Breaking up is hard to do

It is never easy to break up with your significant other. Regardless of the reason. But, there is a right, safe way to break up. Follow these steps and don’t forget to ask for help from a friend, family member, or someone else that you trust if you think that you may be in danger before breaking up.

Be honest with yourself

Be honest with yourself- Are you happy? Do you feel safe? Are you turning to other people for support? It is probably time to consider parting ways. Don’t tell yourself that it will change or that it’s not that bad. If you are having doubts then go with your gut and accept that breaking up is probably the best option.


If you feel safe around your partner, then it is always best to choose a place that is a little more private. Breaking up during lunch at school or at a friend’s party can be embarrassing and hurtful to the both of you.

Be honest with your partner

There is no need to make up a false reason for the breakup or “ghost” your partner. Be honest as to why you are breaking up with them.

Supported breakup

Do you feel as though you will be in danger if you break up with your partner? Then have someone with you. Never put yourself in a position where you can be hurt.

Be kind

You probably had a great time together so there is no need to be cruel. Remember to be sensitive to your partner’s feelings even after the breakup.
