It does get better. It doesn’t happen overnight. You won’t always be dependent on your parents. It almost never happens that a person is able to connect with a life partner without some interruptions in the process. Can you stay in touch, even if not dating?
Hi WellWellWell and welcome to HeartSupport. Thank you for sharing your feelings.
I’m sorry you have had to end your relationship. It can be very distressing not being able to be with the one person who makes you feel special. What is her mother’s objection to the relationship, and might this change in time?
Although it is not the same, can you still communicate with her as friends for the time being?
It does get better. The rawness you feel right now will lessen over time and become easier to bear. Try and hold on to the fact that this only needs to be a temporary break. Once you are no longer dependent on parents, nothing stops you from being together again.
Please remember that you are always welcome at HeartSupport.
I can hear how much you are struggling right now and its so sad to hear, I am truly sorry that you are in this situation, that you are hurting so much and there doesnt appear to be a way to fix this relationship.
You are grieving right now, even though you still have a friend, you are grieving the loss of what you had with her and what you hoped it would be which is completely understandable under the circumstances and the fact that neither of you have done anything wrong.
I would love to tell you these feeling pass overnight but of course they don’t, just like any form of grief it takes time and you go through stages and of course you are still in touch with this girl which is either going to make things easier or harder (that is something you will find out in time) but and this is the good news however dreadful you feel right now, yes it does get better, please just give yourself some grace, be kind to yourself, time heals all wounds including the ones of the heart… Best of luck friend. x
I appreciate how raw your emotions are right now; the end of a relationship is complicated. I’m so sorry you are suffering; my heart goes out to you. You will need to grieve the loss, and the pain will lessen with time.
