Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

I recently realized I'm a shitty friend, an apathetic daughter, and a selfish lover. How can I change?

BABA YAGA:

Deep change is unlikely. ; But you may go out to the edge of the pond with the stars below you & the stars above you, & draw down into the ink of yrself where is the feeling, & close yr eyes & bless those who love you anyway even as you are so small. & if you do such-so nightly you will keep the knowledge of who you are, & that will be the beginning of it.
