How to End a Relationship Without Losing Mutual Friends
Relationships are bonds that are formed over a gradual period of time, and it does not involve just two people, rather it involves people that are close to both of you, people whom you two include in your life once you enter into a relationship with someone.
When the unfortunate times come, to call it quits, which could be due to a million reasons but has a single conclusion, comes the time when many of your common friends have to pick sides too.
Therefore to help you through such turbulent times so that you can retain your mutual friends and cherished friendships, we have for you, few tips and pointers that you can take care of and be able to pull through the transition period as smoothly as you can.
The first thing that you need to take care of is to not talk about the break up so much, and avoid the topic completely as much as you can. Your mutual friends will need time to adjust around the fact that the two of you are no longer together and that might take some time, plus it would only make things more awkward if you just keep talking about such things.
The next thing that you should keep in mind is that you should not trash talk about your ex. Your mutual friends loved you both dearly and any sort of bitterness is not going to help your case at all so try to keep things civil and fond. Plus there are very good chances that all that you say will be conveyed back to your ex, so be mindful of what all you are saying in front your mutual friends.
Try to go out of your way to keep in touch with them. Chances are that they will not know how to broach the topic of breakup around you, or will not know how to approach you, so if you feel that your mutual friends are really important then you should try your level best to be the bigger person in all situations.
If you have already moved on and are seeing someone else then you should try your best to keep the two worlds apart, let your new lover not meet your mutual friends for that may only lead to comparisons and talks that might not be the topic of choice for your lover and might lead to a rift between the two of you, and that is something that we do not want.
Try to avoid awkwardness at get together where your ex has been invited too. Be as civil as you can and try to take the higher road when it comes to it. For all you know, with time gradually things will take their due course and as things come and go, you will be able to find that middle path that will help you make the transition easier and smoother just the way you've always wanted it to be.
