He walked out

I feel sad,lonely and scared. My partner of nearly 8 years has left me for someone else 15 years younger than us. We are both 40 and I thought we were happy I didn't suspect he was having an affair! He brought up my DD from the age of 3 and she adored him. He just said he couldn't do this anymore although we had recently booked a holiday and agreed to try for a baby that we have been discussing in the last 7 years.
I am in total shock and have not told anyone yet. I can't eat sleep or focus on anything!!! Can anyone shed some light or advise me before I go mad!!!

Gosh what a shock for you. Don't feel scared though, it'll be alright you know in the long-term. Obviously you need to give yourself time now to take this in and adjust. Make yourself a cuppa, and focus on slow deep breathing.

Is there anyone that you could call to be with you in rl?

Thanks for your support- I feel emotionally exhausted- just found out he has taken her to New York!! That's just knocked my confidence and self -esteem further down the gutter and i feel really sad. How on earth has he moved on so quick....... shall I call her and tell her that he was with me in the last 8 years because maybe he has told her he was single....
He has ruined my life I must find a new flat as we used to share the rent and bills and I can't afford to do stay in the flat on my own..
