A week ago I broke up with my boyfriend of 6 years. It was a mutual break up which came about as the relationship dissolved to nothing. Mostly from lack of time together...Takes care of his mom, two houses to look after and a farm. But mainly because of incompatibility issues...not that I didn't love or care about him. Out of all his girlfriends I'm the only one his mom has took to or really like. I really care(d) about her too.
I know she is battling cancer issues again and the breakup was really bad timing...I know this is probably adding stress to her condition and I am very worried about her.
I know I have to take my space to get over the breakup, which by the way, even though mutual, still is painful.
I don't know what to do. I know I will pull though this but I am worried about causing her problems. Well, I am worried about him to...I know I will move on eventually after healing, but he has SO MUCH he is dealing with all at once...with no siblings or family to count on for support in any realm. I want him to pull through as well.
I know the breakup had to happen...I just am worried about the fall out.

I think if you both made the decision knowing that his mom was already sick and still decided to move forward with the break up, the only thing you can do is move on, being around him and her is just going to make things complicated for both of you. I understand that she means something to you and you care for her , unfortunately she isn't your concern anymore.
And even though she liked you too, she old enough to understand that a vreak is a break up and we all might be broken now but can pull it off with time. Plus have you though about the future, once she gets better are just going to move on after that? why prolong things, your main concern should be yourself, all of you are adults and can move forward0
