My best friend of eight years, T, has always been really smart and has always had good judgment. (Especially when it comes to fashion!) But lately, she has been making some bad choices. Here they are:
*She is getting mixed up with a really bad guy.
*He is 18. She is 16. She needs to be older by law.
*He has semen. She has eggs. They need to use protection, which she won't use. (She doesn't have a lot of money, and I gave her a fistfull and told her to buy some condoms and pills. She won't. She has about 20 cheesy excuses of why she won't, too.)
*He is no good. He sleeps around with a lot of girls, he is just using her for sex. He'll end up hurting her, I know he will. He doesn't evern know HOW to love.
The other day, she came to me and was all freaked out. She was like, "Oh my god, Mara! I think I'm pregnant! I haven't gotten my period!!!" The next day she got it. It was just a couple days late.
She is scaring me, big time. She doesn't have a good influence at home, either. Her mom had her when she was 16 and her older brother (by a different man) when she was 13. She always has a different guy at the house and she drinks and smokes A LOT.
My friend sleeps around and she doesn't use protection. She has become a major slut. (What's worse, she isn't a safe slut!-If there is such a thing.)
She is going to a party tomarrow night and I don't know how to talk her out of it. This party is no good. All these really bad, wild, no good, male-slut guys are going to be there along with a bunch of girls who have sex with animals. She didn't want to go at first, but a guy talked her into it. He bribed her with money-probably from the drugs he sold last week.
I feel so scared. I don't know how I'm ever going to talk her out of going. I just know something bad is going to happen. How do I talk some sense into her?
In life, there are choices to make every where you go. Do your best to follow your heart and listen to the advice of people you love and trust.
