Subject: RE: Breaking up is hard to do
Yup, when you're young you can pick yourself up, dust yourself down and it gets better.

When you're older and let down by a longstanding partner, it can be harder, and take longer to get over, as Sinsull says, like a bereavement.

And remember, there's a difference between feeling sad and angry (which are justifiable emotions if it just hasn't worked, or someone has let you down) and feeling that it's your fault, which leads to low esteem and depression - not necessarily justified, and generally destructive!

Best of luck.
