The Shaker HALP! Thread

Here is a thread to solicit advice on any subject or struggle we're experiencing on which some input from like-minded folks would be useful.

And because sometimes what we need is permission to go ahead and do what we've already decided is the best thing to do, if you need to ask for permission (which of course is validation and encouragement to give yourself permission), this is the place to do it.

As always, the guidance here is: Be supportive, not judgmental. If you're going to offer advice, make sure it's advice and not criticism.

Also: If you're someone seeking advice, and you've had your fill after a certain point, please feel welcome to note in-thread: "Thank you, that's all the advice I needed!"
