Apparently by your actions, you have already started to decide that the answer to my previous question, “now or never?” is never.
Don’t make me a promise that you know you are going to break when something better comes up. Don’t make me a promise that you can’t keep. Don’t lie to me. Don’t say “oh this just suddenly came up” when you’ve know about it for some time but you just didn’t want to mention it til last minute.
Take some responsibility. When you make me and your mother a promise, stick to it. Be more responsible. You are 18 years old, sometimes you are going to have to give up going out and having a good time, to actually keep your word and do what you need to do to be happy and successful in the long run. Make a sacrifice. Which you actually are, you are sacrificing me and our relationship for you to go out with friends and ignore me. And that is your decision. I’ve done all I can do. I can no longer try to fix this or change you.
I surrender. I’m giving in. I’m giving up.
I have been let down tonight. I am feeling a level of disappointment I have never felt before.
