Goodbyes are hard for everyone no matter where you stand in life. This post would be a little of a flashback to me. I am sure we all have the not-so-successful love story, right? Well, even I had one and I still, to date like, admire and respect that person.
Now, this present day I wouldn’t say I love him but that love outgrew and turned itself into much of concern and respect to each other. I guess it is the same with him too. As we grew older, we realized, even though we couldn’t make it, it is ok to be in touch.
Ending a relationship on a bad note is the worst thing that could happen. But I guess, I got lucky with this. Having to move away on a mutual note is the biggest blessing ever. And having his call/message on my phone even after years of moving apart is bliss!
Goodbye for good:
For a breakup, there might be many reasons and even ours was no different. But I guess it takes two mature people to break upon a mutual note and not have hard feelings for each other is the rarest thing possible.
I don’t want to go into detail about my breakup story but just look at the positiveness that we still have around. For a breakup, there might be many reasons but all it takes that One reason to keep in touch and know what the other is up to.
In this social media age, it is nearly impossible to hide our lives from the world. Well, if you are a social media person like me. Looking at each other pictures on stories and posts and not feeling sad or having any other negative feelings, is where you have matured enough to enjoy the success of the other person!
But finding happiness in those things matters. You would reach a stage where you still talk, message, still laugh at the old memories.
This is what matters right? That person might not be with you, besides you as your life partner. But that is a person whom you can look up if you need anything or just wanted to talk to. (Calling that person at appropriate time matters, though)

interesting topic… so candidly n sweetly uv spoken about it. I too believe in letting go on a good note… after all we all deserve a proper closure.
Sometimes the best thing to do is also the hardest- breaking up is always terrible especially in that moment but sometimes it is so essential. You’ve really captured that feeling
It is difficult to talk about break ups so easily. You have written a very candid post opening up about your past and relationship and ending it with positivity. You have rightly said sometimes you can say goodbye on positive note also.
Wow! That’s such a wonderful read, I love the Positive note while drifting apart. Leaving each other’s life with Mutual consent is surely bliss.
Lovely read. ?
I am going through this situation, ending a 5 year old relationship… it’s difficult,,,
Loved your candid and refreshing take on a breakup. I always admire anyone who can do what you did. I believe in closing doors I will no longer be walking through.
Your bold declaration of your feelings from the past and now shows how much your relationship has matured. I’m so happy that to see that a break up didn’t rob you off such a wonderful person. Stay blessed, both of you!
Not many people can move forward without bitterness in their hearts. So it’s wonderful that you continue to be on cordial terms.
Positive and inspiring. Love the way you happily let go of a past relationship with warmth, I guess not just for a lover but this applies to everyone, every memory and especially lost friends.
Staying in touch with an ex speaks volumes about the health of the relationship and the respect both of you had for each other as individuals coz that does not go away just because you realise that you may no longer work together as a couple. And some of these can become your biggest cheerleaders and support because they truly like you. Not every breakup has to be bad.
And sadly, not every breakup that was not bad results in one staying in touch.
I truely agree to what u have said, sometimes its just difficult to explain what an ex can be to you and you have made it easy for everyone to understand.
Bidding good bye is really difficult but you have put it so well on a positive note. Inspiring
I’m out of words as it’s beautiful and emotional. I have been there so I can feel it.
A very honest and candid post. Breakups need not always be about negativity. Being cordial is not easy but is possible. It depends on the individual.
I appreciate what you have written. It is difficult to be in touch if you were in relationship with that person even after you moved out. But happy to know that you managed to do that.
People don’t usually talk about their exes or even their past relationships openly. You have shown that it is possible to break up on a positive note.
Well, I wish all exes had a positive ending like yours. It is said one should not burn one’s bridges. I admire the way you have shared your positive feelings as most of us tend to share everything negative abput such relationships. But times are changing and the new generation forgives and forgets and remain as friends.
It’s wonderful to know you’re able to close relationships on happy notes – it take immense maturity, strength and a beautiful heart. I try doing so too, I’d hate to break things off with anyone at all on a negative low.
Really, saying goodbye to someone can be hard but sometimes we have to do things that we never wanted to make. Lovely post.
Love the honesty in coming up with this. Ending relationship on happy note is something that’s rare but glad it is doable
That was a very candid piece. Yes breaking away from relationships is a difficult task but it sis always for the good, rather than waiting for it to turn too toxic.
There is always an end to a toxic relationships
I am friends with a couple of my exes and have completely cut out the others. I think it really depends on the nature of the relationship!
