Thank you for telling me honestly like what it was. I have been keeping his emotional baggage to myself so it becomes difficult for my closed ones to know the truth. My best friend has also advised the same. I just haven't the heart to break up with him. But I will tell him in a cordial and normal manner that I need some time off to think.
I have played a part in this too. I thought I could handle it and felt bad for him, but its much more than I can handle and I need to focus on myself.
