I was in an abusive relationship and he was an alcoholic. I decided to pack all my stuff and leave him one night, but I ended up hanging out with him again and he seems to have changed. He apologizes for the shitty way he trneated me and begs for another chance. We were together for 2 years and I just can't find it in me to break his heart. I'm hoping his changes are permanent. I want to be with him but then again I don't. Ugh. What do I do? How can I nicely break it off? I really need an outsiders opinion because clearly I don't have enough backbone to say I'm done. I'm over you. I'm moving on.

don't give him another chance. he's out of chances. You don't want to get sucked back in only to have your heart crushed again. He doesn't care about you as much as he says, unfortunately. To get over him I'd suggest being with your friends and keeping busy doing other activities as long as you can. Being alone is when it hurts the most. You fell in love with him a first time when he didn't appear to be an abuser, but he could be fooling you again. Tell him you still love him but not in the same way you used to. Tell him he will always be a part of you but you can't be with him and it'll be better for both of you to work on yourselves individually. so sorry to hear what you've been through. :/1
