I don't normally get so personal on message boards (or online in general) but I felt like being open and honest about this might be somewhat therapeutic. Last night, my boyfriend of almost a year and I broke up. Actually, it's the second time we've broken up, but I know it has to be the last. I was starting to not feel the relationship anymore and I realized there were certain things that he needed, that I just wasn't able to give him at this point of my life. I have to get ready to start college, and I have to do well and not have any distractions. It was so hard hearing him cry when I finally broke down and told him last night. I think that's what hurts the most, is that I hurt someone I truly cared about and loved. I miss him so much, but I know I can't go back this time. It's not fair to him, but I'm just trying to figure out how to help myself. I know things will get better later on, it's just right now that I'm having the hardest time with. Any words of encouragement, anything at all would be very much appreciated.
