My boyfriend and I broke up one month ago. We dated for a year and had a relationship for 1 year afterwards. When we met I was very insecure. I did not really have an opinion and I did not have any confidence. He gave me love and told me I was beautiful. He surprised me and spoiled me, just as much as I surprised and spoiled him. We talked about everything and we had so much fun together. We went on trips together, we cooked together, laughed together, loved together. He was my best friend. Last month he went on exchange to Italy. A week before I was supposed to visit him, he broke up with me. I still don’t get it. I feel really weak and heartbroken at the moment. I wish I was stronger, I wish I could be happy with myself. My life felt so much better while he was next to me. I know I should focus on myself and I will eventually become a stronger person. I just wish it wouldn’t be so painful.
