Thanks for rubbing salt in the wound

In November I got dumped by my boyfriend of over four years. He went out west to work for six months straight, then came back for a visit before he would be heading out again. He wasn't even going to be around for Christmas, so when he told me before flying back home that he had to tell me something important when he gets here I got excited and thought he was going to propose. I get the shock of a life time when he breaks up with me and said he's found someone else! Some other woman who also went out west for work! I was just devastated, crying myself to sleep. Of course I would seek support from my family and friends, but I didn't get that! Instead I got told what I could have done to keep him. If I moved out west with him and made good money myself, he wouldn't have left me. If I got in good shape like him, he wouldn't have left me. I should have went back to school. Apparently he's too good for me because he's toned up while I'm fat, clears over $10,000/month while I only clear about $1,400 at my retail job. Forget about all the times I stood by him, like when his dad practically disowned him and many other hardships he's gone through. I've loved him and treated him like a king. But now that he's making big bucks out west, I'm not worthy of him anymore. —Spent the holidays single for the first time since 2009
