Not really… other than letting them know you’re there for someone if they need/want help.  Other than that, it’s hard to help someone who doesn’t want the help.

 

Sorry your cousin’s in a bad place.  Keep on being supportive, eventually she’ll come through!

Unfortunately, you can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped. So far you haven’t posted anything that sounds like she is in real danger, I actually got my tires slashed in high school, and it was totally random, so don’t look too far into that, yet! Let her know you are there for her, but if you come off too strong, it is going to backfire completely and make her feel smothered.

My cousin went through the same thing – moved out, hung out with a really bad crowd and got pregnant at 18.  She is now an RN with an adorable little boy and a very stable fiance.  She’ll come around.

@SweetRose2011: She’ll find her way back, I promise.  And she’ll remember that you gave her space and were there for her, and you’ll be closer than ever.  🙂
