Most people don't want to give up on their relationships, especially if you love your partner. But I can't stop thinking about the issues we have and I know our long term outlook isn't realistic, we have different goals. So, how do I cut ties now? I feel obligated to stay with her and feel like if I decide to leave, I'm abandoning her. Even though I think we both know our plans aren't alike. I get anxiety about it from just typing this out. Lol, ridiculous.
She is financially dependent on me, she's in school full-time and works part time.
We've lived together for a year, our lease is about up and we'll need to resign.
FML. I love her, but I want to get my life in order and plan my future. I don't want to be an ass about it or leave her struggling.

Those are wrong reasons to stay in a relationship that's making you unhappy. In a way you have to be really selfish in breakups and decide what the best thing to do is and do it. It is kinder to break up with her now than lead her on if you don't plan a future with her. I think you need to be true to yourself and do it asap, I think maybe you are scared of her reaction?0
