relationships come with all kinds of issues and problems. there are times where you can work through them and times where you just need to let them go. something that I struggled with was knowing the difference.
the first step is assessing your situation. I want you to put away all biases and emotions by taking yourself out of the situation. take a step back from the relationship and look at it from an outsider's point of view. describe to yourself what is going on as if you weren't in the relationship. now ask if yourself if you, from the outsider's point of view, would want to be in that relationship. if the answer's no, i'm sorry my friend but it's time to move on.
you need to remember that you literally have ONE life and it's pretty short, so why surround yourself with wrong relationships that don't make you happy? that sounds kind of cringe, but it's true! realize your self-worth and know that you deserve more than a bad relationship.
it's hard to let people go out of your life, especially if you've grown close with them, but you just gotta remember your value. it's completely normal to miss someone and feel sad and angry for a few days. but there comes a time where you need to stop yourself and move on. just let it go. remember that they lost you, not the other way around.
once you've move on, BE MATURE. I can't stress this enough. what's the point of leaving a bad relationship, if you're just gonna be a bad person! don't go out of your way to be mean because you're better than that. take the high road and be nice. just be kind!
