When the phrase “break up” is mentioned most people immediately think of the early rock/pop song Breaking Up is Hard to Do. For most of us this is absolutely the truth. It is difficult to end a relationship with someone we have grown close to. Sharing ups and downs, laughing, crying and just relaxing – all of these things bring two people very close, emotionally and mentally. Only on rare occasions are two people able to break up without hard feelings or sadness. Many people believe that parting as good friends, on good terms, is not the same as really breaking up.
Over the course of centuries, as men and women have spent free time together, dated, became engaged and eventually married, couples have developed ways to break up. Some of these methods have been quite creative. One of the worst things one person can do to another is just leave, suddenly and without explanation. It’s much better to talk about the possibility of break up; giving the other person a bit of warning about what may be taking place. there are many songs that suggest on how to leave your lover. Unfortunately, most of the suggestions in this tongue-in-cheek song are drastic and sudden, not really creative and far from considerate.
" A break up is like a broken mirror. It is better to leave it broken than hurt yourself trying to fix it "
