My ex and I were together for almost two years ago. We've been through a lot. We had a son together that passed away recently. There was a lot of stress for me when he cheated on me, started selling drugs and became verbally abusive towards me when I tried to get him off drugs. He was also an asshole to my son...
It's been a month since we broke up and he's already gotten two girlfriends (he dumped the other last week). I am so jealous that he can move on so easily after all we've been through. I am jealous that he is happy. It's just not fair that he can be over me after what we've been through (please don't comment that I'm a stupid teen to think that my relationship was a fairtytale).
I also feel broken inside. I try to flirt with other guys when they flirt with me but I feel absolutely nothing. I want to get over my ex. I am but I don't know why it's so hard for me to feel anything for guys. I know I'm not ready and I know that it's wrong to force myself to get into a relationship so quickly, but I want to feel happy and loved again.
I've been sad without my ex and my son.
My ex was terrible. He was never there for my son and I. He didn't even love my son. I hate that I miss him. I want to be completely over him. I don't even want to be jealous that he has a new girl. I just want to feel unbroken. Any advice.

Hello. This is a very sad story, and I'm sorry that you have been going through these rough times. Are you really just 16? If so, then my heart really goes out to you. It would be hard for even me at 35 to go through losing a son, and a relationship. I'm not sure I would've been able to handle all of that pain at such a young age.
That said, the jealousy you're feeling is totally normal. You're feeling tremendous loss in your life, and to you, it seems as though he is not. And let's be honest, he is the one other person in this world that should be identifying with and feeling the same pain as you through all of this. Of course it hurts that it appears he isn't.
How old is he? How did your son pass away? How old was your son?1
