I had this girlfriend not long ago. I care about her more than anything in the world yet I didn't realize it at the time unfortunately. She left me out of the blue and has started hanging out with unsavory folks all of the sudden. Every day. I worry about her all day every day. I'm concerned she will end up pregnant, with syphillis, and a meth addiction. These aren't unfounded worries or figments of my imagination by any means, real concerns... The biggest problem is she is young and impressionable and has never had parents to push her to do the right thing. Her father died when she was quite young, it's very unfortunate, he was a great guy. Her mother isn't interested in what she's doing, ever. Her step-dad isn't/wasn't allowed to administer any discipline whatsoever, so even if he did care he's not allowed to show it. The girl has a heart of gold but a mean streak also which didn't help our relationship any. I realize I wasn't always fair to her and did plenty of fucking up but I have since realized how much I care about her and see how "I did her so wrong for so long". She won't listen to any of it and will only talk about how she is grown up and can make her own decisions. I'm just worried about her making the wrong decisions like she had when she was younger. Her siblings are worried about her too. Her new best friend who has some serious issues of her own (like the clap) threatened tonight to smash my head in with a brick. I find that rather fucked up personally. I have never threatened violence of any sort on this girl and I am worried sick about her and just want the best for her. I know I wasn't perfect or always there for her. I regret that more than anything. I feel like I am wholly responsible for whatever happens to her since I am the only one in her life who cared enough, or that she listened to. I miss her more than anything and I wish she would believe me when I say I have changed and would never do anything to hurt her and just want to do the best I can for her. I think the best I can do for this girl would be good enough for any girl.
