Unhappy i dont know what to do... - May 5th 2010, 04:48 AM

this is my first post. I am 17, and just got out of a long lasting relationship with my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years. I have been crying every night, and feel so sad all the time. There is this feeling i get deep inside of me, and it wont go away. I love my ex soo much, but he has feelings for some other girl which was the cause of our break up. I hurt, and want to relieve the pain... ive been thinking of cutting... i hope i wont, im not that type of person. but the way im going... it wont be long. I have a great family, good grades, but this feeling is taking over my life. I want to stop hurting... any advice for me?

I remember that feeling all too well. It wasn't a 2 1/2 year relationship, but it hurt all the same. The pain will go away. Don't do anything you will regret. It sounds like you have a great life. Love is very complicated, I know. But you will get over it. A guy that isn't devoted to you does not deserve you at all. Plus, you are only 17. You have plenty of time and there are a lot more guys out there. Who knows? There may be one out there that is interested in you. Just forget about your ex. You don't need him. If he hurt you, then he isn't worth it. Find some inspirational music to help you get through it. Or do something you enjoy and then you will end up feeling better. Trust me, I have been down that road a few times and I know my way around.

PM me if you ever want to talk.

I can't imagine how you're feeling right now. It must be terrible, but you know what? There are lots of people here to talk to so you can let everything out without resorting to harming yourself You are SO much stronger than that!! Talk to us, we want to help. You don't need to hurt yourself, especially not over one guy. You are 17 and you have TONS of time to find someone else and be happy! Things can only get better from here

Time. Only time can heal. The pain will be great, but when you feel like crying, cry away. As much as you want, cry. Because the pain is not good to hold in. BUT you have to give yourself time and just hold on and go on with life. Its not easy, but you have to give yourself time.

I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.

I felt the same way about a girl I never even got together with. After the situation blew out of control, I held onto what happened for two years. It still hurts me sometimes. But now I am looking for someone, and most likely this someone will be even better than that girl. You will find what you are looking for, I know because I still believe I will. It is harder to get over because you developed a close emotional bond to him. But you can and will get through it.

hi, you said that you were thinking about cutting yourself so I'll give you the link to the self-harm alternatives thread on here. It has loads of things that you can do instead of cutting yourself, so it might be helpful in stopping yourself from cutting. http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/

Also, as hard as it is, the pain of the break-up will fade. I've been through it before, many other people on this site have been through tough break-up's and we're all here to help you through it.

Good luck
Ella x
