How to Break Up with Someone Without Looking (Or Going) Crazy


Relationships are tough. There’s just so much work that you both have to put into it to make it work. And just like the things you love, you put a part of yourself in the work you do and get invested in what you’re working on. And also, the person you’re working a relationship out with, in this case. That’s why sometimes breaking up with that person you’ve gotten so invested in and worked through so much together with can be hard. Though some people might be able to have the emotional capacity to go through it gracefully, some people still have a hard time going through it. And if you’re one of those people, read on and you might just pick up something to help you go through with that break-up.

Give Yourself Time

Just like any big decision, it’s best you give yourself some time to think about it before going through with it. Sometimes you might not even need to break up with your significant other and you might just be thinking about it a little too much. But even if you aren’t thinking about it, it’s still good to give yourself time before deciding to really help you look at the entire situation and assess it. That way you’ll know why you want to do it in the first place. Also, it’s best you do not rush into things, especially if your head isn’t exactly in the right place.

Prepare What You Have to Say

After thinking about it, then you can start to think about what you have to say. You don’t necessarily have to have a script or anything. But if you think it might help, that’s fine too. But if you think it might seem a little artificial, then you could at least keep in mind the reasons why and just go from there. Just make sure you know why you’re doing it and what you’re going to say to your partner when the time comes that you want to talk to them. And remember, stick to what you have to say.

Prepare for Anything

In relation to preparing what you have to say, make sure you also prepare for absolutely anything. And by anything, we mean things like your ex-to-be throwing a tantrum or the like. If they do end up doing that, make sure you stand your ground. Don’t back down. Stay firm and keep your composure. But if they decide to be reasonable and talk to you properly, make sure you’re also reasonable and willing to hear them out.

For some people, it’ll take a lot of strength to break up with someone without losing it. And that’s fine because we all deal with things differently. The most important part is that you make sure to think it through and stay composed when you decide to go through with it. It might be a big step, but it’ll be worth it in the end.
