My daughter's 5 Year Break up and I am heartbroken

Heather - posted on 09/21/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




My 20 year old daughter was in a 5 year relationship with her boyfriend and has just decided that she thinks that she needs more and he is more into her than she is into him. He has a terrible homelife so has lived in our home for 2 1/2 years of high school (he had a separate room) and then on all vacations and weekends in college. I have 3 older boys myself and he became like one of my sons.
Last March they actually became engaged and my daughter seemed so excited and ready to get married. She even bought a dress and was planning on the wedding. Now, she called that off and pretty much broke up with him.
I am devastated. I know I have to move on but was already suffering from my 2 older boys moving and then my daughter and her boyfriend going back to college. This all happened within a month.
How can I get over this and move on? I think I cry more than he does. :(
