Lost and Lonely
Im really bad at expressing myself but having difficultly coping recently. I have been with my boyfriend for over 5years. He lost his mother the beginning on this year and it has been really hard. It was quite sudden and unexpected and has been especially hard for his Dad. My boyfriend has sunk into a deep depression and i feel like im going down with him. Im really really trying to be and stay supportive, I feel really selfish for being unhappy, i feel unhappy in our relationship, i dont feel like i make my boyfriend happy, he reassures me all the time that i am the only person that brings him joy anymore and i just feel like i have so much pressure and responsibility on me, and i have no justifible reason to be sad when he has lost his mum who he was so close do. I just feel useless.
