The last resort that everyone dreads is a break up. Going into a relationship you’re so focused on all the potential excitement that follows, that the thought of it ending doesn’t even cross your mind. But for some people, it sadly becomes a reality. Break ups can get ugly. Most of the times they’re far from civil. And they can drag on for quite a while. The reason behind all this volatility is that both people need closure. We tend to look for an easy way out, and in doing so, break up in the most indecent ways imaginable. In saving yourself from facing them, you’re actually being cruel.

You owe it to them, to end things in a befitting manner, rather than just getting it over with. You should never break up in any of the following ways:

  1. Don’t break up over texts/calls/emails

Nothing less than a face-to-face interaction is acceptable when it comes to break ups. You’re about to walk out of someone’s life, you can’t just casually drop a text to inform them of your decision. They deserve better. It’d mean that the relationship never meant much to you in the first place, and you think that a text or an email is sufficient to end it. This is downright cruel! No matter how well drafted your message is, it’d still be cruel. Give them the closure they deserve and NEED. If you have taken the decision, have the decency to face them and the consequences that follow.
