how do i deal with my feelings of abandonment from my boyfriend
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
how do i deal with my feelings of abandonment from my boyfriend and my new found jelousy issues. i love my boyfriend but lately i dont know how to feel the way i should, or even how i should feel.
You need to be able to talk with your boyfriend.
You can't deal with your feelings by yourself because he is so much a part of your life. Try to introduce your feelings gently into your conversations and see if the discussion helps. See if he can understand how his behavior is hurting you. I am sure he doesn't want to hurt you.
I hope this isn't true, but he may be going through a stage where he needs some space to try out new things. This would put a great strain on your relationship.
Jealousy is not a good thing for you two. It makes him pull away from you and it also hurts you. Try to attack the jealous feelings whenever they arise and eventually those feelings will give up once they realize they can't hurt you anymore.
If things get too bad for you please see your school psychologist.
Hope things turn out ok for you!
