you have every right to be upset. The mind knows things are right but it takes awhile for the heart to catch up. my ex took me to look at rings but we never got engaged. we broke up as I was getting out if active duty military after he told me he wasn’t happy anymore. I had to move out of state and stay with my parents and thankfully I found a job right away but that meant moving to a city where I didnt know anyone. so its definitely not the same as being engaged but the things that helped me were just reminding myself that it wasn’t the kind of marriage that I wanted. It did take time to adjust but I always knew that leaving was the right thing to do. just remind yourself what type of relationship you want and look forward to finding those qualities with someone else.

i was engaged before 5 years ago. we were about 9 months from the wedding day and i realized that if both people don’t put in the effort into a relationship, it won’t work. i realized i was the only one who cared about our relationship and got out. i lost out on money and it was a little embarrassing but now i’m with someone who cares so much and it was so worth it! congrats on having the courage to do this but i promise it will be worth it!

I think one of my really good friends said it best when she and hers broke up:

Just because you love someone, it doesn’t mean you can be with them.

<3 to you.
