However, I could never be my mother. My mom got pregnant with me when she was 18 years old. She started her family so young and gave up a lot to keep me and my twin sister. I could never do that though. I have big hopes and dreams. I need to become a doctor and join the Air Force. You can’t possibly understand how much I really and truly need that. You have been with me for 8 months. I know that seems like a long time to you but it’s really not. Yet you say that we have been together for so long that it’s weird that we’re not having sex. I CANNOT DO ANYTHING TO DESTROY MY CHANCES AT THE LIFE THAT I HAVE WORKED SO HARD FOR. I wish that you could understand that. I really can’t risk the chance of getting pregnant. I can’t. I really, REALLY can’t.
