So, I broke up with my girlfriend. It was my fault, and my doing. This is what happened:

For the last few months I've been depressed and dealing with a lot of emotional shit, and I was making her miserable as a result. So we agrees we'd take a break for a little while. However, yesterday I more or less freaked out, and broke up with her, because I really can't handle a relationship right now. We agreed it might work out later, but right now I need some time.

I then spent today feeling miserable about it, and sobbing on my friend's shoulder. Liz (the girlfriend) called a few minutes ago, we basically rehashed the whole thing more coherently, and discerned that we still love each other. Sigh.

I still love her. I did exactly what I promised her I'd never do; I hurt her. I didn't do it intentionally, and almost every factor is outside my control, but it's still my fault. She doesn't deserve this.

I live in a soap opera. When I think something is going okay, it falls apart. Inevitably. Sigh.

I'm going to go mope and do my homework and try to sleep. Wish me luck.

I'm sorry. It's very thoughtful and loving of you to do that though. I mean, it must be hard on both of you, but you know what's best for the two of you. I hope things get better *HUG*

~May the spirits guide your every assure you please her in all the right places XD

that's a rough situation andrew. we all freak out sometimes. we all have our fucked-up trainwreck moments where we hurt ourselves and others, whether intentionally or unintentionally. it sounds like you had a strong, genuine relationship. she knows ur trans and she knows it's stressful. it sounds like u handled things the best possible way. and u still love eachother, which is amazing. since u really care about her, telling her the truth that u can't be in a relationship right now, that u need to work on ur relationship with yourself right now... u made the right choice. the right choice isn't usually the easiest choice... don't beat urself up man. u'll get thru this... thru everything. :o)

Sorry that sounds rough. All relationships have truly shitty moments. Good luck with it all

oh boy.

i definitely know waht you're talking about. my boyfriend and i break up/say that we should break up at least once a week because we have so much emotional junk that it makes the other miserable.

i think especially in teenage years, if you're having a sharing, deep relationship, its kidn of inevitable that this kind of problem will come up. its how you deal with it that makes a difference.

BUT! i'm not really sure how to deal with it...i wish though.
