ASK GABI: Breaking up is hard to do

By Gabi Piña

Ending a long-term relationship can be just as hard, if not harder, than starting one.

After the slow death of the relationship’s passion, most people find it very difficult to let go of all established feelings.

Whatever may have caused the demise of the partnership, it all links back to one thing: change.

Change happens, folks. It’s a part of our daily lives and quite inevitable.

Couples start fighting because of it and blame one another for their failed relationship. Yet most people are scared to leave their comfort zone. They decide to settle without thinking what’s best for them as an individual.

Maybe your relationship isn’t completely doomed and still has a small chance of survival. Take some time away from each other and seriously evaluate the pros and cons of being a couple. It might sound naïve, but it really helps put things into perspective.

If creating a list of reasons why you should still be together doesn’t work for both people, then maybe the time you took away from each other will help. Sometimes all a relationship needs is a little space.

Most of us tend to over-analyze every little detail in our lives. This leads to the deadly destruction of many relationships. Instead of overreacting and taking extreme steps to try to mend a romantic bond, make baby moves.

At the end of the day, what matters most is your individual happiness. Figure out what’s best for you and everything else will fall into its proper place.
