I've been going through a breakup these past two weeks as well so I hope I can be off some help. First thing you need to do is to accept that the relationship is over, he made a decision and his decision was that he thinks his life will be better off without you in the picture, that's what it comes down to. He weighed out the positives and negatives and you didn't make the cut. Why you didn't, no one knows except him and you'll never get that answer so get over it.
He didn't make you a priority in his life enough to want to keep you forever. You deserve someone who does make you a priority and loves you whole heartedly. What he said doesn't matter and actions speak greater than words. If he thought you were the one he wants to be with forever he would have never let you go.

Even when you break up you can still love that person and probably always will. Obviously he felt like you both had to break up but it doesn't take away those feelings he has. I have been there before.
