But I feel so sad for you — I mean, you're in such a tight corner that you're requesting serious life advice from me. That's kind of heartbreaking. I can tell from your letter that you're feeling pretty alone right now, and you reached out to someone, and even though that someone is entirely unqualified to help you (honestly, I can't stress this enough), you're trying and that should count for something. So I haven't been able to answer your letter, all these months, but I haven't quite been able to delete it either. And thus, here we are."
