My daughters boyfriend of 3 years broke up with her whilst I was on an overseas trip. I am home now and she seems to be coping better than me. I felt helpless when it happened as I was overseas and not able to get home to comfort her. By the time I was home she seems to be ok. The problem I have is that I'm not coping well at all. I am so angry with him for hurting her. I just want to punch him. I spent the last two weeks of my trip away fretting over her, wondering what went on. They had been together 3 years and he turned 18 in July. He had always. Een very attentive, he bought her a diamond commitment ring . Once he turned 18 he started going to casino and clubs and seemed bored when with my daughter. I was worried but my overseas trip had been booked and I couldn't get out of it. Please can anyone tell me why I am feeling so hurt by this boy. I feel like a freak as its her he broke up with not me, so why am I so effected by this. I go from feeling very angry to feeling let down and hurt. I feel guilty that I feel this way I cannot imagine how upset my daughter has been, and I feel guilty that I wasnt home when she needed me . Now I am home she doesn't want to talk about it as she has already had 4 weeks to think about it and seems to be coping quite well, it's me that's the wreck and I feel so stupid. Has anyone else experienced this?
