When grieving the loss of a relationship, we often assume that avoiding painful emotions will bring us relief when the opposite is true.
Good communication was all it took to make things work.

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.
What’s your most appropriate reaction?
Giving someone a second chance is like providing someone with another bullet after they missed shooting you the first time.
