We live 4 hours apart, I would drive every other weekend to see him even though he’d be working most of the weekend. We have been together 9 months and this week broke up with me, because he has to focus on his last year of college (he’s becoming a teacher), has 2 jobs, and is handling stress from his father having cancer. I thought we could make it but our conflicting schedules got in the way and I have my final year left of college too. He wants to remain friends and told his mom he still loves me. I’m heartbroken and was looking for encouragement from others who somehow moved on or had the success story of getting back together one day after facing huge adversities like this.
