Answer
Heya,

First off, don't stress!  I know how hard things can seem in high school, but it all passes.  I know it's pretty cliche to just say give it time, but honestly it's 100% true.  I had a terrible heartbreak in my first year of University, and I even decided to leave the country and go on exchange at the end of the year to get away.  I was so devastated for a couple of weeks, but slowly things got better and eventually I just completely stopped thinking about it.

I know it's hard, but you'll get through everything.  It's going to seem so trivial a year down the line.  Just keep positive thoughts and don't let it overwhelm you.  You're a lot stronger than you realize =)

Just give it time.  You're going to get through this =)

I began this profile in 2007 after a bad breakup with my girlfriend at the time. I was a junior in high school then and the breakup left me pretty heartbroken. I found a reprieve in offering advice to others experiencing similar high school traumas and I began writing here. Almost eight years later and I am still a part of AllExperts. Since then I have gone to university, moved to China, begun working an actual job, and experienced many more dramas. I have had wonderful friends who have supported me through all of it, and I am happy to give back whatever I can. Feel free to send me a private or public message and I will respond as soon as I can =)
