A common catch 22 is becoming too complacent in a situation that you do not desire too be in. Whether dependency is involved or legality. Your happiness depends on the emotional stability of your significant other. When the family unit isn't in order, it usually shepherds discourse.
In times of trouble, by all means seek counsel but do it discreetly. Only languish before peers & elders when you need too reach out for help & have faith. Be the rock of the Family. Organize yourself, your crew & carry on w/ class & dignity. Manifest your beliefs & traditions w/ solidarity.
Teens; as a survivor of a fatal accident, I know the difference between being cool & being safe. You'd rather upset your Parents, your Siblings or your best friend. Young Men; the coolest Date you could ask the hottest chick at a Party is, Sunday Service & Lunch. That's one she'll always remember.
