Drop the rope. The more you push and insert yourself the more she will pull away. You will just need to let her know you’ll always be there for her and let her live her life, hopefully it’s just a phase and she will resume your relationship when she’s grown a bit.

She’s a teenager, so this all sounds VERY normal to me. But this boyfriend is probably no good. Unfortunately, teens will hide things MORE and pull away MORE when you push them, especially if they’re already clearly going through angsty/emotional periods. I was the very same. I’d suggest you let her know very pointedly that you understand what it’s like to have had similar feelings and experiences, and that you’re there to talk anytime she needs it. You’re a safe haven too, not like she probably thinks about your parents.
