A report of teen or child abuse is made every ten seconds worldwide. About half are legitimate.
Its a much higher percentage than that. And if it's serious, and you're not just being delicate, there's a number you can call to remove yourself from the situation.
As for my own problems, in case anyone's wondering why I've not been as active as normal on Tremulous... Well, its standard teenage melodrama, save for the fact that I know its melodrama.
I'm in a relationship, and three months ago, in the middle of the relationship, I could have said I loved her, and it would have been the truth. I was completely ready to spend the rest of my life with her. But now... I don't know. I still enjoy hanging out with her, but I can't say "I love you" to her without feeling a pang of guilt. I can't say it truthfully because its no longer true. I no longer love her in the way she wants me to love her. But, my real problem lies in the fact that she truly loves me; its akin to adoration. And I just can't bear to tell her no. I feel like I have a choice, between my happiness, and hers... And I can't bring myself to ruin her happiness, as much a lie as it is. I'm too nice of a guy. I want to tell her, but I don't have the heart. I steel myself up, but then the way her face brightens up from her sour grumble when she sees me in the morning when I get off the bus... My resolve doesn't stand a snowballs chance in hell.
I know, its probably just teenage drama-y angst, but, I don't think I can make myself give up her happiness for my own.
