How can I handle this?

I always advice COMPLETE separation after a break up... no contact AT ALL for at least a few months, before going back to being friends. Otherwise it gets confusing emotionally, you second guess your decision, and it takes much longer for both of you to get over the relationship and get to a point where you CAN be just friends.

For now, I'd give him his space, since he wants it so bad. It's apparent that you want to be there for him, but you have to think about what's best and works for you, too. Depression is such a battle, and I don't know if it ever really goes away. There's good days, great days, but it's always still there, and I hope you understand that there's only so much you can do. So like I said, take some time away from him and his issues to worry about you and yours. Maybe things will sort themselves out between you two, but for now, just let it be.
