Going Through A Break UpRelationshipsGoing Through A Break Up<p>​<span>I’ve been going through a break up. It’s affected me for a couple of months and I feel like many things have been meaningless and I don’t feel like myself. I feel guilty for it ending I don’t know how to move on. </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClassDA890A75AC054CE192EE826105FEECED"><p>​We're happy to hear from you, and so good to see you reaching out for support with what sounds like a difficult breakup. Breakups can be rough and your decision to let us know how you've been feeling through it shows strength. Now, more than ever, it may be important to prioritize your well-being, and we'd be glad to talk through what some of that self-care may look like.</p><p>Your feelings of stress, guilt and frustration are valid. When a relationship ends, it's a loss, and when we lose someone important to us, we may go through the grief process, which may include stages of wanting the relationship back, guilt, depression, anger and frustration, and eventually….acceptance. We can also go back and forth through feeling frustrated, guilty, and depressed. We'd like to share these tips from our website, YLYV.org, which you may find helpful:<br></p><p><a href="/Pages/tip-break-ups.aspx?Topic=Break%20Ups">Breaking Up</a></p><p><a href="/Pages/4-Ways-To-Ease-Grief.aspx?Topic=Break%20Ups">4 Ways to Ease Grief</a></p><p>Other things going on in your life may be adding to your stress, too, which is why focusing on things that are good for you as well as things you've enjoyed doing on your own in the past to feel good can be key. What are some of those things? It may be good to make sure you do at least one of those things (if not more), each day. Reaching out for support like you're doing here is excellent self-care. Have you talked about your feelings with anyone else…a friend, family member or other supportive person? These tips may give you some additional ideas:<br></p><p><a href="/Pages/tip-9-steps-to-taking-care-of-yourself.aspx?Topic=Taking%20Care%20of%20You">Taking Care of Yourself</a><br></p><p><a href="/Pages/tip-emotional-health-checklist.aspx?Topic=Taking%20Care%20of%20You">Emotional Health Checklist</a></p><p>​You're definitely not alone in this.
