Today, I realised I've been depressed about my recent break up for longer than the relationship even lasted. FML

fleckney26 tells us more.

Op here, first of all, thanks for the support. Mostly. It's not actual depression, just feeling rather miserable about it all, especially as many of my friends are all in happy relationships that I see every day. We dated for just over three months, and I guess the main reason I'm still upset is that she was my first proper girlfriend, first kiss, and at the risk of sounding a bit too pathetic, my first love. To those saying that I should get out and find a hobby, I do. I play the French horn in and out of school, and I'm in the Air Training Corps, which takes up nearly all my free time. The only problem is, she does exactly the same, so I still see her every day and we regularly have camps together, so it's hard to avoid her. Saying that, we are still friends, and the break up was very calm, so there are no hard feeling between us. Anyway, sorry for the long comment, and thanks for getting this posted!

My cheese burger lasted 5 min. My fat lasted 5 months. That's just how things work.

It obviously isn't worth being upset about just pick yourself up and move on :)

I was in the exact same boat. You will feel better soon now that you have had that realization.

Happens to the best of us, OP. Take care of yourself, find comfort in people who matter, and live life.

Talk to someone OP. It'll help you get over it. Good luck!

How the fk is this a thumbs down...

No shit hey! There was a rash of thumbs down yesterday for some reason

People go running to a therapist for everything these days. It's a breakup. People break up all the time, and the majority of people move on instead of feeling sorry for themselves. Whining to someone else won't help her; she needs to stop dwelling on the past and get on with her life.

Who said anything about a therapist? #3 never suggested that "someone" should be a professional. And sometimes talking to a friend can give you comfort and perspective. I'd say #3 gave sound advice.

Everyone copes with breakups differently . Keep your chin up and stay positive OP!

Why can't I have a huge cheeseburger that lasts five months and my fat only last 5 minutes? No fair, biology.
