My boyfriend and I have been together for seven years. I am still madly in love with him, but lately he has been doubting our future. He says that he has fears and doubts about our future together, but right now he still loves me.
He believes that I deserve better than him because he thinks he cannot give me the things I want from life. I disagree because he is everything I ever wanted and more. The thought of us not being together makes me sick to my stomach. Part of me is wondering if this is just phase he is going through that will pass over time, but another part of me is worried that all this questioning will cause more problems.
What I am wondering is should we continue to try to work on our relationship? We still enjoy each other’s company and love each other, but something has changed. It feels like a shame to give up on something we have shared for seven years with out trying to make it work. But is there really any way to come out of this? Am I being a silly girl who is blinded by love?
