I can’t focus on anything

I am in Class XII. I have been drawn to my childhood friend for five years now. But I have not the courage to let her know how I feel about her. I thought she was interested in me too. But, recently I came to know from her that she has a boyfriend. She wants to be my friend and not girlfriend. I’m depressed now. I can’t focus on anything. Please help me.

Getting attracted to others is natural. It can hurt when a relationship does not turn out to be what we want it to be. At this stage, it is very important to first give yourself time to accept the situation. Find ways to keep yourself occupied and distracted with positive things. Life is a roller-coaster of events and people. You have the choice of being her friend. Give yourself time to think about this before you decide. Work towards your long-term goals.
