Stories I don't like to hear about.

A dear friend shared a story with me about a girl who is dealing with a horrible break up. She doesn’t want to attend school, church, or go out with her friends. So often our youth struggle with self esteem after a break up. They feel used like a piece trash only thinking the garage man will want them.

As an author writing about teenagers and self esteem I think of parents like myself and wonder if we are totally aware of the rejection our youth are dealing with. To express to a teenager they are wanted and value is important, but the real key to success is when they honestly believe it too.

A teen guide; to getting over a break up.

Elizabeth could of really used these steps with the breakup with Paul. I have noticed over the years several youth who have struggled like Elizabeth did. It breaks my heart to watch others live in pain over the rejection from a boyfriend or girlfriend.
