How to Break Up With Somebody You Love

It can be devastating to break up with somebody you care about. It's very painful regardless of who wants to break up. Both of them will experience the emotional pain of separation.

What happens after a break up can affect our emotions. It can be tough, even if the breakup was done peacefully.

You might still be in love with somebody when it's important to break up. You might be confused about how to deal with it.

You might need to walk away from a relationship because you are losing yourself in it. You don't have that feeling of self-worth again.

You might need to end a relationship because you are constantly trying to change to please the person, and it isn't worth it.

The person might have hurt you badly that you find it difficult to forgive and forget, or the relationship is doing you more harm than good.

Make up your mind never to return to the relationship again. Remove the plug that connects both of you. Delete anything that reminds you of them.

Avoid anything that can lead to a conversation between both of you. Keep recalling why you need to break up with the person.

You must love yourself enough to walk away. You can't live the rest of your life trying to please someone who is not adding any value to you.

Don't bottle up negative emotions against the person. Try to have a peaceful conversation with the person and let them know the reasons behind your decision to call it quits.

However, be sure you are not breaking up for the wrong reasons. Break up with the person because you don't want to lose yourself while trying to save a relationship.

Don't blame the person for what you should be responsible for. Be real with yourself and respect the feelings of the person.

Don't say something hurtful to the person when you want to tell them about the break up.

Just let them know that you need a break from the relationship so that you can have time for yourself.

However, don't break up with the person if they recently lost a job or after a quarrel. Please wait for a while before making your decision.

Don't break up through a phone call or a text message. It's better to do it face-to-face. Be prepared for their reaction.

The person may cry to earn your sympathy or argue with your decision. However, you need to make up your mind.
