He Broke My Heart

Well it is over with my boyfriend and I.  I met him 3 years ago and when we met he said that he was tired of looking and wanted to settle down. Today he broke my heart due to his depression.  He says it is not me and that he has no complaints about us but that he feels like he just needs to be alone.  I drew a portrait of him last weekend because we kind of gave each other some space but all I could think about was him.  You know what the sad thing is...his children and my children became very close. I mean at 39 he says he doesn't know what he wants.  I look at it this way I am 31 and single again and I know what I want and what I don't want and I don't want to cry.  I am so done being weak for the cold hearted!  I really loved him but it was time for us to end it I guess.  God has a better person coming into my life.  Life goes on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so sorry this is happening to you. It is difficult sometimes to relate to people who suffer from depression (I have depression). We're just not wrapped as tightly as most people and sometimes cause disappointment. But it's for the best he needs to make a change, even if it's not obvious to others. Broke my heart when my close decided to call it off. Your story gives me hope for healing. You seem to have a good start and a good heart. Thank goodness for EP support! Take care!

I broke up with my partner of 11 years just over 18months ago so I know exactly how you feel. She found someone else while I was trying to get over the death of my dad. I fought for, and managed to keep full custody of my 3 children and they are my life now. Your kids will always be there for you so you will never be alone. All the best.

You will be stronger now. I am sorry for you - but it seems you know what you want. You go get em!!
