sacrificed true love for family. watch

    I have had to end something very special with the guy I haved loved for a long time. I love him so much and he loves me even more, however due to my family's definite *disapproval (lets say for arguments sake its approving of a muslim being with a jew) I have had to end it with him. I pretended to him that I would be happy without him and that this is the right thing to do, but I only said those things to make it easier for him to accept it.*
    Its been over a week now and it has hit me how much I miss him. Im so stuck I dont know what I should do...
    I have done a huge comprimise and sacrifice for my family. Did I do the right thing? I could have carried it on with him but that would have led to soo many problems at home, its unthinkable!*
    This was true love, and I have chucked it away leaving the both of us heartbroken. I dont know if I will ever be able to be happy again. *Please give me some advice I need help *
    Dont say to me that I should try and talk to my parents, because I know for sure that it is not going to turn out good. Its like this was the only option I had, and I have taken it. I dont even know what I am looking for on here, I needed to let this out cause its eating me alive inside!**

    Why don't they like him?

    May God reward you for your hardship and trial you've been put through.

    How old are you?

    I personally would say screw family.....

    and I come from a similar family....

    simply as your family will eventually come to accept you....

    if you throw this away, you will be unhappy for the rest of your life

    So you have put your family's dislike/hatred for something or someone before your love of someone?
