I plan on breaking up with my long term boyfriend, it's just so hard.. break ups have always been very difficult for me.. and I hate hurting others. I haven't been happy for almost a year now, and I've tried. I've tried to just push through it and focus on the good things and good qualities about this relationship but I just can't keep living like this anymore. I'm sick of being so sad all the time, I know he isn't the one I want to spend the rest of my life with so I need to stop wasting both of our time. This is my first serious adult relationship so I'm freaking out over how to go about this break up.
