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!
