Life does not always go as planned and when things go wrong, it can be hard to walk away. Especially when you are in a relationship. Here are a few tips to help you walk away with dignity and be strong when things are not working out.
Stop Making Excuses
While it may be appealing to make excuses about why things aren’t going right, try your best not to. Trying to find reasons why its happening doesn’t change the situation, it only prolongs it. This just leaves more time in which you could potentially get hurt. Rather take the high road and admit that things aren’t working out. Be positive no matter what.
Let Go Of The Past
Very often in situations like this, you may find yourself reminiscing on times when things were better. However, you must be able to admit to yourself that those times were in the past, and are not an accurate portrayal of what is going on now. There is no way to go back to better times, so you must let go of them and stop trying to think you can create a time like that again. Have the knowledge that you did what you can, and walk away with dignity instead of staying in a relationship that makes you unhappy.
In any relationship, honesty is extremely important. This is especially true when a relationship is coming to its end. There is no point in lying to your partner about how you are feeling. Rather, take the time to tell them about your point of view on the situation. Don’t try to soften the blow to them, be completely and utterly honest, as this is the only way they will know how you are feeling. This may even give them the courage to give their opinion on the matter, and gives you both an opportunity to talk about it. However, try not to get too emotional, although it may be hard. In order for you to walk away dignity and strength, you must maintain an objective view about the situation, as this prevents you from being emotionally manipulated to stay.
Do What Is Best For You
When you come to care about a person, you tend to put their needs above your own. When it comes to ending things with someone, you cannot put their needs before yours. You are walking away because that is what will ensure the best life and how they may feel about it should not stop you. Recognize your own worth and needs, and do what will be best for you, regardless of the consequences.
Accept The Situation
You may find it tempting to deny what is happening for a long time, but at some point, you must come to the realisation that you cannot carry on like this. Accept what is going on, and decide what you are going to do about it. There is no reason to draw out an unhappy situation any further. In order to walk away with dignity and strength that you deserve, you should do what you have to, to get you to a better place.
