How do you walk away?

Been with my boyfriend for a little over a year. He's textbook NPD... Though he won't or can't see it. I'm amazed at how fast a year has changed me. I have no strength to leave him, the mental and emotional abuse has gotten out of control, I've lost myself completely... I have nothing left to give him and yet he stays. He threatened to end things again the other day like I've heard so many times before. Instead of breaking down into tears I agreed with him when he said he couldn't do this anymore... God I was hoping that would be the end of it. That he would discard me and leave but he just changed his tune. Switched to talking about how we need to work harder and communicate better. I can't go on like this. The pain and vindictiveness and the manipulation... I can't take anymore but my self esteem and self worth is so low I don't have the strength to kick him out either. I don't know what to do and I feel so alone.
