Grieving teen boy ponders possible crush

Grieving teen boy ponders possible crush

Dear Amy: First of all, I am a 15-year-old guy. Unfortunately, I lost my mother to cancer only six months ago.

I tend to overthink things, and that’s why I’m writing to you.

I am not sure whether I have a crush on this person at my school, or if I am just longing for someone to fill the empty space.

But I think about her often, and look forward to seeing her during the day. What do you think?

— Unsure

Dear Unsure: I’m so sorry for your loss. You are too young to have to navigate through loss and grief, and yet here it is. Life’s journey is full of sometimes very tough challenges, and this is the toughest.
