Last night my 13 year old wrote me the following letter:
I think I need some help, I mean with like my issues and stuff. Because I can't think of anything else to do. And I know you don't really have anymore ideas. I know you don't really understand how I can be so sad when my actions show the total opposite. it's almost like I start to be happy and then I start to think about how I usually am sad inside and then it starts all over. i don't know if that made sense but it is kinda hard to explain. i think that it might be easier to talk to someone who I don't know and who doesn't really know me so that I won't have a reason to hold anything back. i know you always say that I can tell you anything, but for some reason I feel like it is too hard to talk to you."
Now mind you this kind of thing has been going on for more than 6 months. She does genuinely seem happy most of the time. She says that she is just acting. We have talked to our bishop and he has talked to her. I think I will show him the letter.
What would you do?
