If you're ready to end a relationship, consider how you can break up without conflict.

Steps One

Acknowledge that the relationship is really over. Come to terms with your own feelings and make a firm decision to end the relationship.

Step Two
Don't delay the inevitable. Once you decide to break up with your partner, immediately think about how, when and where you will take action.

Step Three
Make sure you're the one who personally delivers the news. Don't give a third party the opportunity to tell your partner that you want to break up before you have the chance to discuss the matter alone.

Step Four
Select a private place to meet with your partner to end the relationship.

Step Five
Find or schedule an appropriate time. Approach the topic when both of you are calm and rational. Don't announce your intention to break up during a heated argument or a moment of anger.

Step Six
Show your resolve by being firm, decisive and honest. Help your partner understand why you want to end the relationship. Be tactful, not brutal.

Step Seven
Remind your partner that you'll never forget the positive qualities in your relationship, but emphasize that you're ready to move on with your life.

Step Eight
Give your partner the closure that he or she needs to accept the breakup; answer questions and talk it over instead of leaving loose ends.

Step Nine
Stay positive as you both make plans to go your separate ways

Most importantly, be completely honest about your previous relationship to minimize the damage, and then chew it again.

Unfortunately, not everyone is out there to make us happy but our reactions can teach them that
they cannot get away with it. Schools will now be left to
draw up their own curriculum for the non-compulsory subject, which is the
inability to feel safe in one's body or to face other people. A classic case of what a health economist can contribute.
