First of all, I want to thank you all so much for your comments and support!! It honestly means the world to me to know that I am not alone, and that this really does happen to people from all walks of life...
I did text her this morning to wish her a Happy Valentine's Day and told her that I love her. I want her to know that - always. Well, she took that opportunity to try and make me feel guilty about blocking her cell phone. Says if I love her, I will turn her phone back on so she can get calls for job interviews. Says that I am putting a burden on her because she cannot find places to stay, or rides to places, etc. I explained that her life as it is right now is a result of her actions and choices, not mine. I certainly did not want this life for my daughter.
And then there is the other side of me that thinks maybe shutting her cell down leaves her with no opportunity to get a real job. That maybe it forces her to the criminal lifestyle. I certainly don't want to do that, either.
She asked if I would turn it back on if she paid the bill every month.....and so I sit debating.....what do I do? I certainly don't want to enable her but I also don't want her to not be able to get a legitimate job. So....what do I do? Advice?
