Going through a breakup is never easy, whether you're 16 years old, 20 years old or 30 years old. It's always the same emotions that we have to deal with even though we think we have it all figured out as we get older.
We all deal with the denial, the sadness and the anger when you've just ended a serious relationship. But once you get through all of that and come out the other side you realize that that experience probably taught you something and you can finally accept the breakup and move on to bigger and better things.
It's not always easy getting there, but eventually we do! This process is pretty universal no matter the age, but there are some big differences between when we breakup in high school and when we breakup in university.
In the next few pages we'll go through the differences in how the breakup goes, how you feel after the breakup, coping with the breakup, starting to move on, and finally finding a new relationship.
