It is extremely heart-breaking to realize that it is not working between two people anymore. However, when you have to break up and finish things, the way you do it really matters because that leaves a lasting impression. The person will probably hate you for a while but they will always remember you for being decent enough to break up properly. Here are a few things that you must do to break up respectfully.
Have the courage to speak.
To break up respectfully, you must have the courage to bring that thing up. You have to let your partner know that you are considering this. You have to make the signs obvious and you have to let them see it. You can do so by mentioning one of the reasons infront of them to bring their attention to the areas your relationship is suffering. This might even help you because your partner could end up thinking that the breakup is justified and in that case, they would have less trouble moving on.
