I was recently talking to one of my friends who just broke up with his long-term girlfriend. I asked him how it went breaking the news to her, he said “It went okay I guess…I mean, no one ever tells you how to break up with someone….so I just kinda fumbled through it. I just did the best I could, though I’m sure it could have gone better.”
Thinking about what he said, I knew that what he was saying was so true. People don’t know how to end a relationship with dignity and integrity. I know from my own personal experience. My (now-ex) husband informed me that our marriage was ending over tea in a Starbucks. Another long-term relationship of mine ended over Skype (neither were ideal, but the Starbucks one really takes the cake).
I get it…sometimes you have done everything you can to try and work on a relationship, yet it really just isn’t working out for you. For many people who have been with someone for a long time and still care about them, they usually want to end the relationship as pain-free as possible. They just don’t know how to do it (and they feel a little scared), so it comes stumbling out in this awkward, inopportune way.
So based on my experience (and my client’s experiences) of being dumped in ways that were less than ideal, I’ve come up with 5 tips that I believe allow you to get the job done with integrity, while minimizing the hurt as much as possible. If you can walk out of a break-up session with the other person sad, but still respecting you, don’t you think that’d be preferable? Here are 5 tips to help make that happen.
I hope these ideas help. Breaking up and being broken up with are never fun, no matter the situation. But by taking the above tips into consideration, it could prevent a bad situation from getting worse, and you can walk away with your dignity intact. Good luck!
