I took a month off work to support them, be there, take care of them and ended up moving in with them providing 24hour care. I love her with all my heart, she is my world and it pains me to see her like this
A few weeks back she went to stay with her aunty, when she got back she handed me a letter saying she can’t be in a relationship with me or anyone right now, she has to fix her self on her own and learn to not depend on anyone. I genuinely no she is so broken right now and needs to tackle this illness but I am struggling to understand why she broke off our relationship, we are both hurting and upset and struggling so I am unsure why she would choose this option.
We have been broken up for just under two weeks now and I saw her for the first time the other day, she told me she needs a friend her best friend (me) and maybe we can go for coffee, walks and work on just being friends and hopefully when she feels she’s able to have a relationship get back together but she cant promise anything. As she doesn’t no what she wants right now
I am so torn in what to do because I do want to support her and help and be there when she needs me like I’ve always been. I made it clear to her that friends would be hard because I love her and ultimately want to be back in a relationship with her. I Am struggling with how I am meant to be there but only as a friend, knowing there is a massive chance we will not have our relationship back.
We have been together for a year and been through so many happy times .
