He Doesn't Want to Be With Me Anymore
Last night, my boyfriend of 5 years text messaged me that he wanted us to go our separate ways. He says we are too different to be together. I have always appreciated our differences and that was drew me to him and allowed myself to open up and trust him and be with him. He knew when we begin talking and seeing one another that I had gone through a bad divorce. He knew I was quiet and reserved and the divorce made it worse. He stayed around and finally I let my guard down. Now this is a blow to me because he says we should face reality and realize that the relationship can't go anywhere. I'm devastated because he can't tell me where he wanted the relationship to go only that we're different. I have my elderly mother who lives with me because she became ill a few years back. She is healthy now, but the illness exhausted her savings so she has no choice but to live with me and I know he resented that for some reason, but I never resented his children and treated them with kindness all the time. I feel like I can get over the breakup in time, but attacking the fact that I'm a quiet person and not loud and outgoing is something I'm having trouble processing. All I want is someone to love and care for and someone who loves and cares for me in return.
