3 tips on how to end a relationship
04 January 2016, 12:02
Sometimes we feel that there are too many things happening in our relationships that make us unhappy or uncomfortable. Whatever the reason, breaking up with someone you love can be hard.
Here are tips that can help you end a relationship:
1. Choose an appropriate place
Talk to the person somewhere that is comfortable for the both of you. If you are worried about safety, a public place would be the best choice. Don't intentionally hurt the person with insult or name-calling. This will make the conversation harder. Be direct when explaining why you are ending the relationship. Being honest may help the person to build better relationships in the future.
2. Say it in person
If you feel safe, talk to the person face to face. An e-mail, phone call or text message is usually not a polite to go about it. If you do not do it yourself, it can create more problems.
3. Stick to your decision
Don't allow the person to change your mind. It is normal for someone to cry or get upset during a break up. Feeling bad and guilty is not a reason to stay in the relationship. Plus do not promise friendship. You might be tempted to promise friendship to ease the hurt of a breakup. This can in turn cause more hurt and confusion later on if you do not intend to actually stay friends.
