      Hi! I'm GXRL Resident Therapist

      Pallavi

      I’m a therapist. But I’m not your therapist. How valuable does that make me to you? Send me your questions and let’s see….

      "Ask Pallavi" is an advice column….I guess? What is advice really? Do you actually want someone to tell you what you should do? Is that truly going to be helpful? Usually asking for advice is a wish for someone else to take away feelings you don’t want to be dealing with right now. Full disclosure – no one will ever be able to do that for you. But you’ll send questions and I’ll respond. I will be honest about what I think about your situation, and I’ll dig deep, bringing my background as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I might even tell you to get your own therapist, but not before I tell you why (And yes, it is always your parents’ fault).

      Weighing Security Vs. Dreams

      I work a job that I don't like for the money. It is seriously killing my soul. I really want to quit my job and focus on building my dream business, which I have been building in my head for months now, but my current job gives my husband and I health insurance and ensures we don't struggle financially. I have a side hustle that brings in some money, but it's not steady. Agggh, I don't know what to do! Should I tough it out and stay at my job that I hate for security? Or, just go for it and focus all my energy on building my dream business?

      No Me-Time Mom

      My daughter is 10 1/2 and since the pandemic started, she’s super clingy. She lets me go to work—no problems there. She has a good daily routine. But at night she doesn’t want me to leave. So I’ve been sleeping with her. It’s all good, my husband says I snore anyways. But I don’t think it’s healthy for her. And she is always asking me if I’m okay and she tells me she loves me about 20 times too much a day. I may be exaggerating but she does say it a bit more than she should. What can I do?
