relationship advice

So basically, my bf hasn't been texting me as much as we used to as he has family and person problems. Now this has impacted me as we spoke, called a lot. Now it's minimal contact. He has a job too which i respect and I do emphasise for him as family problems can be pretty crappy. I have texted him a lot over the past 2 weeks, consoling him and telling him to look after his wellbeing and that i love him, but he comes with 'i dont know what to say' and rarely ever says he loves me or shows that he does love me anymore.
On top of that I dont think he understands how his cold and one worded responses are affecting me and my feelings. I have spoke about it multiple times, but he goes im sorry and leaves it at that. I'm not sure what to do. Should I wait on him? Take a break? It feels so crappy to know that someone you love treats you like a stranger. Is this something that will get better?
I’m not going to suggest anything major because i’m not sure on all the factors to this, but the fact he’s cold and seems to be using family problems as an excuse could mean he just needs time to focus on himself away from a relationship. He may be drained and can’t put any time into you, or maybe he isn’t into you any more at all? How long have you been together?
