Today, my boyfriend left me. Said I was too draining but couldn't tell me what I was doing wrong. We were together for two years and he was my entire life. My entire life's goal was to be with him until the very end, so now I don't know what to do. I hardly even have any friends to talk about it with. FML.

Your situation sucks and I am truly sorry for what you are going through. One of the hardest things a person can do is work on themselves. I agree with the other comments, it doesn't change my sympathy for your sadness but must also encourage you to take this opportunity to learn how to make yourself happy, to learn how to be happy on your own, before you add another person like a partner to your life. It will be very hard, but I assure you it is an important life skill. We must share our lives with others because we want to, not because we NEED to, anything else sets up an unequal power dynamic that can end, as yours did, in heartbreak and hopelessness. You are stronger than you think, get up and love yourself: charity and caring begin at home.

I’m sorry, but you answered your own question. The thing you were doing wrong is making anyone else your ‘whole life.’ You even say you don’t have friends. It’s not healthy or fair to put the weight on one person to be your only form of emotional support. Expand your circle and focus on yourself before trying to make one relationship fulfill all your needs.
