Sometimes a breakup is mutual and easy like you've drifted from one type of relationship to another.
For others, though, breakups can feel like your world has been turned upside down and the air becomes so thick it is hard to breathe. Emotional pain is uncomfortable for those around you, mostly because they don't want to see you hurt.
Allowing yourself to feel the pain by crying, journaling, praying, etc.
gives you the opportunity to explore parts of yourself and know what you are handing over to God as you go from heartache to moving on.
So, what if you are one of those Christian teens in the middle of a heart-wrenching, stop-the-presses breakups? So, they try to cheer you up and do things for you to make you feel better.
How do you get over something when you feel like the pain will never go away? Sometimes those actions make you think you shouldn't be feeling pain or sadness for the loss of your relationship.
As you explore why you feel sad and you understand that it's okay to feel loss, you need to also be handing over the breakup to God to help ease all the bad feelings you have. Sometimes it is easier to hold onto feelings for your ex or anger than to move forward.
It shows how Christ loved the church and laid down His life for her. No one besides the Lord will come before the person you are going to marry. You have to say no to everyone else when it comes to your spouse. Do you listen to His conviction or do you do what you want to do? Run to Christ and whoever is keeping up with you introduce yourself. God will replace the person He has taken away with someone better. You must keep your eyes on Christ and pray for His peace and comfort when you are single because you will kill yourself if you are constantly thinking about it. Sometimes God uses singleness to drive you in prayer. Every day the pain will lessen bit by bit until you're really over the relationship.
