This is wonderful. All of these year in advice essays have been wonderful. The amount of affection and gratitude I feel towards the Awl and its writers right now is probably creepy and/or cheesy but WHATEVER. To quote Maria: Thank you, thank you. Thank you.

Just wanted to say that I love this feature every day, but I really love it today.
Chiming in to say YES, THIS and thank you so much for such a lovely and thoughtful post, Lili.
