You can break up in a way that is likely to cause both you and your partner to eventually look back on the relationship with fondness rather than bitter regrets.
Breaking up with someone you loved is never easy, regardless of whether you wanted it or not. A breakup can be devastating…psychologically, emotionally and even physically. It is undoubtedly one of the most emotional and stressful experiences we can have.
A bad breakup can flip your entire world and trigger unsettling and painful feelings like grief, anger, loneliness and disappointment. You not only lose a partner you loved and cared for, but you also lose all the hopes, commitments, dreams and plans you shared with your partner. Most of the time, nobody is at fault. Sometimes things just don’t work out. And this can be hard to accept. You may feel stressed or you may feel relieved.
Regardless, it can be very confusing to understand all the range of emotions you go through during a breakup. But it’s okay to feel what you are feeling. It’s okay to still love that person. Getting over a breakup takes time and effort, but you will surely get there.

To lose someone you love is to alter your life forever. You don’t get over it because ‘it’ is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not erased by anyone but death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no one else can fit. Why would I want them to?
