What you can do:
This is the time to talk, listen and seek wise counsel.
Talk about it! You both need to talk right now and truly listen to what the other is saying and feeling. Like you, she may be fearful, in shock and worried about the future. Having someone who will truly listen is the best gift you can give her right now.
Express yourself honestly. It’s normal to have feelings of anger, frustration and fear. But make sure she knows she is not alone.
Not only is this the time to talk to each other but also the time to talk with others- parents and others close to the situation. It’s often more stressful to wait than it is to initiate the conversations.
This is also a time to seek wise counsel. We can arrange a male peer counselor for you to talk to who will understand the issues and concerns that you are struggling with. Contact the Life Choices Care Center at 317-467-9700 to arrange for a peer counselor.
When faced with a difficult situation, it’s always best to wait before making decisions. Gather all the information, talk with each other, family and seek wise counsel before you make any decisions. We’re here to help…..
