    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    Thank you @Survivor3. Things have definitely concluded, not in the way that I would like but in the way that they always would have. He is not the person that he was when he was with me anymore and seems to be doing his hardest to distance himself from that person. That has made it quite easy...

    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    Thank you for all of the support, I am very grateful to have the encouragement that I am doing the right thing because it feels so hard, but my hands are tied and it is time to move forward to different things. I truly do believe it is his loss, but I have not lost anything as I had my time with...

    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    Hi @Livinginhope, thanks so much for your reply. It was very insightful and I am very grateful for it. If I am completely honest with you my feelings on this topic have changed greatly. I made the 'mistake' of looking at his social media today as his friend posted a song that he made and the...

    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    I just wanted to update this mainly as an outlet - nothing has really changed and I am more confused than ever. I guess I am trying to decipher how much of his behaviour is the CPTSD and how much of it is just normal breakup stuff. I know I shouldn't really be ruminating so much over this but he...

    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    Hi @Survivor3, thank you. Its been difficult for me to find advice on this that I trust, because most people I know aren't aware of PTSD/ trauma and its general impacts, let alone CPTSD caused by CSA and being a carer for a parent. I've been pretty ignorant about it for a long time too, so...

    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    I am trying to relax, it is just difficult because it was so abrupt and out of the blue. Thank you for your advice though, I appreciate it massively. He blocked me today on his social media then unblocked me so I'm confused about that but at the same time its probably normal. I wish I had been...

    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    Thank you for you reply, it means a lot because I feel very alone in this situation. I'm definitely going to take the approach of backing off, giving him space and if he wants to just having friendly chats every so often. I went through a few days of heavily blaming myself and my triggered...

    Relationship Boyfriend broke up with me because of his CPTSD, being in CBT and reliving CSA memories.

    My boyfriend (23m) broke up with me (21f) on Thursday. This was a a complete shock for me because although the past month has been hard, I thought we had worked through our issues and I also thought being in a more long distance relationship would give him the space he obviously needed. I have...
