How to stop feeling guilty over leaving someone you're not meant to be with

It sounds like you've tried to let him know in an easy way without one big blow which was nice of you. Since you are married, this had to be coming on for a while. At this point it might make it easier on him if you did just cut it off. So you can think of it as helping him. He will get over it sooner the sooner he accepts it. There isn't much else you can do if you know you can't stay with him. Not an easy situation. I hope you both can stay kind to each other throughout.
Best wishes to you and him.
I was thinking about this last night. I never could tell anyone I left that I flat-out didn't love them. I would say something like I needed time to be alone...a part of me will always love them...timing not right....it's all my fault....etc. All of that was really true and less harsh.
