Okay so my girlfriend broke up with me about a month ago, and it really really upset me as i wanted to spend the rest of my life with her, also it was really sudden. The only reason she said is that its not working.

So for about a week we didn't talk at all then we started being friends again, she said she cares about me and wants me in her life, but that we won't ever get back together. And i really want to be friends with her for her and for me because were still really close and i dont want to loose her completely, but sometimes i just find it so hard, it really hurts being around her sometimes, but i dont want to give up on her completely.

Is there anything i can do to make this easier?
