My younger self wouldn’t have listened to any advice— but if I could talk to her I’d say it’s harder than you think. I’d say ‘Yes, this is tough, but it gets tougher. You don’t know what you don’t know, but you’re learning those things. Keep going. Wade through the darkness. Surround yourself with people further along the journey who can offer guidance and get off Tinder.
