Here is my advice: unsolicited
In belongings and animals and people. Baggage is heavy. And usually winds up doubling as furniture when you end up staying in a place made for passing through.
Never stay with anyone who loves what they hate about you and hates what they love about you. No one should fall on that sword.
If you feel like dying, sleep on it. If you wake up and still feel like dying, run. Run fast and far and run for your life.
Never, ever, give up the life you love for the one that someone else, or worse, fear- told you was better.
And know that I love you. A love that I never knew in my own life and a love that I have only because I have you.
