Just Needed To ShareI have a daughter who graduated at the top of her high school class. She was a hard worker and self motivated. She was accepted at a private college, and given a great scholarship package that covered about 80% of her college expenses. She did fine her first semester, but then she totally crashed and burned her second semester.
Over the summer, she was hardly ever home. I found out that she started taking meth. She lost her job and has become totally unreliable. She doesn't follow through on even the simplest things. It's hard to see her high school classmates going to college, or working at their jobs. I just want to cry at the waste.
I feel so ashamed of her, but I can't say that out loud to anyone. I just keep my chin up and try to encourage her.
