Breaking up and parting ways with your partner is the hardest thing to imagine. A painful experience that it is, it turbulently affects one’s emotional and mental state. There are no hard rules of how to break up, but you can make it much easier and comfortable. Read to know the tips on how to get out of a broken relationship:
Who needs to know it first?
The obvious answer is your partner. People, who do not directly tell their “once-a-partner” or let them know through their friends that the relationship is over, make a big mistake. A person with whom you have shared a romantic relationship with deserves to be informed by you and not by a common friend. This is a private decision and it should be kept private until both the partners know about it. Out of anger in a relationship, people, sometimes, blast their break-up news in public. Remember this can be disrespectful and embarrassing to your “once-a-partner”. If he or she is extremely sentimental, you must decide on the right time or day to break the news to him/her. Breaking up brings a lot of emotional devastation therefore, keep in mind that after knowing about it, he or she has some time to come to terms.
A neutral location
Ending your relationship at your place or his or her place is not a good option as these places can remind him or her of the quality time you have spent together. Choose a neutral place where expressing your feelings is comfortable and not a reminder of your past life. A secluded park can be a good choice as you can talk while walking. A restaurant or a mall is also a bad choice. Evaluate all the secluded places and circle on the one where an intense argument would not embarrass you.
Do it with dignity
No matter what you feel for him or her presently, remember that a feeling of hatred does not give the freedom to humiliate someone. Your partner deserves an explanation of the reasons, which made the things go sour in your relationship. Clarify everything and freely discuss the problems you have had. Use wise words and discuss maturely. An intelligent conversation can make your “once-a-partner” a good friend.
Another undignified thing to do is to text your partner about the breakup. This is completely unjustifiable and shows that you cannot take a strong stand in face-to-face interactions related to such emotional matters. To break the parting news, always meet your soon-to-be-ex because it is their right to know everything about it.
Ending it finally
No matter how you end it or where you end it, tears will be shed. Parting ways bring out intense emotions and it is hard to hide the tears while breaking up. This is exclusive of girls as they cannot control an outburst of tears for long. In such a situation, control yourself. If your soon-to-be-ex does not show any emotion in front of you, do not beg them to.
