it's been several months since my girlfriend of a year and a half and I broke up. i only have a few months before i graduate high school. i'm lucky that im very busy with activities and things in and out of school, but occasionally i find myself feeling really depressed and im not really sure how to make things better for myself. i feel really unsure of who i am and find myself questioning whether the reason my relationship ended was because of me. i guess after going through my first relationship ending, i don't feel a lot of self esteem, and while i do have good friends and family, i sometimes feel very alone. I'm worried that thinking this way will ruin my experiences as i head off to college, but also affect the way I am now. i was just wondering if you have any ideas about how i can feel better. thanks.

Hey 931... I replied to a few of your posts earlier... all I can think to suggest is that time is what you need. One and a half years is a long time when you are young... from what you describe and given it has lasted a few months, it might be worthwhile going to a counsellor to see if they can give you some strategies and get to the bottom of what's really going on. I'm sorry i couldn't be of more help
