Exhausting, but Worth It
Be gentle. Remember that no matter what article you've read to help psyche yourself up, it's still going to be that person you fell in love with however long ago. They may have changed, you may have changed, you both may have changed. That is besides the point (unless they are psychotic or serial killers). They are still human beings and be respectful of others feelings. Always be gentle but DON'T prolong the pain with indecisiveness. It's unattractive, quite bimbotic, ridiculous and trust me, when all is said and done, your tact, gentleness and firmness/constancy by sticking to your guns will be what he or she will remember you by. We all have memories. Some of them are very painful. Don't create more of those for others or yourself. Time will heal with your consideration. Some wounds take many decades to heal and some never do. Not to sound terribly dark, but don't be one of them. Be kind!
