My boyfriend just recently broke up with me at over 5 years together. I have supported him with his many issues over the years, mainly his toxic relationship with his family. Over the past year, I have been struggling with being unemployed (after graduating with my MA) and he just couldn't handle that anymore. I feel like he has given up on me and now I am lost. I don't know what to do with my life now. How do I move on? I am just really hurt and confused right now and could use some advice.

First of all, hello.
Love is never a 50/50 contribution and it seems like you contributed much more than your partner. Neither is it 50/50 dedication, as you can see from the fact that he left you. Breakups are never easy, especially the ones that end a relationship spanning for years. Now it would be a good time to seek consolation from your family members and your friends. Get yourself distracted. I know you won't be able to distract, but TRY. Even trying counts!
I'm not old and wise, but I know a couple of things about relationships. Wait out for a little while and contact your ex, maybe he changes his mind and comes back to you. If not, then I'm sorry, but he's not worth anybody's love.
Try to find someone who will listen to you! It absolutely doesn't matter who will it be, they should just listen to you venting. It will relief the stress.
Be strong. Best of luck to you!0

Time. That's the only way you'll move on. There's no magical spell or pill to get over someone. We all want to get over someone the day after, but it just doesn't work like that. Whatever you do, it's still going hurt for a while.1
