Unfortunately the truth is that there is no easy way to get over someone. When you care about someone so much its hard to listen to others when they say you deserve better, its hard to listen to yourself sometimes too. My ex broke up with me after 2 years when I was 18 because he was in love with his ex-girlfriend. He was my first love and I was completely heart broken. I tried staying friends with him but it was really hard, emotionally. I think what helped the most is talking to my friends and my mom, although it was hard to hear (and I refused to believe them) they said I was strong, beautiful, deserve better, and he's an idiot. I made plans with my friends to hang out..I made sure I was doing something fun everyday just to get my mind off of things. I kept pushing myself to believe what they told me, and although I went through my phases of missing him, hating him and so on....I told myself that he will always be a part of my life and I wish him all the best. I never believed I would care about anyone else as much a I did him...however I am now 23 and in a happy relationship for the past 4 years with someone else. It's never easy but you have to stay strong and believe in yourself.
