What are some ways to be civil during a bitter breakup?
After a breakup, it’s tough to face your ex. Here are some ways to combat the hurt and stay civil:
1. Remember the good: You and your partner didn’t always hate each other. Recognize that your relationship didn’t work out, but that doesn’t mean you two have to be enemies.
2. Think of your surroundings: You likely share many parts of your life with your ex. In Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s case, they share very similar careers. Take a note from them to stay mature and professional and work together when you need to, for the sake of everyone around you.
3. Apologies feel good: Sometimes clearing the waters with an ex is a great way for you to move on with your life and feel better about yourself. Take the initiative to talk things out, and you may even be able to be friends one day.
