Please pray for our 18 year old daughter to accept the ending of a very painful breakup. Her boyfriend of seven months decided to end the relationship and she can't seem to move on. She has a strong history of depression, anxiety, temptation and threat of self harm. She has been hospitalized twice in the last 2 years due to these issues. She leaves for college next Saturday and mentally is at the point that she can not move forward in life due to this intense pain. She lacks the ability to avoid social media therefore uses it to create drama, threatening self harm and overall attention seeking behavior. She has a pattern of not being able to let go of relationships once they end. She always blames herself and therefore will continue to try and make amends. She is in counseling and has been for the last few years. She loses friends because she has predictable behavior and expects others to continually pity her. My husband is a good father but lacks the patience, compassion and empathy to support her. This causes friction in our relationship and I find myself depressed and tearful alongside our daughter. Please pray that God will get through to her to feel his presence, his strength, his grace, his comfort, his glory as he remains by her side. May God bless you for your prayers.
