Just got out of a six year relationship with my boyfriend. Im sad, im angry, but I also can’t help but feel hopeful. My family didn’t respect him, and he got fed up with it. However my family says he shouldn’t care what they think about him. Im angry that he just threw the towel without even trying to make the effort to make it work. I want to hate him, but I love him to much. But I want to stop loving him, so that we can be friends. My emotions are everywhere and i don’t know how to deal with them.

    i know firsthand what it’s like to not be respected by a partner’s family. it’s really not the easiest thing ever and it takes a toll on you, but if you love a person enough i don’t think it should matter. my boyfriend and i have been together almost 5 years and it’s caused a lot of issues in our relationship, but i’m with him for HIM, not his parents, you know? i’m not sure why he decided to leave but i also know what’s it’s like to be dumped so i understand why you’re feeling the way you are. reach out if you want to talk more!
