My lover and life partner of 22 years is leaving
My lover is leaving me after 22 years. The pain is beyond description. I had no clue it was coming. We raised 2 beautiful girls, 28 and 29 now. He came to me and said I love you, you are my best friend, but I'm not in love with you. he said he may have never been.
He said that I was everything he wasn't and provided an emotional security that he needed. Now he has met someone else and is leaving. He says that he is not leaving to be with the other person. He is leaving to be on his own. The other person just made him realize that he needs to do this.
I am so devastated that I don't know if I can go on. I see nothing but sadness in my future.
