when love is not enough b/f and I have been going out for 5 years now. I love him so much but there are things about him that I just cant stand and vise versa. Its sad but its like love is not enough sometimes...We are both starting to see a counsellor now but Im just scared if he tells us that we are just better off without each other. I dont know wot to do, its stressing me out. We tried talking about what bothers us about each other but we always end up arguing cause we just cant seem to see it from the other person view. People always say that love will conquer everything but it doesnt seem to working here...

Sounds wise for you both to be seeing a counsellor, and this is presumably the issue you are discussing with that counsellor. It's not a counsellor's job to tell you that you are better off with or without each other, but to help you both to ubsnerstand yourselves and each other, and the relationship, so that you both are better able to make decisions like that. Persevere with the counselling
