    My boyfriend and i have been fighting alot recently, and last night we talked about how we both have to much going on to deal with the stress of an unhealthy relationship. Later on we got to talking, and he is in college and im in high school, with almost a 4 year difference, and he told me that im not emtoionally mature and everytime something comes up, as in an argument, i wont ever let it go and i keep telling my story a hundred times before it finally ends into a huge fight. He made me really think through alot of things, and he was right.. im not mature. After reading this i realized im just like that girl who wouldnt drop the fact that the girl took her pencil. Im working really hard on acting my age and letting things go. I dont want to lose a relationship because im not mature. Thank you for writing this article, it helped me see what I need to work on!

    Hi Alexis,

    Thanks for commenting, and thanks for sharing your story. Letting go is a hard skill to develop, but one of the most useful things you can do to lower conflict and stress (and not just in relationships!) If you are figuring this out in high school you are way ahead of many, many people I have come across. 🙂 I’m glad you found the article helpful!
