5 Ways You Should Never Break Up With Someone

This may sound like a cliche, but breaking up with someone is really hard to do.

Breaking up with someone is a difficult thing to do. There are a lot of feelings involved and if you're the one initiating The Talk, the possibility of hurting another person will keep you wide awake for nights. If only there's a way to lessen the pain, right? The thing is, you can't and there's no way to stop a heart from breaking. The only thing you can do is to at least give the other person some sort of clarity. So for the sake of clarity, don't resort to these things when you want to break up with someone.

1. Through text, call, chat, or a letter. Yes, there's a lot of ways to keep in touch with someone nowadays but that doesn't give you the right to call it quits by using the FB Messenger. Unless you're living in New York and the other person's here in Manila, doing the breakup online or via a heartfelt letter just isn't right. Do it in person and talk him through it. At least be there to hold his hand and share his feelings even for the last time.

2. Going all MIA after X days of dating. Whether you were just dating or you were official, have the decency to tell him in person that you're calling it off. Don't leave him hanging on to any amount of hope that you'll get back to your senses and everything between the two of you will be fine again. The other person's going to get it soon, yes, but don't you think stringing him along and letting him chase you for answers is just wrong?

3. Cheating with someone. While this is a surefire way to have the other person split up with you, it's also damaging. The situation will just lead to more questions, like "Why did you do it?" or "Is something wrong with me?" There's a chance that the other person's going to blame himself for the cheating and that's just not fair. If you feel trapped and you want to be left alone, don't go looking for comfort in someone else's arms. Gather up the courage and tell the other person what's wrong.

4. During a date. Don't give the other person false hopes. If you planned the "date" or the meeting to talk about ending your relationship, tell him beforehand. It's just cruel to allow him to savor dinner and laugh during your conversations then shut him down in the end.

5. Publicly. Isn't this supposed to be common sense? You won't know how the other person is going to react to a painful situation, so do it somewhere the 2 of you can be left alone.

The thing you should remember when breaking up with someone is that you should aim to give them a good memory of your relationship at least. It's already difficult to face the breakup itself, and when you do it in such a merciless way, the scars will be deeper and will take a longer time to heal.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
