Has the romance fizzled from your relationship? Does your partner take you for granted? Has your partner started treating you with disrespect? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, maybe it’s time to get out of the relationship you are in.
If you stay in a bad relationship because it’s better than the unknown, you may miss out on finding your true soulmate. However, ending a relationship can be very difficult because of your partner’s reaction.
First off, you should try to understand exactly why you want to end the relationship. You need to do some serious soul searching and then be honest with yourself. You should also ask yourself whether or not the relationship is worth saving.
Never break up over the phone. Always give your partner the respect of being there in person, unless of course, you are in a long distance relationship. The best thing to do there is to end it as soon as possible instead of waiting until you can be together.
You have to be very gentle with your words so that you aren’t putting your partner on the defensive, however, he or she could end up saying some pretty nasty things because of the rejection. You shouldn’t take those things to heart as this can sometimes just be a reaction from rejection.
The hardest part about ending a relationship is the guilt. It can be difficult to not feel guilty if your partner is in a lot of pain or begs you not to do this. However, just staying with someone out of guilt will never work and will actually cause the relationship to end in a very negative and hurtful way.
You may have to meet a few times before the relationship is truly over. It’s best to try to maintain a positive relationship with your ex, however, this is not always possible. Rejection can cause people to act a little crazy. If you see any signs of rage or begin to feel real fear for your safety, be sure to remove yourself from that situation as quickly as possible.
Stand your ground if you really don’t want to work things out. If you do decide that you want to save the relationship, you and your partner will have to decide why it should be saved and how it can be saved. With some work and some real communication, every relationship can be saved if both partners truly want it.
Very often, a relationship has rebounded from a possible break-up into a better than before relationship. Just sitting down and communicating about the relationship can help the two of you to see the relationship in a new light and can help the two of you fix your mistakes from the path. This could lead to a stronger and healthier romance. All relationships have ebbs and highs. It’s like a roller coaster at times.
Just know that there will always be times when you are feeling like things aren’t going well, but something will usually happen and you will begin to feel good about things again. When you start feeling like your love life is in the dumps, do something exciting with your partner to get things feeling good again. Either way, be honest and listen to your heart.
