That relationship just ended. I’m not ready for it, but he says he doesn’t feel that he can love me. He cares about me deeply but…
He wants to be on his own.
He still wants me to be in his life because we were best friends but while I’m standing still, he will inevitably see other people. I won’t see anyone else because there. Is. NOBODY. Out there for me. I refuse it. He’s my one. That’s it and that’s where I stop. I can’t start over again. I’ll walk through hell to be with him again. He was such a big part of my life for 13 years and he promised me so much only to have that fade into oblivion.
He told me to get help and in turn he would work on our relationship. The moment I get into therapy, he breaks up with me on the morning of the new year.
I’m absolutely reeling. I don’t want this. I don’t want this at all. I want to hate him, but I just can’t. I love him so much.
Hey anon, I've just been reading your post for a while trying to think of the right thing to say but I'm at a loss, I'm just a stranger on the internet so I don't know enough about you, but I'm sorry that you're hurting and hope the best for you.
Do you have other friends that you can go to for support? When you've depended on someone for so long it's difficult to let up and lean on others but it's important to not isolate yourself
I'm so sorry anon that is heartbreaking. I hemmed and hawed on responding because there really isn't anything worthwhile to say beyond 'it sucks'.
But the sooner you can forget about changing his mind the better. You can't make a person feel love for you and he likely lost his passion for you months ago and only just pulled the trigger
in breaking up. I am not saying it will be easy to move on but that if you have any fantasy about changing his mind you have to let it go.
