After 3 years we are parting ways. DP has many demons to deal with, depression being the biggest. His depression was exhausting me, it got to the point where I didn't know if I was coming or going. We talked last night and came to the conclusion that it would be best to be friends but separate, he has to sort stuff I have to learn how to let people in and actually show them I love them (abusive childhood). We are best friends above everything else I think. I am devastated I saw the whole of my life with this man. I know it'll be ok, I know it will. I have to try not to let this consume me.

That sounds tough. Hope you are ok and being kind to yourself. I've nothing really worthy to add but I didn't want to read and run. I'm sure others will be along soon to offer more constructive advice. One day at a time.

Maybe you will reunite maybe you won't. Focus on building a happy and healthy relationship. That's usually more fulfilling than anything romantic. I promise you it will all be okay chocolate
