Hi. Im 25 years old and converting to orthodox judaism (my dad is jewish) and since i am becoming orthodox i HAVE to break up with my boyfriend (he’s christian). I’m so in love and i’m literally so sad i have to do this, i’ve lost my entire appetite and i cry all the time but then i remember i’m doing it for a good reason.
Even though i am doing it for a good reason and moving out of his apartment to live closer to the synagogue it’s like i’ve been trapped in a depressive cycle. I know we will never get married and our relationship will never be long term due to my drastic lifestyle changes but somehow i still mourn. Are there any converts who have gone through the same thing? Obviously i am 100% willing to give up everything for converting but i’m still depressed.
