Why did the Romans abandon most of their empire?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Why did the Romans abandon most of their empire?       
Why did the Romans abandon most of their empire? In the first few centuries ad, it became clear that the Roman Empire was far too big and unwieldy to survive in its original form. A huge civil service and army were needed to maintain the empire, and these became extremely expensive.
In addition, there were numerous rebellions in different parts of the empire mostly headed by army commanders with designs on becoming emperor.

Eventually, in AD284, Emperor Diocletian broke the Roman Empire into smaller self-governing units, each with its own army.

The whole empire was split into two sections: Eastern and Western. The decline of the empire halted for a while, but soon the fighting resumed.

Eventually the Roman Empire was weakened to such an extent that it was successfully attacked and overrun by invading barbarians.
