I've been somewhat of a counselor to my sister this past week. Despite the warnings and discouragement from everyone around her, April got into a relationship with a boy that she should have known was bad news from the very beginning. The past three days, she has called me crying, over one thing or another that has happened between her and this guy. I hate to say I told you so, so I just try to listen and tell her what I know from my past experiences. But it makes me sad. Not just April, but all girls, they make me sad, and sometimes, just sick.
Cold had it right when they wrote the song "Stupid Girl". Don't even worry about the lyrics, the title says it all. That's right, I'm going to turn on my own kind, and sell them out- GIRLS ARE JUST PLAIN STUPID. While most of us wise up eventually and realize that our destiny and future is in our OWN hands and no one else's, there are a few of us out there that don't ever come to this realization, and that's a sad thing.
I love to tell people that ALL YOU HAVE TO LIVE FOR IN LIFE IS YOUR OWN HAPPINESS, IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY- THERE IS NOTHING ELSE. No one else in this world is going to give you happiness or contentment, you must find that on your own. Why don't most girls understand this? Why are there so many girls out there that feel stuck in a relationship with someone who treats them like crap or hits them because they are too scared to leave? If those girls have anything to be scared about, they should be scared of what might happen if they don't leave. No one deserves to be treated badly, but some girls will just sit around and live with it, and these are the stupid girls I speak of.
Girls, relationships are hard enough without all the added drama of an a$$hole guy treating you like crap. Relationships are meant to be a good thing, it's unfortunate that so many people have this fact backwards in their mind. Being in a good relationship means respecting them person you are with and showing them love, it entails being your true self with your partner. It means bringing them up when they are down and supporting them in any way possible when times get hard for them. Relationships aren't supposed to cause problems, relationships, if anything, should alleviate them.
April- Thank God you got out of that situation when you did, I am proud of you for that. Please don't ever scare Mom, Dad, and I like that again. We were TRULY worried. We love you and are here if you need ANYTHING, and we have nothing but your best interest at heart.
