    I have been dating someone casually for about a year now. When we first started seeing each other, things were great.. the relationship was fun and we had fun together. Lately though, he just gets on my nerves and I don't want to be around him. I have been feeling sad lately, like I do right before the depression starts again. I have to fight myself to get out of bed and go to work, I start turning in late papers at college. And I can't get myself out of it. I would like to think that just ending the relationship would help with the sadness, but I know it is never that simple. And there arises another problem… actually ending the relationship. I absolutely hate being the one to end the relationship. Im not good at it and I always feel guilty for not being happy with the person anymore. Which in turn, could worsen the depression I am already starting to feel. I don't know what to do, I already feel miserable, and as I lay in bed I cannot help but think about what it would be like to end my life. I know the relationship is not the only problem, and its not the only thing causing the depression. I just haven't been happy with it lately and now I am concerned that it is going to make the depression even worse. SO, I am left wondering if the guilt of ending it or trying to stick with a relationship that just isn't working out is better, in terms of how it will effect my depression in the long run. I just want to finish this semester of school and still be able to get out of bed
