The Right Way to Break Up


Breaking up is one of the hardest things to do; regardless of what side you’re on. One person gets their ego bruised and the other may feel horrible guilt. It’s not that you don’t care about the person; to put it simply, sometimes things just don’t work out. The truth is, it isn’t fair to be in a relationship that you don’t want to be in. Just be honest and end things if that is what you want to do. That said, there is a right way to break up. Be respectful of what you had together and let him or her have a chance to talk things out.

1.    Honesty

 Tell the person how you are feeling. If you don’t want to be with them any longer, end it as soon as you know. It’s hard to admit when someone isn’t right for you if you care about him or her, but once you make the decision to break up, stick with it. Second guessing this decision is just putting off the inevitable.

2.    End?

Breaking up doesn’t have to be an absolute end. Don’t make it an, I never want to see you again. You obviously enjoyed each other’s company and became a large part of each other’s lives in the past. There’s no reason to hate your ex or dwell on the negative aspects of the relationship, after all you are aloud to have many great loves.

3.    The Act

These days, there are plenty of ways to break up with someone. If you are completely sure it’s over then end it. Obviously, the most respectful way to end a relationship is in-person, that also means it’s the most difficult. There are other ways to do it: call, e-mail, text or Skype. If you are planning on doing it in a text message or email then be prepared to follow up in person or on the phone after that. Sometimes you just need to give some warning.

4.    Time

If you need time to work up the courage to talk, take it. Having some space will allow you to truly understand what is wrong with your relationship and why you want to end it.

These four guidelines can help you make the right decision when ending a relationship. Hopefully, these tips will help the break up go smoothly and maybe the future the two of you can be friends.
