Ask Baba Yaga: What to Do About the Fact That I'm a Huge Shithead?

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.

Ask Baba Yaga: How Will I Know When It's Time to End My Ultimately Doomed Relationship?

Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

How can I enjoy my wonderful relationship, knowing that it will eventually end because we want different things in life, and how will I know when it is time to say goodbye and move on to new things, despite the pain?

BABA YAGA:

)By the sea there is always the stinging salt, always the grief of what is to come, but mostly what you know–is unleashed light. But when it starts to grieve everywhere, all at once, & the cold & the blue & then the dark, then that is what you know;.
