    I just found out that he's seeing someone else,

    less than 2 months later and it's breaking me apart. Especially that just 2 days ago we talked about us and he's still not over me or the breakup. I hate this feeling so much.

    and we were exchanging pictures (you can guess) and it was really bad for me I was ignoring my family and friends I stopped going to church and I only realised it was bad for me when she broke it off (yesterday) I now feel broken and alone but I know it's for the best.
