I’m gonna use this as an example. When girls have sex with a guy, they release a special hormone that literally makes us become attached almost. Guys don’t have this hormone which makes it so much easier for them to go from girl to girl. It’s so hard for us to let go after you become sexually involved and realize that there are way better guys out there. Either that, or some girls just don’t think through situations and are with the completely wrong guy and just want to believe that they’ll treat them right, even though they probably never will. It’s not an easy situation sometimes.
No, I could never think that something like that is ‘stupid’. I do believe that there are other ways to cope than self harm but suicidal thoughts are very hard to get over. Sometimes, you just can’t control them. Depression works in awful ways and it almost feels like it’s taking over your body. I feel for everyone out there who is having trouble with this right now. <3
Don’t feel pathetic. Take it one day at a time and never give up until you reach your goals. You don’t need a boyfriend to be happy and sometimes, friends just don’t exist. It’s happened to me before. Focus on your studies and get what you need done. I believe in you.
If he seriously even thinks about lying about his health and saying something like that to you, I don’t think you two should be together. That’s absolutely uncalled for. I honestly don’t know what to tell you cause he actually may be telling the truth. Maybe ask him some further in depth questions about it and see what he says and if he can answer them.
