Broken Hearts

First love. Together for over 3 years, my daughter and her boyfriend are now going their separate ways.

First love. Together for over 3 years, my daughter and her boyfriend are now going their separate ways.

Oy. A broken heart.

Give me backs to rub while kids are sick, little knees to apply Band-Aids to, imagined boo-boos to kiss, over my child’s heartache any day. The sting of rejection and the loss of love can’t be helped by Mom, no matter how much Mom wishes it could.

Although my 18yo felt the impending doom looming for a while, the pain she feels after her boyfriend of 3 1/2 years broke up with her is huge. They had been together since she was in grade 9. He is a great guy, and we will miss him. Our family grew to love him over the past few years.

Less than two weeks before prom, and right before exams, through tears he told her that he would not be able to handle her being so far away in September and that it would be better for them both if he ended it now. This won’t be easy for either of them.

Lump in throat.

Although full of opinions, I often find myself nodding and smiling. Don't you? Doesn't mean I agree. I'm just being polite.

  1. 😦 I’m sorry. What a tragic love story. I hope they are able to remain friends. They will both go on to do great things and be great people.

  2. It sounds like a positive relationship throughout. I don’t look forward to the days of broken hearts.

    • It was. They started out as friends, so their relationship was based on respect. I hope they can find their friendship again, once they’ve healed a bit. It’s not easy to parent through heartbreak, all I could say is that I knew how much it hurt. So happy she’s smiling again.

  3. I can’t even imagine. I know I’ll be needing your shoulder when it’s my turn.
