Majority of you who read my last post are probably tired of the teenage whining, but I'm still stuck.
I always thought that I was smart and more mature in dealing with being in a relationship. I WAS really good with managing with keeping everything equal. I never had a problem with balancing work/friends/boyfriend/school. But, once he ended things with me (to go back to his ex girlfriend whom he cheated on me with) it was like not only something was missing, I just lost ambition for anything else. I constantly beat myself up for seeming so weak, after investing so much thought into keeping everything balanced to PREVENT this from happening. It just makes me regret everything so much more than you can ever imagine.
I don't know where to move from here. It bothers me so much that he's happy, and I'm so miserable. I mean, I know that sounds odd that it bothers me that the person I'm in love with and have been in love with is happy, but it's because he's not with me. Not happy with me.
Would he even think of me? We spent so long together, it was as easy as breathing, so I thought. This is so heart-wrenching, and nothing feels like it's getting better.
I've never been one to be confident in myself. I've never found myself attractive, I've never been outgoing by any means. I spend most of my time reading and studying and working... it's no wonder he probably got bored. ;\

Ok...Here it goes. For starters, you is the only thing you need to think about. All of this problem goes away as soon as you focus 100% on you. Your ex has no magical control over you. You have to give him PERMISSION to impact the way you think about him. In other words, he can't force you to like him, love him, etc. YOU are the only one who determines what feelings, perceptions, ideas, etc that you have about your "external" reality.
So start by not caring what your ex is doing, thinking, acting, etc. Most guys put up a front after we break up with a girl, that "ah, no big deal" or "so what...I didn't care for her much any way" kind of front. Its to show we are tough and that we are in control of our feelings. So don't fall into his trap. YOU choose what to let impact you, so dont.
So now that you know you are in control of your brain, start putting positive things into it. You say you are smart, so Google "Neuro Linguistic Programming". In a nutshell, if you put positive things into your brain, the result is your personality/behavior will be positive. Likewise, put negative things in, you get negative things out.
So to start with, I want you to write a list of ALL the things you appreciate. Don't leave stone unturned. Then put it on your mirror you look in the morning and read them every day. Then...I want you to write another list...this time list everything you like about yourself. Again, put it on your mirror and read it every morning. Now comes the kicker...I want you to write a list of qualities of the ideal you. Meaning, if you had a way to shape yourself into the ideal person, what would that person look like? What qualities would they have? Write it down in the PRESENT tense, not future tense and...again, place it on the mirror.
This last paper, read it out loud to yourself every morning. It may say something like for example "I am beautiful, all my friends like me, I'm smart, intelligent, helpful. I love learning. I love people. I'm respectful to my teachers, parents, friends of parents..." Say it firmly with passion. BELIEVE in it...heck, you wrote it about yourself, so roll in it. Do this EVERY day. Before you know it, you will be flying in the clouds with energy.
