When you break up with someone you love but know it is not working out it feels so bad as it is the end of a dream. You had wonderful plans and they may not work out so getting the courage to let go hurts.
Also you are having trouble making the decision............that also causes you great sadness.
Why do relationship breakups hurt so much, even when the relationship is no longer good? Whatever the reason for a breakup , coping can be a challenge, because even a disappointing relationship starts out with an emotional investment in what could be. Serious relationships begin on a high note of excitement and hope for the future. People invest time, energy, plans, dreams and hope for the future in love relationships. When these relationships fail, we experience profound disappointment, as well as grieve the physical loss of someone important in our lives.
