Expanding on the life lessons from before, here’s a pithy phrase to keep in mind when you’re breaking up with someone.

If it doesn’t make you feel better, don’t do it.
Regardless of how much better it makes them feel.
Seriously.

You’re both going to be bad guys, so don’t lie down and be a doormat. Give yourself sympathy. Breakups ARE shitty.  That’s kind of the unavoidable innate nature of them, and you can’t make it happy and sweet and kind. Don’t try.
