What do you do?

What do you do when it suddenly dawns on you that a family member has changed and not for the good? What do you do when you don't recognize who they are anymore? What do you do when you are concerned about their health and well being? What do you do when it is the proverbial "damned if you do and damned if you don't." What do you do? These are some of the things that are weighing on me currently and I don't have any answers for any of them.

In my recent experience... all i'm left to do is pray. I am now not in relationship with someone so very close to me in my family. It hurts, it's so hard. It's her choice. I had to tell her honestly that i couldn't endorse what she is doing and she proved she couldn't justify it... i told her i could hang but could not participate in those things... she doesn't call anymore. So my prayers are with her. I miss her.. but she isn't who she was right now. I'm praying that girl comes back. You can't control people. they have free will. You have to let go and pray... That is at least what I'm finding.

I'm finding prayer is my only resort as well. Thank you for confirming that.
It is so hard when you become distanced from someone you care about.
Thanks for the incouragment.
