How can you end a relationship in a positive way? Too often people get very emotional about a break up, and rightly so. Dating involves opening yourself and letting someone see the real you. When you get rejected after doing this, it can really hurt.
Sometimes a break up is a relief. When you know for certain that the person you are seeing is not the one, saying goodbye isn’t nearly as difficult. But what if your partner has really hurt you? Brought negativity into your life? Cheated on you? Breaking up in a positive way is very difficult in those situations.
Singles owe it to themselves to break up in the most positive manner possible. They need to do this for their own peace of mind. Ending things as positively as you can allows you to move on faster and more completely.
Breaking up might seem like an easy thing to do, but there is actually an art to do well. (Like all things in life.) The key to breaking up with someone is to do it in a manner that leaves it as positive as it can possibly be. It’s not at all easy to do. After all, many times when you break up with someone it’s because the person has cheated on you, stole from you, been dishonest, or is simply not treating you with the respect you deserve.
Despite all this, it’s important to end a relationship in a way that truly frees you from the baggage that came along with it. Sound impossible? It’s not.
Don’t Break Up in Anger
Many breakups happen in the heat of the moment, and understandably so. However, you should instead take some time and reflect back on your relationship. Perhaps when you consider things you really do want to work on them. Or, if you find that you have moved beyond this person, get yourself in a positive state and then approach them to talk. Doing so will help you to avoid saying things that are hurtful, and will leave you in a more positive place when it comes to meeting someone new.
Learn the Lesson
The people we meet usually teach us something about ourselves. So silently take a moment and appreciate what you’ve learned from that person. Then, let this person go so that when you enter a new partnership, you’re not dragging old wounds along for the ride.
Wish Them the Best
It’s difficult to wish someone the very best and mean it. If you can master this act, you will eliminate the attachment we feel when we hold anger for someone. Wishing someone a life alone and lonely only holds you back.
