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.

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.
