My name is Kaur and I am breaking up with my girlfriend of 2 years.
What an a*hole, am I right? Keep reading, maybe I can change your mind.
I'm not looking for money to celebrate or drink until I forget about her. I'm not looking for money to buy a new car or rent a new apartment so I'd feel better after leaving her. I AM looking for money so she can keep up with her studies in uni without having to break her back working into the night and going to school during the day.
Me and L have been together for 2 years and we've lived together in a small apartment for a year now. She is the most caring, kind, friendly, hardworking and selfless person that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and loving. Also being very proud and independent she would never ask for money, always trying to get things done on her own. When we moved in together I had the hardest time explaining to her that her well being and education is important enough for me that I would feel good about maintaining our little household and paying for near everything in our household; food, rent, appliances etc. I really meant it. This way she could focus on uni and has earned a scholarship that helps in everyday life but isn't even close to actually being able to live off it. On my paycheck we managed to live a life we both found acceptable, if not exactly comfortable.
Every love story has an ending and unfortunately ours feels too early. We're not fighting, we haven't cheated or had any other reason for ill feelings. Our love seems to have simply run out. I'm sure you know the feeling. We care about each other deeply, but the flame is just not there anymore. I can feel it and so can she. As difficult as it is and as miserable as it feels, I need to let her go. She deserves all the best in the world and that's just not me. She deserves to be able to look for that happiness and she can't do it while shackled to me. It will break both our hearts to part from each other.
Even though I have been let go from my job, I'm not asking money for myself, I can find a new job. I'm asking for donations to support her through the last few months she has left in uni. I'm asking so she can go on fulfilling her dreams, I'm asking because she won't. I'm asking because it's the least I can do for someone who gave me the best 2 years of my life. I'm asking because WITH me she doesn't have the future she deserves. Leaving her is the hardest thing I'll have done in my life.
