He broke things off and I’m having a very hard time trying to get back to my normal life but he’s always on my mind every second of the day. I still love him.  </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClassE07BE5DF9DAD40538DE1994E301BA857"><p>​It sounds like you really cared for this guy. Sometimes when a relationship ends, it is not because of something that one person did or did not do. It could simply be bad timing. It could be that one person is not ready to be in an exclusive relationship and the responsibilities that come along with it. It could be that one person is having his/her own problems and issues that need to be resolved.<br></p><p>Having him on your mind all of the time or trying to figure out how to get back to a normal life are hard for anyone after a breakup – he and you together WAS your normal. Now you have extra time to spare, you lose that “go to" person, you  might miss certain things that come with having a boyfriend such as a late night call, holding hands, or catching a movie together. It will take time to find your new norm. It gives you time to process through what happened. If there are days when this starts to interfere with your daily functioning, you will need to probably tell yourself “OK 5 more minutes on this and then I need to hit the books" or “OK I need to go for a walk or go help with dinner".  <br></p><p>The best thing that you can do for yourself is to make sure you spend your time taking care of YOU now. This is the time when you need to be with your friends. This is the time when you need to ask yourself how you can find some happiness from within. Busy yourself with a hobby that you have not had time for lately. Plan an outing with others. Get some exercise. Exercise will release endorphins from your brain and give you some emotional relief. Happiness will come back if you invite it back. Make a list of what makes you happy. Make it a point to do some of those things this week.</p><p>It probably feels like you are going to be stuck in these thoughts forever, but time is a big healer. Call in anytime if you need to talk through this more. Ok? A crisis counselor will be more than happy to talk with you.<br></p><p>Laura, Crisis Counselor<br></p></div>17
