Stuff, your mother is grown woman, she'll see sense if she wants to. You should be more concerned for yourself at the moment since you, potentially, have an easier way out than she will.
I'm gonna take you guys up on this venting thing, but I don't really want to do it over Skype because I'm not really looking for an active conversation on this subject.
The fact that her and I are both too fucked up to be in a healthy and happy relationship sort of bothers me. I mean, we did the mature thing and talked and decided to hold off on romance until we're both sane, and that might be great because we'll have more time to be friends and to bond and blahdy blah, but I feel like it's going to be a bit hard for me. Being friends, that is. As it stands, I'm crazy about this girl, because we like the same shit and find the same stuff funny and I could just... see something in her eyes when we were together that makes this especially difficult. I know we did the right thing here and that everything's going to be fine eventually, but I can't help but regret it a bit. Which is inevitable, I suppose.
On the subject of why I'm fucked up, well... I don't particularly know how to go about fixing it. I have a difficult time trusting people IN GENERAL, because my ex... Ah shit, I'm sure a lot of you guys have heard the story before, but here goes.
I met her in the middle of summer, a little bit after school got out. First date, we went to the mall and just kinda putzed around (we were both 17 at the time, so there wasn't much that we could actually DO in town). Then we just kinda sat in the park and talked. For, like, a good three hours. It was great. The relationship lasted three months and it was awesome. I'm tellin' ya, there wasn't a single fight. Maybe some minor kerfuffles over dumb things, but that was the extent of it. Out of the blue (or what seemed to be out of the blue for me, i dunno how it went down from her perspective) she wanted a break. Which sucked. That had never happened to me until then, so I was kinda... Well, I was a bit pissed about it, and it showed. So, skipping all the messy details, we broke up.
A week later, she's dating a drug dealer (that did my ego some good, i'm tellin' ya).
So because of that, I have a hard time loving anyone and trusting people and just generally being a person in a relationship.
And I don't really know how I should go about fixing that.
