Lydian, age 17 at the moment, went through a closet full of clothes and chose only her favorites, giving the rest of her stuff away. She gave away everything except her guitar and a collection of crystals, her computer, and some notebooks she needs for her classes. Should you feel sorry for Lydian? Is she going to regret our radical decision to “get rid of” everything and leave the U.S.? I can’t speak for her, but she certainly seems much happier now than she did 6 months ago.
