Breakups are bad, breakups are brutal, breakups are tough. Don't get me wrong, there is no such thing as a "good breakup" even when people say they're fine and they're still friends, breakups hurt regardless. But there's always a right way to do things, no matter how strange the thing is. There's no need to have any animosity in the breakup, every breakup can be made easier, both people can still walk away with their respect and dignity intact, if they just try to be calm and listen to reason. I've made a list of ways, ways to exit a relationship without losing any dignity or respect, let's begin.

10. Make your reasons heard, loud and clear

Make sure to talk to each other about the reasons, reasons why it has to end. It hurts a lot when a person doesn't have closure in life, everyone needs closure or they're stuck in a very negative state of mind for a long time, looking for answers. Make sure that you talk it out, in a non-aggressive manner. You won't be with each other anymore, but you can certainly make sure your memories don't get damaged along with the breakup, you need to make sure that you don't accidentally fall into each other's bad books in the long run. You two will always be able to walk by each other smiling, without having to hide from one another or feel guilty about it.

9. Make sure it's in person

I've seen a lot of people break up over text messages and it's just horrible. My ex broke up with me over a text, and I was just shocked and stunned for a good hour. I kept scratching my head thinking about it. About how someone could just write a few lines of text and end things forever? How can someone just forget about everything we shared and not even give me the courtesy of saying goodbye in person? It's very immature and pretty painful, have the guts to talk about it in person, don't let them feel used, don't let them think less of themselves. Trust me, text breakups are the worst kind!
