I don’t want to hang anyone out to dry…

I was 15 when my mother said that to me. If I had known what a mandated reporter is, I wouldn’t have told her. She reported me. Not him. I’m the one who lost things. Especially my home. My mother chose him. I still do not understand. It isn’t that she didn’t believe me. She was an eye witness! But she sure did convince every other adult that I was lying. What would I have to gain? Homelessness.  Meth addiction. And a few other risky behaviors that should never have had to happen. I was just trying to survive. Sometimes I wish I didn’t.

But she didn’t want to hang anyone out to dry…
