If you think your teen’s first crush is going to make you nervous wait until their first heart break. Uhhhh.
After you calm down realizing that this person hurt your baby, you can put the focus on your teen’s heart break instead of your feelings of rejection because your teen got dumped. Disorientation, difficulty concentrating, feelings of worthlessness and no appetite seem to be the best way to handle heart break. If you have a handful of really great break up songs your teen is on their way…
There’s nothing better than the rebuild that occurs after heartbreak. It’s like Superman’s suit that repels the bullet and feeling all over in disbelief as your teen realizes they’re okay. This is the disbelief of them realizing that they survived and they’re going to be okay.
This knowledge is what heals.
It serves to help your teen’s heart heal stronger, but not in a callused way, but in a way that allows them to live to love again only smarter, better.
