He walked out of my life

After five years of relationship, my boyfriend walked out of my life and asked me to move on. He said I was immature and that he had begun falling for his best friend! It’s too hard for me to accept this and I don’t know how to move on. Please help.

Dear Sanjukta, you began a relationship with a boy at the tender age of 12 when you did not have any experience of such relationships. Now you are 17 and struggling to understand why your boyfriend walked out of your life. You do not mention the age of your boyfriend nor the reasons why he said you were “immature”. You have to introspect and try to find out what went wrong in this relationship and avoid making the same mistakes in the future. Learning from past mistakes will help you to move on successfully with your life.
