What to say when leaving a healthy relationship
I'm Dr. Juliana Hauser. And here's how to find the words and what to say when ending a relationship, but still wanting to have a friendship.
Breakups are never easy, but they don't have to be angry or bitter. Maybe you and your partner have reached a natural end
to your relationship and it's just time to say it out loud. Here's what to say when leaving a healthy relationship.
Thank you for taking this time to talk with me. We've been through so much. And I'm incredibly grateful for the time we've spent together,
but I believe our relationship has completed. There's no one to blame. But out of respect for myself and for you,
I think we should end this with the same love that we started with. I hope you understand and perhaps even agree.
But of course, I'm here to try and discuss anything that's left unanswered for you. However, if you feel physically or emotionally unsafe
with your partner, you don't need to have a conversation. And in fact, in some cases, it can be unsafe to do so.
There are many free resources available to help you exit their relationship safely. For emergencies, the National Domestic Violence Hotline
