Self-care refers to the deliberate activities we do in order to meet our physical, emotional, and mental health needs. When we hear about self-care, it's usually in reference to adults. However, let's face it, adolescents are under a tremendous amount of pressure. Make sure to make time to take care of yourself!


Young Love and Friendships

Romantic Relationships

Relationships are an important part of being a teenager and an important part of development.  Teenagers are capable of experiencing a strong bond in their relationships similar to adult relationships.  Often, grown-ups dismiss the power of young romantic relationships basically because these relationships are viewed as immature and inexperienced.  However, these relationships have the potential to grow emotionally and could last a long time.

The Break-up

The "break-up" can be more complex depending on how strong the bond was between the romantic partners, how long they were together, and why the break-up happened.  So, now what?  A break-up can be difficult and can take time to recover from.  There is no magic length of time to heal from a break-up.  However, it can depend on how connected you felt to your boyfriend or girlfriend.  Many teenagers identify themselves through their relationships, and after a break-up they have to rediscover who they are. This process is not easy because you are experiencing a loss in your life; you are grieving.  So it is common to feel anger, sadness, confusion, and jealousy.  Sometimes you feel these emotions all at once.  If it feels too hard to get your life back on track, remember it is important to talk to someone you trust and get some help.
