But how can I make sure it's not something that is wrong with me? I don't want to hurt my partner, she is madly in love with me and I know she is extremely attached to me to the point that sometimes she says she'd rather be dead than lose me. This terrifies me. And besides, I do have a lot of feelings for her, I'm just not sure if I "feel it" anymore like I did 9 years ago. I was a looooot more attached to her even 5 years ago to the point that I'd miss her and cry when she was away for 10 days. Nowadays, she could be gone for a whole month on a business trip and I'd feel like I have some freedom around the house and in my life. I feel terrible to admit this... but I just feel like all I need right now is to be single for a while and focus on myself. But I'm terrified it's just a phase and that I might regret it, however it's been on my mind for 2 years now and these feelings are just growing stronger and I'm terrified.
