5 steps to end a relationship with no regrets
Are you wondering how to end a relationship with no regrets?
Are you sure that the person you are with is not the right one for you?
Are you desperate and want to find out if you are doing the right thing?
Do you realize that if you don’t do it right, you could leave your person devastated?
Ending a relationship without regrets is entirely possible, and as in an ideal world, any relationship would end.
So how do you end a relationship and walk away with your head held high?
Here are 5 steps to ending a relationship with no regrets
1. Make sure you are doing your best.
If you want to end a relationship with no regrets, it is very important that you do everything in your power to make it work.
Many people walk away from relationships without really doing an honest job. They leave because their guy doesn’t understand their feelings or their girl won’t let them go out with the boys on the weekend.
In the words of Arianna Grande: “Thank you, the next one!”
But what if there is a hidden gem beneath this superficial problem that you don’t see because you just get up and get out of the relationship? What if your guy doesn’t understand your feelings but he loves you madly and would like to find out how to do it, but he needs you to show him?
My friend once said to me in the face of my sadness, “I don’t know what to do !!!” and he didn’t. He had a better idea after I showed him.
So, make sure you don’t break up with someone just because you have a superficial feeling. Do the work, go in depth, talk to yourself about the things that frustrate you and see if you can fix them so that you can move on together.
Wouldn’t you hate to see your person with someone else who is the person you wanted but never asked?
2. Do it for the right reasons.
When thinking about how to end a relationship without regrets, make sure that you are doing it for the right reasons. If you end your relationship because someone else is around, don’t do it. The grass isn’t always greener, no matter how great it looks right now.
If you end your relationship because your friends or family are telling you to do it, then do NOT do it. It’s your relationship and you need to find out if this person is right for you.
If you end your relationship because your person isn’t making enough money, isn’t hot enough, or is listening to weird music, then don’t do it. Just because someone doesn’t fit the social ideal of the perfect person doesn’t mean they couldn’t be the perfect person for you.
Make sure that you are ending your relationship for the right reasons, that you have thought about it, and know that this person is not right for you. If you don’t, you may always regret it!
3. Don’t be a ghost.
If you want to end a relationship and you feel good about it, don’t go away.
Ghosting seems to be all the rage these days – men and women disappear without saying a word to their partner. Be it because they’re afraid to face someone, or because they’re too lazy to deal with it, or because they’re just too busy, people just disappear, never to be heard from again.
And while this may feel good right now, I can promise you that one day you will regret it.
You will regret treating someone with so little respect because you know that you hurt them deeply and that you could have done things differently. Once you have someone’s mind, you can’t take it back. You will always be the person who did this.
So if you are considering ghosting your person, don’t. I can promise you that one day you will regret it, very much indeed.
4. Allow them to speak their minds.
When you break up with someone, it’s important that he or she can talk to you about your decision to end the relationship.
People like to process breakups, and whether the relationship ended abruptly or died a slow death, it’s important that each of you have the opportunity to discuss it with the other.
I’m not saying that it has to be talked through over and over, but giving the other a chance to say what needs to be said is a very important part of ending a relationship with no regrets.
5. Do it to the other.
If you’re still wondering how to end a relationship with no regrets, here is the gold standard for it.
The very best way to end a relationship with no regrets is to treat your person the way you would like to be treated.
That’s not to say that unless you’re the type of person who verbally wants to process a breakup, you won’t let your partner do that. What I mean is that I am sure that if the shoe were on the other foot, you would want to be treated with kindness and respect. You wouldn’t want your person to go away or talk about you behind your back. You’d love to say your part and move on.
So think carefully about how you would feel if someone broke up with you and how you would like to be treated in the process.
Thinking beforehand about how to end a relationship without regrets is a great way to ensure your relationship ends well.
Having regrets about the end of a relationship is something you have to live with forever. And I can promise you from my own experience that you don’t want that.
So make sure you’re not giving up too quickly, that you don’t leave, that you are doing it for the right reasons, and that you are allowing them to say what they need to say.
If you do these things, you will be able to move forward with a clear conscience and find the love of your life.
Good luck! You can do it!
