Hi Everyone - I am 22 years old and I suffer from anxiety. My boyfriend broke up with me less than a month ago and we were together for two years. We still talk almost every day, hang out, and spend the night together. I cannot stop obsessing over the thought of him with another girls and I just can't let go of the idea that I failed. I love him so much and I want to be his friend, but I just want this pain to end. I just do not know what to do

sjread690, It's pretty hard to switch gears regarding emotional feelings in less than a month. The fact that you are talking, hanging out and spending the night together (intimately?) makes it impossible for the pain to go away. Trying to be a friend to someone you still love is an ever ending obstacle in moving forward.

Since he is the one who broke up with you, it sounds like he may have needed some space for a while but also can't let go completely. You are in a no win situation unless you also give yourself time and space as well. Wishing you my best. I think you know what needs to be done but are afraid. xx
