You've gotten involved with a guy who's used to being babied, a guy who seems to become devastated over the littlest thing. You don't want to be around him anymore, but you're scared that if you break up with him, he'll sob hysterically, beg you not to, and refuse to take "no" for an answer. Worse yet, even if you do manage to break things off, he might keep begging and become more pitiful than ever. One way to get around that is to get him to break up with you. That way, he'll feel it was a decision he made, and he won't keep imploring you to take him back.
