I’m so incredibly sorry to hear that! I can understand it from both sides. On the one hand, I see getting drunk as a personal decision and once someone drinks, they’re basically letting the alcohol control or at least impair their decisions, so in that way, he might be looking at it as more of an irresponsible choice than a mistake. On the other hand, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I can sympathize with you about the relationship side of all this. The most frustrating thing in the world is when things are THIS close to going right & somehow, they all come crumbling down again. The best thing to do at this point is to give him time and space. I’m not saying that you don’t love him, but I do know that people always break up for a reason, so maybe this is a way that you can start over completely and learn from your mistakes. Even though it’s hard and it hurts, I promise you that there is good to be found in every situation if you look hard enough for it. When he’s ready to talk about it, you’ll know. In the meantime, try to focus on yourself and what a wonderful person you are, with or without him, mistakes or no mistakes, because I promise you, you’re not alone in this! Again, I’m so sorry that you’re hurting, I’m here for you, and I’m praying for you!
