How to Lose a Teenager in 10 Days

I don't know how, but it's happened. **** if you're reading this, know that I love you. I tried giving you everything in my power to make things right. It hurt me to see you make wrong choices and put my family at risk. It broke my heart to see you drive away. I wanted to put my arms around you, tell you that I love you. I wanted to explain...but I never got the chance. My world is heavy, and I can't breathe. Somehow I lost.

  2. Little Miss, I just want to hug you right now. The post was great and I know it's what you want to say to her. I hope she reads it as well. I know how much you care about her but you had to do what you had to do.

  4. Uhm...aren't your kids 5 and under?

    For a second I thought Erika had taken over your blog, but it looks like Ms. Jae and Just Me are in the loop....

  5. I hope this message gets to whomever you wanted to read it.

    Teenagers are hard. They are confused and angry. Atleast I know that I was.

  7. I am sorry you both are going through a tough time. Hopefully in the short time you were with her you made an impact that will be with her a lifetime.

    It is tough being a teenager. You want people to love you and respect you but you want to live life your own way.

    I thought I could learn more making my own mistakes. HA! Those weren't the lessons I wanted to learn!

    My prayers are with you both.

  8. I have always said that kids (including teenagers) know they are loved by the limitations placed upon them - it shows that someone cares. Unfortunately, a lot of people can become so conditioned to believing that they do not deserve to be loved - that they are, in fact, unlovable.

    This is so not true.

    I don't know who you are or where you are but please - let Little Miss love you - allow her to offer the type of life you deserve by knowing and accepting that you are valuable and that someone cares.

  9. Sometimes it's hard to make the right decisions that help people in the long run, even though they don't recognize that at the time. It isn't easy to love someone, to do what is best for them and for your family, when doing what's best isn't the easy choice. But.. the person you wrote this to - they have to know how much you love them, and that means something.. it means everything. It means you're keeping their best interest at heart - even if they don't see it right now.

  10. Friend, please contact someone for support. Life's tough and we weren't meant to go it alone. You are meant to either. People love you. Feel free to get my email address, I can find help for you. No that you are not alone and never have to be.

  11. Little Miss, the teenageer of whom you speak has to know you love her. It's so obvious. I hope they understand.

  12. If your post doesn't say it all, I don't know what will- it is so obvious how much you care for her. You know that verse in the Bible that says "wounds from a friend can be trusted"- you're just looking out for her best interests, and you have to protect your family. Praying for you both.

  13. To a lost one:

    I can feel your pain. I know what it is like to feel like you have no way out. That you feel hopeless and total dread. Just remember that it is just a feeling, it can't hurt you.

    Where ever you are, look outside and find some clouds. Clouds are amazing and you can't NOT breathe when you look at them. You have to take a deep breath. Try it. And breathing is what you need right now.

    Tell yourself over and over again "It's going to be ok". Nothing can't be fixed. Believe me I know.

    You are a strong person and you are a good person. People love you and want you to have a happy peaceful life.

    We need you.

    Make contact and show that you care, which I know you do. I know it is hard, but it is important that you do.

    You are loved and it WILL be ok.

  14. Putting limits on someone you love is probably harder on the person who has to put forth the limits. This is something that only a Mother would know. Saying No or imposing rules are not fun for either party.

    Please know that nothing was done in spite of you, it was done out of love. You may not see it today but know that you are loved by a Very Special Woman and she only wants the best for you, no matter how much it hurts her love is bigger and stronger than your hurt and she is willing to take you with faults and all.

  17. I know it is hard right now, but if you truly believe you were protecting your family and her best interest, stand by your decision. She will realize at some point that you were trying to help.

    Friend, please take a moment and put yourself in Little Miss' shoes, she loves and cares about you and only wants what is best for you.

  18. I've been thinking about you both since yesterday.

    Little Miss - You are the MOMMY and you have to do what is best for your family. That is your job. Protect those babies with your life!

    Friend - Someday, you'll be the MOMMY and you will understand what Little Miss had to do. It takes someone who truly loves you to tell you that you are screwing up.

  19. All you can do is your best to reach those you love--but in the end your children and the family you have made have to come first. Some day this person will understand. I have to believe that.
