He never told me he wanted to break up or take a break, just cut all contact. We were together for 7 years it hurts that he would do this to me but I know it's probably his way of telling me it's over. We're in our late 20s.
He's done this once before after an argument a few years ago. I tried to get closure by asking him to be straight with me but he never responded and I still wasn't really over him 3 months later when he came asking to get back together, promising never to make the same mistake etc etc.
Normally I cry after an argument or when he says he wants to break up and it helps me get the feelings out but this time I haven't been able to cry at all. My brain tells me it's over but my heart still hopes that he'll make contact and that really frustrates me :( It's like I'm stuck in denial and can't move on. Tbh I'm still shocked that he's done this again and I've just been in a numb state.
How can I accept it's over so I can just start the grieving process?
