    How to help my depressed boyfriend who is pushing me away?

    I am in a long-distance relationship for 3 years now, we are back and forth for now since no one can completely move to another place just yet. We love each other so much.

    When we are together we are perfect! But when apart, my anxieties hit I guess and I cause fights over nothing. He is always loving and supportive but I think I drove him crazy with that, yet he still stuck with me.

    Now though 2 other big things that need work and focus happened in this life. I know they have priority! But he is pushing me away, saying he doesn't know if we are together or not, one part of him knows he still loves and cares for me but I guess his coping mechanism kicks in and he is apathetic for everything. We were making plans to get married even and now I see our lives slipping away. I don't know what to do to save it and to help him. I am getting help myself so I won't be stressed and irritable. I'm having almost daily breakdowns not knowing what to do.
