If you're not happy, and you've tried working things out the best you both can, than there's no other way unfortunately.
Hurting people is hard, but it's even harder letting yourself be unhappy just for someone else's sake.
I would have a discussion with her, and bring up the problems one last time. Explain how you're feeling and where you stand in the relationship. Express your wants, needs and the reasons why you feel unhappy together, then go from there. She may feel the same way too. Maybe she's in the same boat as you are, and doesn't know how to bring the topic of a breakup up.
But, just because you break up doesn't mean you both will never be happy again. Yes, it will take some time to get over each other but you both deserve to be happy and that is the main thing.
You have to be happy yourself, and in your life. Being in a toxic relationship that isn't working out makes both parties unhappy. Please think about yourself and put yourself first. You are most important and if you aren't enjoying things with her anymore, and you want her out of your life, then make it happen. Do not settle, trust me. it only gets harder putting up with the longer it lasts, and the harder it gets to get out of it.
You can do it. Be honest, and let your opinions be heard. I wish you the best.

You will hurt her more in the long run if you stay with her and pretend to be happy when you're not. You can end things now and hopefully respect each other or set yourself up for a disastrous breakup in the future.
