My girlfriend and I recently broke up. We were together for a while, and she ended it. Today, I reached out and found out why we split. It was because of her depression, and her fear of hurting me by pushing me away. I dont know what to do. I told her i knew she was depressed, and that I should have given her space, but since then, she has not responded to me. Literally the best time of my life was when we were together, but she just threw it all out. Should I wait for her to reach out? Why is depression like this? It took the greatest person out of my life.

Sorry to hear that happened to you. Depression is really hard to deal with and can make a person want to isolate themselves. She needs to work on herself. Hopefully she is getting help for her mental illness. It's not an easy thing to deal with.2

Yes, give her space. When I mean space. I mean space. don't reach out to her at all. give her at least two weeks. I know it's going to hurt waiting two weeks but if you really want her, be patient. she will come back within two weeks if not then reach out in two weeks.1
