Bad Break Up

I just went through a really bad break up and I feel sad all the time. What can I do to feel like myself again?

Forget that girl/guy because she/he isn’t worth it. Just go find a new better girl/guy.

Friends and family definitely help. They help you get your mind off things and help you get back on your feet again. Don’t be afraid to reach out.

Spend time with friends. The worst thing you can do is try to get past a break-up by yourself. Partake in activities that draw your attention away from memories of your relationship. In time, and with support, you should start to feel better.

Maybe join a new activity or focus on something fun. Only time will make you feel like yourself again.

Tell yourself that you don’t need that guy/girl. I know it’s easier said than done, but things just seem terrible at first. It really will get better. Think about how much more time you’ll have for yourself! But the first step is saying goodbye. “It’s not the end, but a new beginning”

Sometimes talking to others can be a great solution to your problem. Being around friends can help lighten your mood.

Talk to friends, hang with them, or join a school club.
