Josh Murray wants us to feel for him because he's apparently 'emotionally drained' following his breakup

In a statement to Us Weekly, Murray revealed that he has been through a tough couple of weeks, and that aside from his engagement being called off, his beloved dog Sabel died and his uncle also passed away.

"I'm emotionally drained," Murray admitted in the statement, adding, "As for our relationship, it just wasn't working out and it sucks. I moved across the country for her, I fell in love with her kids, really loved her family, but we just weren't able to grow together as a couple and it was very frustrating."

Murray continued, revealing that while he and Stanton did want a lot of the same things from life, they were also very different. That said, he maintains that he "will always love her and the little ones." He added that he wants nothing but the best for Stanton in the future and hopes that they can both find happiness.

This week, Stanton also spoke out about her split from Murray, telling the publication on Monday, Jan. 2 that they had broken up. She added, "It's been kind of a weird situation because we broke up and we didn't release a statement, obviously, so I think people have been kind of going crazy wondering if we're together or if we're not, and we're not. … Hopefully everyone can know the truth now."
