A break up is not always an easy experience to go through. Deciding to leave someone in a relationship takes a lot of worry and concern. Some people make the decision not to take the plunge out of pity for a partner or unsure of what the future may hold. But if breaking up is the right decision to make, you need to be aware of the following realizations:
Your character will not defined by your decision.
Some people are afraid to make the first move to break off the relationship because they do not want to be branded as the bad person. There are fears about what others will think about that prevents them from making the right decision. People should be aware that just because you decide to leave from a bad relationship would make you a bad person. Consider breaking up as a selfless act that you do for the both of you. Instead of staying in a wrong relationship, you are giving each other another chance to look for a better partner that will make both of you happy.
You are responsible for your own happiness and peace of mind.
Before you doubt getting out of a bad relationship, always consider that your own happiness and peace of mind depends on your own actions. If you think that you will be happier when you get over your current relationship, then take the next steps into making that possible. If that means breaking off the relationship, then so be it.
You cannot control what others will feel.
Breaking off from a relationship is not dependent on other people’s feelings. Just because people feel bad about it will prevent you from making that decision, even if it is the right one. Be aware that the decision will be making is mainly between you and your partner. You should not let how others will think about your decision prevent you from making the right one.
