I guess we are going to part ways after 5 years together.....

DD is going with me 7 hours away and he is staying here. I'm going for job seeking purposes. I've truthfully not been happy for 4 of the 5 years. Now that we are amicably parting ways, I find myself sad. Very sad about it. I feel crazy almost. We leave next week. Why am I feeling so sad?

  • Because a chapter that you hoped would be a whole book is closing. It's completely natural to feel sad when we let go of a hope that was a part of ourselves. Good luck to you. You'll be in our thoughts. Stay in touch and let us know how you are doing.

  • you have been with some for 5yrs it's losing part of your heart ,you thought it was death do you part
    but not to be lost of some gave your true love ,yes there was good times but when you drift apart you try to hold everything together

  • i kno how you feel, i was in a realtionship with a man for 6 years and i woke up one day and just packed up and left of course different situation but i still felt the sadness and to be honest its like was said above its like loosing a part of your heart. No matter what there will always be love of course but you may not be in love with him for whatever reasons, just be strong and keep your head up do what you have to do for you and your you will outgrow the sadness and find better happiness...and wish you the best..keep in touch will all of us CM
