Teen girls, who could easily be your daughter, confide in me secrets that they don’t share with their moms.
I wake up and ask myself every day, ‘Why did you have sex with him?’ and I can’t even answer it. I just felt like I had to…I refuse to tell my mom. I never want her to find out. I hate myself for not being able to control this stuff.
When you spoke, you brought tears to my eyes because it's like you understood and weren't passing judgment.
I wish I had met you about three months earlier. I unfortunately [lost my virginity to] a guy that didn’t even have the audacity to call me the next day. I had a ‘pregnancy scare,’ and I had to go through the entire emotional trauma alone…I had to go to my mom…The only thing that’s helping me is knowing that my mom still loves me. Please stop other girls from making my mistake.
Notice the relief in her words? This young lady knows she messed up.
