Yesterday, my boyfriend of 5 months dumped me. It’s been a sad and painful few days because he told me he wanted to go on a break on Saturday and yesterday, he said he didn’t want a break but a break-up. Before he said this, I told him how I wanted to give us a second try because I think everything deserves a second chance. He divulged that he was having doubts about the relationship and he felt like he did not love me romantically anymore.
To say I am crushed is an understatement. I did not see this coming. He gave me the impression that everything was fine and that we were very much in love with each other. Just a fortnight ago, he gave me flowers when he came back from travelling and told me how much he cared about me and was happy to be back in Tanzania. I really thought we were going to explore lots more of each other.
I feel betrayed and like the trust is broken because I had no idea that he had doubts, and it only came out 5 days ago when he told me he wanted a break. I don’t beg for any man but I did tell him yesterday that I hoped we could work it out because I am not a quitter and I definitely thought the relationship had wings because I had/have strong feelings for him.
To be told that your boyfriend has fallen out of love with you is truly devastating.
As I wake up this morning, I feel like I am going to struggle to do my work when I know now is the time to throw myself into my work. It’s very hard to even concentrate on copywriting and making cold calls when all I want is the relationship to be the way it was.
How do you think about work when you are heartbroken?
