I want to call it quits but...

Dear Auntie Betty, I am a 13-year-old girl who is dating a boy in SHS Three. I gave him all my heart but now I want to forget about him but I can’t. What should I do? I need your help.

Bernice, Accra.

Dear Bernice, I am glad that you have realised that what you are doing is wrong and would want to change for the better. In life, we sometimes make bad choices or decisions but it is always good that once we realise it, we stop.

Bernice I am sure you know that you are too young to be in such a relationship so it is better to stop it now that you realise it is not the best thing for you. You can forget him if you want to since you know that is not helping you. Besides, as a child you should always do only things you can comfortably tell your parents about. I bet you can’t tell your mum or dad that you are in such a relationship. Don’t rush; there is time for everything.

 You have to determine not to get in touch with him and follow through with it if he tries to reach you do not see him and surround yourself with your female friends who are not in any relationship to help you succeed. All the best.
