What Causes a Breakup

There are countless reasons for a couple to go their separate ways.

Whether you’ve been cheated on, the passion has died, or you’re moving far away from one another, the end result is always the same.

Being the person who got broken up with is definitely more devastating than being the one who does the breaking up, but both sides come with their own challenges.


If you’re still committed to the relationship but your partner decides it’s time to call it quits. All those invested emotions are shattered and you struggle to find ways to stay strong. Stay strong and act with dignity after the painful phase is finally over.


Heartache Turns You Into a Wretch Wreck

The hurt is unbearable and you might find yourself begging for another chance to make things work.

It’s natural to think that maybe if you changed your ways, did something different, or tried harder that you could sort out the problem. You might skip this stage and go straight to being defensive. Whatever you do, just realize that you need to act with dignity. You and your self-esteem is something you need to take care of.


Urge to Take Revenge Can Get Over You

The urge to take revenge overwhelms you to the point where you decide to get back at your ex in some way. Your frustration may drive you mad and you forget to act with dignity.

Normally you either try finding another partner to make them jealous. There is a likelihood that you would actually go out of your way to bring carnage into their life.

For the sake of your own sanity, you need to accept that it’s over and move on with your life.


Pick Yourself Up

If they don’t want to fight to have you in their world then you shouldn’t care about them either. The fact is, you deserve better. Get angry, cry, let all your emotions run wild, then pick yourself up and find something productive to focus on.


If you’re the one who has made the choice to end the relationship, you can’t help but feel guilty. You feel like you’re a terrible person for causing someone that kind of hurt.

You may even find yourself regretting your decision and questioning whether you should try to get back together with your ex or not. This is understandable as emotions can be confusing sometimes and we don’t always know what we want. But if you were willing to let your partner go, they couldn’t have been that special to you.


Do Yourself & Your Ex a Favour

Act with dignity and do yourself and your ex favour, just move on. Clinging to an idea that is quite possibly already dead, only ends up hurting both of you even more.


Sometimes breakups do happen in the early stages of a partnership when you’re both still trying to figure things out.

If this happens but you just can’t stand to be apart from each other. It’s up to the both of you to decide if you should try to work things out.

Relationships are complicated. If there’s a legitimate reason why you should be together, then don’t let one little breakup get in the way of that.
