I have a couple of friends that their dads drink a lot. One his dad just gets silly and embarrassing. The other Her dad gets mean and abusive. I don’t dare try to say I understand, I couldn’t possibly unless I walked in their shoes. I will admit with Breelin, it explains a lot about her moods. One minute she is nice to me and confides in me. The next minute she wants nothing to do with me. Her moods are giving me whiplash.
How do I handle it? The girl in me wants to just give it back to her, when she says something sarcastic to me. The Christian side of me feels bad for her. When my dad and me drove up on that horrible day, Breelin was really scared. She saw her Mom getting beat, then her Dad turned on her. I was scared and it wasn’t even my Mom laying there. She puts up a front for everyone at school, acting like nothing is wrong. I know different.
My mom always says “When someone is out of character, don’t judge them. You don’t know what is going on in their life.”
I will pray for her and just keep being nice, as hard as that is sometimes. I want to be there if she needs me again.
