How do you tell yourself to walk away?

I don’t think I have ever been so hurt and confused. I think I am at the point where I legit feel like I am at the very bottom and I can’t get any lower. But scary thing is, I truthfully know it can always get worse.

How do you tell yourself to not be with the person you love more than yourself because it’s “better” for you. How do you convince yourself to not respond when he texts you when all you want is to text him first. And now I’m gonna quote The Vow… how do you look at the person you love and tell yourself to walk away? Cause I can’t.

I want to help him because even though I’m hurt and sad for me, I am also hurt and sad for him. Clearly, he isn’t happy and clearly he is hurting because of something. He needs help but I can’t give him that help without hurting myself too. I don’t know anything now except that I love him and I miss him. I love him too much to forget it, and I love myself too much to keep remembering.

I just want both of us to be happy. Even if it’s not together; I want to be happy and I want him to say he’s happy.
