Ending a relationship can be tricky, especially an abusive one. Here are a few tips that may be helpful:
Consider location: Only break up in person if it is safe to do so because your safety is more important than their feelings. If you do want to do it in person, a good idea is to meet in a public place or have a trusted person nearby if you need them.
Plan: Sometimes writing down what you want to say beforehand can help you to collect your thoughts and not get overwhelmed in the heat of the moment. This can be done on your own, with the help of a friend or a trusted adult.
Take care of yourself! Break ups are hard and it’s normal to have lots of different feelings after. Keep connected to people, try to continue to do the things that make you happy like sport, gaming or writing.
If you are worried about your safety after the relationship is over it is important to remember your safety plan and talk to someone you trust.
