Without him I’m so depressed

I was in a relationship with a guy for the past six months but I broke up from him because I learnt he didn’t like me and had proposed to someone else. Today, without him I am so depressed. How can I deal with this heartbreak? Should I take revenge on him and make him realize his mistake by teaching him a lesson or just leave the situation as it is?

Dear Muskan, at the age of 14 you lack experience and knowledge about what to do or not to do in your relationships, particularly regarding boys and girls. You broke up with that boy on the suspicion that he does not like you and had proposed to someone else. Now, without him you are “so depressed”, unable to deal with the “heartbreak”. Taking revenge on him by “teaching him a lesson” will make things worse. You will end up feeling guilty and sad. Leave the situation as it is and learn to be patient and respectful of other people’s feelings and choices.
