I'm 24 and my ex partner is 26. I'm going through the worst time of my life and I don't see any light of happiness coming my way. I have a 4 year old daughter that my ex pretty much raised as dad from a baby, he was great. We were in love and had a solid relationship over the last 3 1/2 years. About 9 months ago he developed an alcohol addiction around the time he was having court issues regarding his 7 year old son. I tried getting him help but got nowhere and I became bitter and inpatient about it. In the last month before he left we argued a lot, then after one big argument when I was 8 weeks pregnant he moved out and said we just needed to live apart for a little while so a break as such. A week after him moving out he was was in a relationship with a 17 year old and it was plastered all over Facebook I was devastated. A few weeks later he decided to break up with her and come home for a week to see if things could work then he said after a minor disagreement he was leaving again to go back to his new place, that same day the 17 year old pleaded for him to pick her up saying she wasn't happy where she was living etc so he picked her up and moved her in with him and they're now together again. I found myself in pieces and was calling him everyday begging for him to come home. He told me he didn't love me anymore he loved her and I wasn't going to destroy their relationship and he had feelings for her he never had with me. This girl had no money no job can't get government assistance as she's underage and I'm the opposite. I can't understand any of this and I keep wishing he would come back. There was violence towards the end of our relationship he had anger issues and was in prison 5 years ago for assault on his ex partner. I know I should just let go but for some reason I'm still madly in love and my days of pain don't get easier. I haven't heard from him since I last spoke to him on Thursday and I'm just so hurt. Please help any advice would be amazing I've been to counselling and it doesn't seem to help.
