!

Love the podcast! Brings me so much comfort!

I’ve been listening to the podcast for a while now, and Kelsey and Delaney have been such great role models for me. This podcast has helped me navigate so much of the anxiety, doubts, and discomfort I have had post-college and this first year of medical school. It’s so nice to have what feels like two hilarious big sisters who can share their wisdom and aren’t afraid to be vulnerable. Love every episode! Thank you!
