I've been with my girlfriend 7 years. I love her more than anything. but I currently ran into hardships. I lost my job almost a year ago, and I am having trouble finding another. My car is failing, and by failing I mean may need thousands in work. my girlfriend is successful, she knows what to do and where to go in life, but often times has trouble knowing how to get there with my hardships. she hasn't voiced a desire to leave me, of that I am grateful. But i pity her. one cannot live a good life on hopes and dreams alone. So I wish to leave her. I haven't told her, and I still try hard to keep from leaving her. but I love her, and I know she would be well off without me, if not better. there are a lot more things in my life that cause me trouble. but that would give away who I am, were she to ever read this. I love her so much, she should be free of my hardships.
