Dear New Girl:

Dear New Girl:

Someone told me about you last night. They told me you are very much in love with someone who has some serious, serious problems. You are so young. You have your whole life ahead of you. You said you were going to travel to Europe. You said you were going to do mission work. You have a promising future ahead of you. You're on your way to finishing college. But a troubled young man is getting a hold of your mind. You're losing your focus. You're beginning to think his problems are something you can fix--his actions, something you can control. Oh New can't do either one. You'll never fix him. You'll never be able to stop him from self destructing. You've seen this in someone else in your life. Someone very close to you. You know people can't be stopped unless they do it for themselves. You've seen how they take everyone who loves them right down with them.

If I had one wish today; one prayer, it would be that you would do the bravest and hardest thing you've ever done in your life and walk away. I know you love him, but love yourself more. You have your whole life ahead of you. Live it. Live your life, not his.

New Girl, you are not welcome here. Be free.
