Most Helpful Guy
Don't waste your time. He left for a reason, and if you want him back, then carry on and be fine without him. If he doesn't come back, then he doesn't want to be with you. That's no reflection on you, not does it make you less of a person, so don't beat yourself up. You're not alone in this situation at all, not are you alone period. Melt the dust settle and take corners. Work on YOU, which is more important anyway. Guess what? If you find and do what makes you happy, you may not want him back at that point. Detaching from people is hell, but sometimes it's better in the long run.
