I'm not sure about this...

I'm not really sure where to start this. It could be a really long explanation. I have a friend from where I used to live in Iowa who is 20. Right now she's in Chicago, so she texts my boyfriend and tells him she's here and how does she get to our house. First of all it's 630 in the morning. Second, white girls should not wander around this neighborhood unsuporvised. Third it's 630 in the morning! So boyfriend calls his mom's phone and has her wake me up. Trust me, after getting up with him at 2 am. I am not a very bright ray of sunshine. He says I have something to tell you (I'm thinking someone died) and he says, your "friend" is in Chicago. I was like, huh. Trust me I was NOT awake. He said yeah she's at blah blah and blah streets. I said okay. He said call her and find out what she's doing here. I call her and she says"I ran away." We just went through this with her less than a week ago. I convinved her that following her parents rules and going to college and working actually didn't sound like that bad of a life. If you have to follow their rules then so be it. Finish school and move on. I guess my pep talk didn't really work out too well. I guess I'm just frustrated because her parents aren't bad people, they just really care about her and want her to do good things and they know (as well as I do) that the people she hangs out with aren't good people. I used to hang out with the same crowd, the only good thing that came out of that group of people is the fact that I have a greater understanding of what I DON'T want to be. That and my LOVE of Chicago which lead me to the LOVE of my life. So anyway...friend...has me up early and frustrated. She knows she can't stay with us and she knows that who ever she is with is not allowed in our house. If she comes over here all weirded out on drugs I am going to kick her out. I left that behind. I've been clean for almost 5 months and I don't need people like her dragging me down. I have dreams. I have plans and I have a good stable life now. I just hope she realizes that the streets of Chicago are nothing like Iowa...it's a different ball game out here...

My thing is I don't want her to take 7 years of what I did. I want her to see now that my life can be good. But Boyfriend knows too the people she associates with and doesn't even want HER here when he's not. It's a hard line between two people I love...but as I was just told by another good friend...I have to live with Boyfriend. I don't have to live with the other one...

 

~~I B CUTE! Don't argue with me I know I'm cute!~~

imho --> at that age, not only is she trying to find herself, she will have to live & learn. keep playing the tough 'love role' so that she knows it is unacceptable. she may fall hard a few times and need picked up & cleaned off. but like yourself, she will grow tired of it eventually.
