How do you deal with the pain?

In the middle of a breakup from DP, we have 1 DC together.

It was amicable enough, lots of issues including pointless, silly arguments but they totted up and he now resents me. I believe he fell out of love with me a long time ago but did nothing about it...
We agreed to split 3 weeks ago - ever since then he's been happy, almost relieved while I can't eat, sleep or string a thought together.
My chest physically hurts from the pain of this, I can't bear the thought of losing him but I already have.

Sorry if I'm rambling, I can't focus on anything other than making sure DD is looked after.

There's no easy answer. Just focus on getting through each day and in time the pain will start to ease.

As Pirate said. It's an old adage but, time is a great healer.

YOu'll find the roles tend to swap. Whoever is anxious, broken and devastated short term, tends to be okay long term, and the other slowly comes to realise what they've lost. Go through it. Bizarrely, it bodes well.
