Getting Over Your First Breakup

Break­ing up can be hard at any age. When you’re young and expe­ri­ence it for the very first time, it can be espe­cial­ly chal­leng­ing. It feels like the worst thing that has ever hap­pened to you. Here are some tips on get­ting over your first breakup.

1. Don’t for­get about your friends. They are there for a rea­son. After going through a breakup, there is absolute­ly no rea­son for you to sit at home alone cry­ing. Get­ting out, hav­ing fun with friends, and enjoy­ing enter­tain­ment through movies or oth­er activ­i­ties will help ensure that you get over your ex-boyfriend or girl­friend quick­er. The most impor­tant thing to remem­ber is that you should be around oth­er peo­ple, rather than just by your­self.

2. Stay involved in sports and hob­bies. Going through a breakup may seem like a rea­son for your life to stop. Per­haps you may need a day off, but this doesn’t mean that you should quit any clubs that you may be a part of. Play­ing a cer­tain sport can help keep you occu­pied. You will also be around team­mates who care about you, which means that you are more like­ly to have fun than sit at home and feel sor­ry for your­self.

3. Remem­ber that there are oth­er fish in the sea. It may not feel like it right now, but plen­ty of oth­er boys and girls are going to take inter­est in you in the future. One way to feel bet­ter about your­self may be to think about some of the peo­ple who have liked you in the past, or any who you know like you right now. Even­tu­al­ly, you are going to find some­one who is real­ly worth your time. You will look back on this breakup and think about how sil­ly it was for you to feel the way that you do right now.

4. Seek help if you need it. There are many peo­ple who become very depressed when they go through a breakup. This is incred­i­bly com­mon for teenagers. The rea­son is because you often have so much pain, and you are not quite sure what to do with it, as this is not some­thing that you have gone through before. If you are feel­ing unusu­al­ly depressed, it is impor­tant to talk to a par­ent or guid­ance coun­selor. Seek­ing ther­a­py may not seem like some­thing that you real­ly want to do, but it can be a great way to help you deal with the pain that you are going through at the moment.

One of the hard­est things that you will ever have to deal with dur­ing your teen life is going through a first breakup. Keep in mind that every­thing hap­pens for a rea­son. While you may not nec­es­sar­i­ly feel like it right now, it is impor­tant to know that rela­tion­ships do not always work out because there is some­one who is much more suit­able for you out there. The idea of get­ting over your ex-boyfriend or ex-girl­friend right now may seem impos­si­ble, but you will in time.
