Carolyn Hax is also known as Dear Abby, a writer for the Washington Post and syndicated to 200 other newspapers throughout the United Stated since 1997.
People write to Dear Abby asking for advice on many topics. Carolyn Hax listens to the questions and often responds with heart searching questions such as "What do you really want? And what are you willing to do to get it." The answer often comes back that what we are really willing to do to change the current situation is almost nothing. The question responds true no matter who asks or whether they asked the question in the past or today. What are we willing to do to change our situation!
