Are you wondering how to end a relationship without regret?
Are you mostly sure that the person you are with is not the person for you?
Are you desperate to figure out whether you are doing the right thing?
Are you fully aware that if you don’t do this right you could leave your person devastated?
Ending a relationship without regret is fully possible and how, in an ideal world, every relationship would end.
So, how do you end a relationship and walk away with your head held high?
#1 – Make sure that you give it your best shot.
It’s very important, when you want to end a relationship without regret, is to make sure that you do everything in your power to make it work.
Many people walk away from relationships without really doing the honest work. They leave because their guy doesn’t understand their feelings or their girl won’t let them go out with the guys on the weekends.
In the words of Arianna Grande, “Thank you, next’
But what if there is a hidden gem under that surface issue that you don’t see because you just up and walk away from a relationship. What if your guy doesn’t understand your feelings but he loves you madly and would love to figure out how to do it but he needs you to show him.
My boyfriend once said to me, in the face of my sadness, “I don’t know what to do!!!” And he didn’t. He had a better idea once I showed him.
So, make sure you aren’t breaking up with someone because of some surface sentiment. Do the work, dig deep, talk to your person about the things that are frustrating you and see if you can fix them so you can continue moving forward together.
Wouldn’t you hate to see your person with someone else, being the person that you wanted them to be but never asked?
#2 – Do it for the right reasons.
Make sure, when you are thinking about how to end a relationship without regret, that you are doing it for the right reasons. If you are ending your relationship because there is someone else, DON’T. The grass isn’t always greener, no matter how amazing it looks right now.
If you are ending your relationship because your friends or family tell you that you should, DON’T. This is your relationship and you need to figure out if this is the person for you.
If you are ending your relationship because your person doesn’t make enough money or isn’t hot enough or listens to weird music, DON’T. Just because someone doesn’t fit society’s ideal of the perfect person, that doesn’t mean they might not be the perfect person for you.
Make sure that you are ending your relationship for the right reasons, that you have given it thought and know that this person is not the right person for you. If you don’t, you might always regret it!
#3 – Don’t be a ghost.
If you want to end a relationship and feel good about it, don’t disappear.
Ghosting seems to be the thing these days – men and women disappearing without a word to their partner. Whether it be because they are scared to face someone or they are too lazy to deal or they are just too busy, people just vanish, never to be heard from again.
And, while this might feel good in the moment, I can promise you that some day you will regret it.
You will regret treating someone with so little respect, knowing that you have hurt them deeply and that you could have done things differently.
Once you ghost someone, you can’t take it back. You will always be the person who did that.
So, if you are considering ghosting your person, don’t. I can promise you that you will regret it, big time, some day.
