Like when you are in high school and you break up with someone or get dump and adults tell you to "get over it" or " you weren't in love anyways" but even if someone isn't in love that doesn't make all of those hurt feelings non exsistent. It doesn't make those feelings magically go away. And if it isn't love why do I feel this way? Like when I went through a heart break last year it was Horrible. I couldn't sleep for days, i tried to eat but food just felt like matter in my mouth, my voice shoke when I spoke, If i thought about him too much I could make myself and literally Vomit. I had cold sweats at night, I had nightmares and everything felt like complete devastation. I cannot stretch heaviness of that word. DEVASTATION. why don't adults take teenage heartbreak seriously it means something it's not like we just cry for nothing. We cry because it hurts.
If it isn't love- New Edition.

It's not fair to you, but I think that adults dismiss your angst because we see your age and how much more life you will get to experience in the coming years. AND we have been through heartbreaks and then the recovery periods. The heartbreak of past relationships kind of fades away.
For example, when I broke up with my first boyfriend (I was 23), I felt sick, couldn't stop crying for the first 3 days, would cry when I saw my bosses wedding picture in his office, and generally felt like shit every time I drove past his part of down. I was miserable.
Now, looking back I kind of laugh at how dramatic I was, and feel relief that I didn't settle for him... I have had many more compatible and emotionally powerful relationships, and I don't remember the actual feelings of that pain, I just remember how I responded.
But hopefully you're feeling better now... I get it!3
