Breakup Advice

September 24, 2009
By Anonymous

After those amazing relationships end, you have to ask yourself how things will continue. If you broke up with your partner, you must either be unhappy with them, mad at them, tired of them, or some other circumstance. So, if it is you who breaks up with the other, stop and think. As one single person, you don't have any idea what the other might go through. One moment to you is completely different that that of another. For example, you might go on a date and have the time of your life, oblivious to that fact that the one you care for is about to slit their wrists in boredom.
Just and example.
But that is something that you can relate to a breakup. You might think that things are better off without the other. They might be tripping and falling behind you, trying to catch up and get you back. It happens a lot, and these breakups are the worst. I myself went through one. And I've scraped my knees so much over these past to years tripping and falling after her(yes, two years. She's so beautiful I can't stop thinking about her). I've found out the the first and most important thing you can do to stay out of those horrible, bad break ups, is to forget. Easier said then done, right? Well, there is only one way to completely get over such a thing. Overwrite the memories that the two of you shared. Now, people call this a rebound, but isn't every boyfriend/girlfriend after the first a rebound? You must make better memories with this person. Have a greater time, and think about the new things you share rather then all the things you used to share with the other. Take it from me, with time, almost everything is mendable.

First of all, i would like to say that I love everything you have written, i do enjoy reading what you write becasue it provokes thought and urges you to explore your own thoughts, second, i have considered puting some of my pieces on this website, but I am worried about someone stealing my writing or my idea, should I be concerned, or are there things that TeenInk does to prevent that? Or an I just paranoid? I would geatly appriciate a reply, from anyone :] Thankyou and good job!

Good advice. I've been through some horrible break ups too. One I never quite understood is when my boyfriend of 1 week broke up with me for no reason. Completely out of the blue! He never explained to me why he broke up with me. I was heart broken. I'm better now cuz it's been like 6 months, but I still wonder why he broke up with me.

My personal favorite quote would have to be; "Don't judge a book by its cover."

That is so true, but how do you break up with someone without breaking them?

That is why I have vowed not to get involved with boys until after high school. i have just seen to many friendships ruined because of relationships.

Man, I've been through the exact same thing. I would know that it sucks. I won't do that again.

Just make sure you don't 'rebound' with the one one you're broken up with....like I did. OOPS. Then he broke up with me....again.
