I Am Going Through a Break-up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 336 People

    We completely ended it about 3 weeks ago,

    or more. I am so numb that I even ignored the date and everything related, so I can't give an exact measure of time. Truly, it feels like this relationship was over a very long time ago maybe months or over a year, who knows. I think the worst thing you could do to another...

    So my bright side. In my history,

    some of the best times in my life were the post break up eras of my life. That desperation I felt to get over the pain inspired me to get out and live. The people I met , the experiences I sought and opened for me in the wake of me finally opening my eyes to the world outside of...

    I'm having a hard time adjusting.

    One day we're together and the next day we're not. I miss you so much and I hate myself for even caring.

    I just discovered my

    now ex is talking to and possibly slept with a 17 year old. And he's 23. I guess things have truly been over since last Thursday. And right away he started talking to this chick ...... I am now horribly disgusted by him sleeping with a minor. 100% convinces me not to go back. He...

    I hate break ups. My mind emotions are just non

    existent right now, I don't know if I'm just suppressing my feelings or have none anymore. I just don't even know how to feel right now. I feel sad, mad, hurt, resentful, pissed off at once. I hate break ups.

    since I was 15. We were married a little under 2 years ago. I was very happy for the first two years or so of our relationship. Since then we've had our ups and downs. He kept telling me things would get better and I always believed him. Then we got married. Since then things...

    When I met her, I was hurled suddenly into

    The bad part about breaking up with someone is

    that they're a chapter of your life that you're leaving behind, all is said and done, there's no other way than to leave them behind, unless it's a friend that you're breaking up with.. then the story becomes a little more.. complex.. you see, when you're breaking up with a...

    The last straw has been had. I need what she can't give. Tonight will be the night I tell her good-bye. Sounds easier than I know it'll be. We've been together almost 6 very trying months. Another hopeful relationship  bites the dust....It will probably take awhile to...

    I initiated the break up.

    And it has been real hard. Real real hard to deal with. But I know I have to do it. If I don't, it'll be at the expense of my sanity and I can't let that happen to myself. There are days where I can't function fully. And days where I'm okay with thjngs. It's draining for...

    When you think you know someone

    I'm going through a break up

    and it's the worst ever. Not the first time as I was in a on/off relationship of 5 years. What's hurting me is that my ex is behaving like I was such a terrible person. We broke up over a stupid argument and I tried fixing things and he wasn't having it. It wasn't over cheating...

    How am I supposed to be ok?

    I loved him so much and he didn't even have a reason why he broke up with me. Did that whole year not even matter? How can he say "you're sweet and I'll always be here and then break up with me? I don't even have any real friends to lean on. I hate feeling like this.

    I don't know what to do with myself.

    I want to sleep forever,to never wake up. I want to die,to be dead,not to feel. I want to travel back in time and never meet you. I want to wake up in a time where I no longer feel this pain. I want to be numb,dead. To not exist because I feel like without you I don't.
