Break from dating and relationships
So, maybe wait a while before getting ‘Life’s a Bitch’ inked on your thigh.We know; you’ve spent months or even years knowing almost every detail of your partner’s life and now, nothing. But whatever you do, try to resist the temptation to keep a foothold in their life by checking up on them.You may also think that the police and other adults won’t take you seriously.
Even though teen and 20-something relationships may be different from adult ones, young people do experience the same types of physical, sexual, verbal and emotional abuse that adults do.
Give yourself time to recover and then, when you’re ready, you can start looking for love again. We all know at least one person who’s had a break-up makeover.
Sometimes it works, but usually cutting off your long blonde locks and dying your new crop black just to show you’re a ‘new’ person becomes something you regret.
If it’s because you feel guilty, then all you’re doing is leading them on.
And if it’s because you think you have a chance of getting back together then you’re just setting yourself up for more hurt.
You need to grieve the loss of the relationship – if you don’t you’ll find it even harder to move on.
