Recently I’ve been faced with a very trying predicament.

A friend of mine recently went through a rather messy divorce. Since then she has been faced with the responsibility of finding a place for her and her son to stay. At first she looked like she was on the right track – she got a job and started saving up money. But then she started dating a much younger guy, and since then it has seemed like she’s wanted to regress back to her high school days as opposing facing the responsibility she’s been bestowed with.

She denies it’s happening, yet her family confirms it and I can see it with my very own two eyes. Week after week she spends everything she has and doesn’t have anything left over to save even though she lives with her mother.

I don’t know how to tell her this, though. I don’t know how to tell her that what she’s doing is really worrying me because she could end up affecting her life in ways that I’m sure she doesn’t want to see happen. I don’t know how to tell her that because she’s such a proud woman that she will not only deny it but probably get pretty downright angry with me too for even thinking she could be slipping off.

So I sit and I wait, hoping that something will happen to snap her out of this, or that maybe I’ll be proved to be wrong all along.

I understand what she’s feeling. I know what it’s like to look at the mess behind you and the mountain in front of you and just want to say screw it all. You can’t do that though… otherwise that mess and that mountain will just continue to grow…
