How to survive or cope with a breakup?

I'm heart broken.

He broke up with me today and we were almost 5 years together. Everything ended well, we care about each other and he may have lost feelings for me but I do love him.

We appreciate each other highly as friends and we won't stop talking. I guess for now we would since we both need time.

He said he may have made the worst decision in his life but he needs time alone to know if I was really the love of his life.

I'm so hurt though and I don't want to expect all the time everything will be okay but I'm so lost.

Because very very sincerely: this is my first relationship. He was my first everything.
