Breaking up with someone that I truly cared about and loved was one of the hardest things I’ve done. Every day feeling so guilty hoping that she is not crushed. Hurting her was the last thing I ever wanted to do. I just didn’t feel like we would work out in the end. Too many things that made us incompatible. I am a relentless optimistic, she is a pessimist. I save money and she spends everything she has and what others have and she has a ton of debt. I am emotionally expressive, she withdrawn when upset, she has issues sleeping so I ended up not sleeping well. My heart just would not let me stay in it, the last few days before the breakup being so bad that by the time I said something I felt like I went through the breakup 10 times, which didn’t make it any easier to actually end it. I felt like at that point I had no choice, my heart was going to keep screaming at me until I listened.
