So I’ve been debating to come on here and share how I’m feeling about my relationship as I don’t really want people knowing my business but it’s starting to become a weight on my shoulder that I can’t seem to shrug off.
I’ve been with my partner over a year and at the start everything was perfect, all the right feels and emotions however it’s came to just over a year and I’m starting to feel different towards him, it’s not that I don’t love him because I love him a lot I just feel at this current time where I am with my life and where he is with his life we are in two completely different stages of our lives and sometimes that’s not a bad thing I know but it’s been over 4 years and I struggle with really bad depression and it’s taken me this long to get out of the house and start doing something with my life, I’m currently a student (or was until COVID hit) and unemployed, my partner on the other hand has a stable job, he drives and is very much independent which I soon hope I can be too. He’s always had things easy which he even admits and I feel sometimes he doesn’t understand why I struggle, I know he try’s too and I appreciate that but he will never understand because he’s never gone through something traumatic. I don’t feel ready in my life to carry things on becuse I feel we are in two different stages of our lives and I always feel I’m having to catch up to him. I feel guilty for feeling the way I do, I feel like I shouldn’t be feeling like this because I still love him and he hasn’t done anything spiteful for me to feel the way I do, it’s just me.
