~ Know Where You Stand, Before You Cross The Boundaries To Sin ~
(North Carolina )
Teenage relationships can be fun, and exciting. Although, along with the thrill comes responsibility and boundaries. You must set standards if you want to please God, and yourself in the long run.
As a teenage girl, I know I once lived off of "quotes" for a while. For instance, "You might as well do what you want, because either way people will always judge you", or "It's your life, so do what you want and what makes you happy". If I was reading the bible, instead of searching for "advice" from these quotes, I wouldn't carry the regrets that are apart of me now.
I dated a guy for a total of ten months. He was raised in a strong Christian family, and his father was even a preacher at a Southern Gospel church. Long story short, one thing began to lead to another each time we happened to be alone.
Sure, "everyone else" does it right? But is "everyone else" at true Christian? I didn't think so.
We began to argue over everything. I wasn't receiving any respect from him, and ALL he wanted to talk about and participate in was sexual activities. This was when I told him we needed to end things.
Don't get me wrong, it was one of the hardest things I had to do at the time. It hit hard, and still hurts at times when I begin to think about him or pass by his house. I seriously thought I was in love, but as I look back on 7 months ago, I realize it was only lust.
~ With that being said, I hope all of you girls stay true to who's you are, and don't make the same mistakes I did before it was too late. ~
