My ex girlfriend ended our relationship because she felt it wasn't fair that I was giving more than she could at the time. She was trying to juggle work, family, friends, and a couple personal issues, so I had no problem putting more into it than she could, because in my opinion a relationship isn't always going to be 50/50. She said she still loved me, but she just couldn't handle the relationship right now. Did she do me a favor? Is this a legitimate reason to end a relationship? This was a couple months ago, and she's still single. We talk occasionally, and she's expressed that she misses me (which I wanted to reply with "well why did you wanna break up then?") and I miss her too, but we both agree that we can't be "just friends."

I once ended a relationship with a guy I love very much because I wasn’t mentally in the best state and he was putting so much into the relationship that I felt I couldn’t return at the time. I didn’t want it to turn into a toxic relationship and wanted to be able to give back all that he was giving to me, but I also felt it wasn’t fair to only take “a break” as I didn’t know how long it would take me to get better and I didn’t want him to have to wait. I felt guilty keeping him from experiences that I couldn’t give him at the time, so yeah. I think it can be a legitimate reason to end a relationship, but I suppose I’m a bit biased as I’ve been the one to do it. But we did end up getting back together and things went amazing for us1

I don't think one person putting in more than the other is necessarily a reason to break up. However, having a lot of other things going on and wanting to focus on those is legitimate, sometimes not seeing someone enough adds more stress and complication than not seeing them at all.0
