How To End Your Romantic Relationship Amicably
There’s a song saying that all good things come to an end. This is especially true in case of romantic relationships. We all start in awe and love, only to end up in sorrow and misery. The main reason is that love is blind, so we don’t see our partners as they really are, but rather as we’d like them to be. Once the love fades away, if there’s nothing to replace it, we are going to feel the urge to put an end to our romantic relationship. This might happen more than once in a lifetime, so we need to learn how to deal with such situations, how to say goodbye and to do so with the less amount of stress possible.
The best thing we can do is to try to end the romantic relationship amicably. This doesn’t mean it’s not going to hurt both parties involved. Nonetheless, the pain and sorrow will be eased by a calm and measured approach and by the possible friendship that might still exist between two ex-lovers. By ending your romance on a good note, you are going to feel much better about yourself. However, all these are easier said than done, so ending a relationship in an amicable way isn’t always possible.
If you want to be one of the wise people who can exhibit adult and responsible behavior in such situations, you need to be able to control your emotions. Having feelings is normal, but allowing yourself to be swept away by your emotions is something totally different. You should be reasonable and think about the possible causes that have led you to this point in your life.
It matters less whose fault it was, as most of the time both partners are to blame. You should consider this moment a blessing rather than a curse. After all, it is your best chance to start over again so that you can do things better next time. If you’ve been struggling for years in your relationship, leaving it may make you feel better. Sadness is normal, so you should embrace it with all your heart. However, you shouldn’t allow your ego to feel hurt. Humans don’t belong to other humans. We are all free to come and go. Just let go and make room for someone new to come into your life. The reward could be huge.
