3 Helpful Tips for Calling it Quits With Your Partner

February 08, 2019

Breaking up is never fun. Even if it is in the best interests of both parties, there are bound to be tears, tantrums and truths.

It’s sad to realise that a relationship is coming to an end. However, there are ways of handling a break-up to avoid it becoming seriously messy.

Here are three things to keep in mind when you’re thinking of calling it quits:

Always Do What’s Right for You

While a relationship is a two-way street, in the end, you have to do what is best for you. If you are unhappy and the relationship is causing you to be less than yourself, you have to bite the bullet and make the cut.

Be Honest, But Not Brutal

Remember to be open about your feelings and your reasons for breaking up. Additionally, avoid being harsh or brutal – your partner also has feelings and will most likely be hurt. Spare them the brutality, even if you are angry.

Break Up in Person

Show them that you do still respect them as a human being, and tell them the truth in person. This runs the risk of an argument taking place, but in the long run, the person will have respect for you for telling them the truth to their face.
