Learning To Let Go

No one likes walking away from someone that you love but let’s face it, not all relationships are meant to last. Sometimes we stay way past the point of when we should have left, don’t you think?

What are some of the signs that a relationship needs to be over?

You can’t stand the sight of them.  It just doesn’t feel good anymore.  There’s no more talking.  You’ve fallen out of love.  There are so many ways to know.  Most times we know it but we ignore it in hopes that it will work itself out.   It’s best if we just end it before we drag it out and make things even more difficult.

Now that we’ve explored some of the signs of letting go, what’s the best way to go about it? Someone told me that they were broken up with through a text message a few days go. smh We are GROWN. Adults should handle themselves accordingly. 
What’s a decent way to end a relationship?

Honesty and dignity would be the only way to end something.  As James Ingram says, “There’s no easy way to break somebody’s heart.” That’s the truth no matter what end you’re on in the situation.  Be decent even if it’s not a good situation.  You will be able to walk away with your head held high knowing that you were decent.

There is always some emotion attached to ending a relationship, especially if there are children.  

How have you handled ending a relationship where your children or the children of the person you were involved with were affected by the split?

We have to keep the lines of communication open for children.  Make sure that you are available to them and don’t leave them feeling alone due to being afraid of upsetting you.  Talk with them.  Love on them.  If the relationship was good, allow them to still have the relationship with the person if it’s doable.  Most of all, be very careful of how quickly you bring your kids around someone that you’re involved with.  Overexposure is not a good thing for children.  Be careful!
