I have been contemplating on how I should start writing this interaction but I’m pretty sure that I’ve promised that I need to write something at least once a week.
So here goes. This person is a long time friend of mine. We’ve known each other since we were 14. More than a decade ago she was a hooligan. We grew up in a dodgy neighbourhood. Exposed to too many things I must say, coming from a small little country.
But we met at a twist of fate. She liked me very much as a friend. Often, she would back me up when I am bullied. She would dig out dirt on my ex boyfriend and give me numerous reasons to dump my ex boyfriend (who was a jerk). For very good reasons i must say.
But the girl I met now seemed so different from the one i grew up with.
She is in a world of her own. Suffering from disillusion and denial. (okay, maybe its a tad to serious). But the truth is, she’s changed. My heart goes out for her. But my mind is telling me that it’s not that simple.
The loneliness and the lack of a companion scares her. So much that she was willing to stay for someone who uses her and hurts her.
How can i help her?
