A key part of healthy break-ups involves being as clear and certain as possible to help promote a sense of closure as the relationship ends. When you are able to convey clear reasons for the end of the relationship, it can reduce a sense of uncertainty and help both people find closure.
It’s also important to acknowledge that break-ups don’t come with a how-to manual and sometimes there isn’t a clear reason for the end of a relationship. Sometimes break-ups can feel confusing and messy. If this is the case, try your best to hold space and empathy for one another, as you try navigating a really challenging situation. When you embrace sentiments of empathy and compassion, it can help promote healing and kindness amidst a difficult situation.
