There are hardly any breakups that aren’t drama-free. Breakups are painful affairs; they overwhelm us with emotion and despair and bring the worst in us. It’s hard to get control of ourselves in these situations, but if we can exercise some restraints, we can leave a decent and lasting impression on our exes.
Here are four ways to end your relationship with your ex with class:
Resist The Urge To Bash Your Ex.
Adhering to this rule will be hard especially to those who have been wrong, done something wrong, or got dumped, or all of the above. But, you will come out classy if you can resist your urge to talk ill or bash your ex. Sure, you can talk about your grievances to your friends and family, that’s why they are here for. But, by spreading the word that you broke up because he or she cheated on you with a friend of your is just plain ridiculous. Don’t make folks think that you’re the victim here, and when they why you broke up, and they will just tell them that things didn’t work out. And, by the way, don’t ever talk about your sex life with your ex. Ever!
Don’t Get Your Friends Involved
One big painful consequence of a breakup is that sometimes you’ve to let go some friends to keep your sanity intact. It’s recommended that you don’t be mutual friends with ex’s friends. Your splitting up should be all about moving on to the future, not about taking sides. Even if your friend's circle dwindles in size, it is still better than hanging out with your ex’s friends. It’s fine to friends who are sincere in supporting you in this critical moment and let go of certain friends for the greater good. We aren’t asking you to let go of all of your ex’s mutual friends, but if you’re taking advantage of your friendship to keep tabs on your ex, it’s a bad move.
Leave Your Problems at Home
It’s crucial that you don’t talk about your love life at work or have a conversation about it with your boss or coworkers. Not gossiping about your ex and relationships should be one of you top professional priorities. We understand that it’s hard to bury your harrowing breakup without sharing it with someone for 8 hours straight, but there is a silver lining to it. If you occupy yourself with work, it will get your mind rid off the heartbreak, allowing you to be more productive at work.
Avoid Indulging in Crazy Behavior
Breakups make us angry, depressed and desperate, and can sometimes make us snap. We start acting crazy and do things that are entirely misaligned with our character. We are talking about doing silly stuff, like calling or texting your ex incessantly, driving to your ex’s home or workplace in the middle of the day, and so on. We know you miss your ex, and can’t resist seeing or talking to him or her, but once you broke up, leaving it all aside.
Breakups suck. Whether you broke up or you were the victim, it’s best to sever all connections with your past relationship, and take the high road. Find someone new to fall in love with and move on.
