my girlfriend left me

Postby LucasWuts » Fri Oct 12, 2018 10:37 am

My girlfriend broke up with me and I feel terrible. I'm upset and depressed. It feels like I will never love anyone. So, I used some marijuana to ease my suffering. It helps... a little bit. But later, I googled some info and learned that marijuana can worsen depression as well. I read on VapingDaily that there could be even some side effects. I don't know how to deal with it. It makes me confused..
Any advice?

Research, along with age old wisdom, is the sooner a person can acknowledge and then reengage in other pursuits of equal or greater perceived purpose, the sooner they recover. It is the “get back on the horse” adage, but in the moment that usually falls short of being helpful. It is easy to say and not nearly as easy to actually execute when your dealing with pain.

Regardless, that is the recipe and it follows a similar path to stages of grief. You move forward by going through the stages and then resuming life. How long it takes to move through each stage will vary based on your willingness to take on each stage and move past it.
