I live with my boyfriend. He's a good, kind man and he's successful. He is also supportive of me. We have a happy relationship, and it is relatively easy going. Yet recently I find myself wanting out.
I don't know why or what's causing it, but I feel like I need to be on my own. I feel like I need to grow and figure out who I am. I'm 21 and I've been with the same man since I was 16 years old. I think we could have a wonderful life together. There is nothing particularly wrong with us, we have a perfectly functional relationship, so I don't understand why I feel I need to leave. I think I keep searching for the reason why it's not enough anymore but truth be told I just don't know.
I feel like I'd be taking a huge risk leaving and I know I would be hurt. I do care greatly about him. I think I'm about to leave him, but I don't know why because there's nothing obviously wrong with us. He loves me, so why on earth am I so confused?
Is there anyone else who has been in the same situation?
