    I'm going through a really hard breakup.

    I loved her, I loved her with all my heart and mind, and she shattered me. I wasn't enough to keep her happy, I'm never enough. I love her still, but, even if she comes back I won't take her back, I would always doubt if she's happy, and I can't keep her tied to me when she...
