Ask Baba Yaga: Are People Judging Me Because I'm Single and Childless?

Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,
I am an introverted person and generally happier when I am alone. But I often feel that others are judging me and think that I'm weird because I don't have a "significant other" or kids by this time in my life. I don't think this judgment is all in my head. How can I become more comfortable with the life that I have chosen for myself?


It is strong to be yr own creature, to carry the weight of yr life on yr own back. & it is strong & strange to be unknown by others, to do:all the knowing yrself. But love must be weaving in & out of you somewhere. )Where , is it going, where does it come from? If you can answer abundantly, you are a Whole creature, & must be held in great awe by those who question you.; For I am such a being & it is a great honor to be unseen by the earthly, but to love & be loved by the darkling things I seek. .

This is lovely. And it's useful advice even for people like me - people who are emphatically NOT happiest when alone, but who are currently alone.

As always, thank you baba yaga for knowing what exists inside my heart.


Baba Yaga, you remain one of my favorite mysterious entities on the Internet. You always speak the most direct, honest, and necessary truths.


This is perhaps my favorite Baba Yaga of all time. OF ALL TIME.
