I’m seriously stressed out right now. My cousin is making some seriously bad decisions that could affect her personal safety or future.
My cousin is 19 and I’m 22. My whole childhood we were really close as I was homeschooled and she was my closest friend/almost like a sister to me. We had similar families as they were/are both extremely religious. A few years ago she was kicked out of her parents house for dating a boy that was no good. Her dad is as stubborn as a mule and they weren’t getting along. He wanted no one to help her but my parents ended up taking her in and paying for her to go to private school.
Around this time I decided to move out without telling my parents because my mom was smothering me. (That’s a story for another post but if you know me at all you’ve heard bits and pieces) My cousin did not approve because I moved in with Fiance (against my parents wishes) and she was not afraid to tell me how she thought. That summer she ended up moving back in with her parents so she could complete her senior year of high school. It was tough but she did it. After that she had the chance to move in with her boyfriend’s sister who owned her own house. I was worried, knowing deep down that her bf and her would break up some day. They did, and after that his sister and her didn’t get along. She she moved again, into an apartment with a girl I knew in high school. This girl from high school is a BAD influence. And it makes me worried.
The morning it says on her Facebook that her tires got SLASHED. Her. tires. were. slashed. I’m guessing it was an ex girlfriend of her new boyfriend (hope that’s not too hard to follow) but in my eyes this is a serious offense. We are all worried for her. She won’t answer the phone for any of us. She’s ignoring all of us. She won’t give me her address for the invites so I have no idea where she’s even living now. I’m just scared.
I mean, I get the whole rebellious stage…I get it. I moved out on my own in with people no one in the family knew. And I’ve had moments where I’ve made stupid choices…but w.t.f. We obviously care about her and she’s being fucking stupid. Can you even help someone who doesn’t want help?
EDIT: I’m sure that was poorly worded. I’m sorry.
