> This has something somehow to do with me. With a me that needs him being a different thing than a me that doesn't need him. That something in me will be different if I don't need him, and I think that I'll be losing more than I gain if I replace that something with not needing.

Is dependence the right word? Are you dependent on him...or are you connected to him? More than ten years in a relationship with anyone is a huge investment of self, don't you think? You have forged a connection with him that would have a very unique quality from any other connection you may have or create with anyone else. That connection itself has value. A lot of work went into making it (all your fighting to relationship).
