In life, there are hellos, and then there are goodbyes. “Goodbye” is especially hard to hear if you’re the one being told it’s time to break up, but the person saying it is also carrying a great psychological burden. It’s very painful to know that you are hurting someone. To help make these break-ups just a little bit smoother, we present some things to be aware of that we hope you’ll remember when telling your partner it’s time to say goodbye.
