cuz she thinks im gonna go out
an get myself hurt
But that has happened sometimes, right? I mean, going out and ending up in a mess somehow. That's the problem for a parent or someone else who's got a guy your age to think about. You want him to have his space and learn to make his own decisions, but at the same time you want him to be safe too.
I know how you feel, but hey, one guy my parents hated and wouldn't let me hang with ended up dead before he was 25 - junkie. Another one has been in and out of jail like a yoyo. And wise confident me? I hit San Francisco when I was 20, just looking to play blues and rock music and hang with cool people, and within 48 hours I was being beaten and abused all over again.
No lecture, Trev, just a reality check.
Maybe the trick here is to see how you can work things out with Sarah. Talk to her about the rules and ask what she needs to see so she can feel okay about backing off a bit. Sound possible?
