WATCH: Rachel Bloom Perfectly Sings The Challenges Of Being A Female Boss

Nobody quite nails the weird, difficult intricacies of life quite like Rachel Bloom. And even better, she does it in song.

Her latest spot-on musical number is all about the challenges of being a female boss, which includes: being nice but not too nice, dealing with mansplaining from your employees, balancing everyone’s feelings, and figuring out how much boob is too much boob to show at work.

Oh, and also why sobbing into your Ruth Bader Ginsburg pillow in the privacy of your office is always a good idea.

Watch below, and feel a lot less alone.
