7 Ways to End Your Relationship as Peacefully as Possible

- By

1. Acknowledge

Acknowledge that the relationship is really over. Come to terms with your own feelings and make a firm decision to end the relationship. Accept that your relationship is not working and make a firm and clear decision to break up. All relationships that come to end do so for different reasons.  Here are some common issues that end up breaking up a bond: you always feel frustrated, you find reasons to spend time apart, you wish your relationship was more like the way it was in the beginning, you changed your values, beliefs or goals to accommodate your partner with the hope that the relationship would get better but it didn’t, you have cut off close relationships with friends and family members to be with your partner, or you are being physically, emotionally or sexually abused.  Pinpoint the issues that are untreatable so that you have a solid foundation and reason for the break up.  Telling someone you want to break up just because “you’re not feeling ‘it’ anymore,” is a hard pill to swallow.  Respect your soon to be ex and give solid reasons for your actions.
