Hi, thank you for getting in touch with Ask Pat.   

 We are really glad that you reached out to us. You asked us how you get back with your ex-girlfriend and you said that she doesn’t feel safe talking to you anymore. You haven’t given us any detail as to why she doesn’t feel safe however, it is important that you respect her decision not to be in a relationship anymore even though you miss her.  

Break-ups can be really painful because even if they happen for the right reasons, we still miss people because for a time, no matter how short or long, you get used to having that person in your life. Our brain is programmed to connect with people and sends out lots of good hormones when we connect with someone. So, when that goes away, it can feel just as painful as when we physically get hurt. Like physical pain, the pain we feel from break-ups will go away to with time, distracting ourselves in a healthy way like exercising, practicing mindfulness, or carrying out our favourite hobby like reading, gaming our hurling. Relationships can be hard at times, and we have some information and advice here on how to cope when you break up with someone: 

It’s really hard when you feel that your friends don’t understand you or won’t listen to you and we wanted to let you know that Childline is always here to listen.
