There was a 14-year-old girl living around my neighborhood who was extremely tough, fun, gorgeous and was the star of every party she attended. My friends and I later discovered that, underneath that image was a very troubled person, filled with all sorts of bad habits, including smoking and having sex. Yesterday (after 12 years) she went to one of my friends, who became a psychologist, and he told me, vaguely, what happened: at home, there was no love for her. When I asked for more details, he said: "sometimes parents don't grow up and think they have no responsibility to anyone, including their children. They go to parties, drink and get drunk, leave the children alone and without supervision at home (or anywhere else for that matter); in short, they abandon them. When that happens, the child tends to seek love and guidance in other people, who become it's greatest influence in life. That influence, sadly, isn't always good". He told me she was having issues professionally and emotionally due to drugs and a bad relationship, but didn't mentioned anything specific.
I did this drawing inspired in her story and, even though I'm not Christian, I'll go to church and say a prayer for her. If there is a god out there, I hope he helps her.
