We have all ended a relationship at some point. There are different reasons to end a relationship and there are important things to know before you end a relationship. Not only should you know why you ended the relationship, but you should also know what to do before you end the relationship, while you end it, and after you end it. Throughout the process, help and support is also available to you to make the process as painless as possible.
Some of the reasons for ending a relationship include lack of communication, lack of honesty, conflicting viewpoints, and abuse. Communication is the cornerstone of a successful relationship, and without it, your bonds will break down. Honesty is another big one. If you or your partner are not honest with each other, how will you learn to trust each other in difficult times? If you don’t trust your partner and feel that you continue to distrust them, it may be time to end the relationship.
If the two of you have incompatible views, especially on some important issues such as children, religion, spirituality, and family values, you need to seriously think about whether or not you should continue the relationship. This is because along the way, when these issues arise, your true side will emerge and all the chaos will hit the fan. It is best discussed and removed in the bud now. Abuse is another important factor in ending a relationship. No one has the right to insult their partner, be it physically, mentally or psychologically. One of the main reasons for ending a relationship has to do with someone abusing the other person.
While you are ending your relationship, it is important to sever all ties with that person such as friends, family members, co-workers, etc. This is to prevent you from falling into the trap of wanting to get back together. Ask some trusted people you can talk to to help you with this process. There is also help and support for you to make the situation as painless as possible. Keep yourself busy after the relationship ends and surround yourself with people you know and trust. So be positive and connect with your family and community.
