Enough is Enough: How to Finally End It

We’ve all been there. Your relationship is dwindling into a downward spiral. There’s fights, spiteful words thrown around and silence. It’s time to end it but you’re not sure how. It’s time to say enough is enough.

 Five Steps to Ending Your Relationship:

. Talk: Before officially ending it, it’s important to talk to your partner. Both of you need to be on the same page. It’s vital for the other person to realize why you’re breaking up, or vice versa. This might be difficult if communication was a huge factor in the demise of your relationship, but opening up about your feelings will help the situation.

2. Part Ways: Living with someone during a breakup might be worse than the actual breakup. If you do live with one another, it’s time for both of you to move on. If possible, both of you should move out of your shared apartment or house so it doesn’t feel weird when one of you still lives there. The memories are within all the walls, so moving into a whole new environment will lighten the mood and make it easier for you.

3. Cut Ties: If you have been in a relationship for a long time, it’s possible you share accounts. This can be anything from a bank, cable, electric or even a Netflix account. Sharing something with someone you are trying to cut ties with can be difficult, especially if you don’t want to talk to them anymore. So make sure that after breaking up you end all of this.

4. Keep Busy: This might be the most important step. After a relationship ends, it’s normal to be sad, depressed, lifeless and angry. So, instead of sitting on the couch with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s crying over Grey’s Anatomy, get out there! Go hang out with your friends at a bar. Do something exciting like go see a local band play, hang out on the beach or go hiking in the mountains to relieve stress. Anything is better than sitting around and feeling sorry for yourself.

5. Don’t Give In: This is probably the most difficult thing about breaking up. Many people will give into their partners pleads and get back with them. Don’t! You broke up for a reason and it’s important to stick to your guns. Unless your partner buys you a new Mercedes, don’t get back with them. (Just Kidding!) If you guys have reached the point that you need to break up, the situation will not get better.

Now that you know how to get out of a relationship, it’s time to move on, go out there and meet someone new!
