Just be honest with him, tell him it's not him! Explain why you are depressed. Then he might not assume he's the reason. As for him, just as him what you could do to help or make him feel better? Just be open and honest with each other, i'm sure you can both work through it together. =)
Good luck!


I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.

Something similar happened to me. Honestly just talk to him about it. If he is an open person and trusts you, it'll work. If he's more closed and doesn't wanna talk, jut be there for him. When he calls or when you're together. Communication is the answer to all I believe. Let him know how you're feeling about him. Try to make things enjoyable for the both of you. Do things together that will make you happy. Things will turn out the best that way. You can do it. I believe in you. (:

Hey there,

The best advice I can give you is to be honest with him. You are in a stage in life where you need support and it sounds as if your boyfriend is going through that same stage. If the two of you are honest and talk about it you will be able to support each other through all of this.

Sometimes opening up and telling people how we feel can be hard especially when we fear we are going to hurt them. However, if we try to shield our loved ones to much we end up hurting ourselves. You shouldn't have to hurt or deal with all of this alone so let your boyfriend in on what is going on.

I hope this helped and if you need anything feel free to pm me.

Jenna

Just tell him the truth, open up to him and listen to what he has to say, be there to support each other and help each other and you both will become so much closer and stronger together thoughout it. You can both get through it, you are both stronger than you think. Just keep your head up and try to have faith.

Be honest with him, and then tell him it's not his fault. Just talk to him, if he loves you, or cares about you, then he'll want to help you
