Dealing with a break up



New member
Mar 1, 2015
Im 18, someone broke up with me over a year ago now but I'm still completely distraught over it. I am taking antidepressants but I just dont' feel any better, i'm trying so hard but I feel confused the whole time, and I don't know how much longer I can go on like this. Feel like im never good enough. How do I get over him, I just don't know what to do.

Hi and :welcome: to the forum.

A break up is sometimes so much harder isn't it. It took me at least two and a half years to get over my ex and even now it hurts when he gets some sort of good thing happen to him as he treated me so badly and is the one living a happy life with a fiance and a baby on the way.


Your heart needs time to grieve the relationship, sometimes it is easier sometimes it is harder. Have you got anything around to remind you of him, like processions? Do you still talk or see him now?

Having someone still in your life also makes it harder because there will always be something about him that you care about. You can't fix your heart with a click of a finger.

You are good enough and one day, when you are older you will see that.

You are not the only one. Bitterness is my middle name.

anyway OP, just go with the flow as much as you can. I'm old fart but time will heal and you will get over it................... maybe try and find new friends, of both sexes and start to rebuild your social life, slowly will do it. maybe try new hobbies, sports ? all these things will help if you can make the effort.

good luck.
