    I believe the most important thing to take away from a relationship that ended is the lessons you learned about choices you made and why. Each of us selects our own friends, lovers, and spouse. With every relationship we have hopefully we gain some wisdom that helps us to make better selections in the future as well as determine what it is really want going forward.

    The most important thing to take away is you. You can't allow yourself to die because the relationship did.

    It's super important to not lose your cool.  Try to leave the situation as what it is:  a learning experience.  There's no sense in making the other person feel horrible.  Just learn your lesson and move on!

    The most important thing to keep in mind when ending a relationship is to be an adult about the situation.  Do not get on Facebook and start telling the whole world every piece of dirt and poor information you have about your ex.  There is no reason to add insult to injury.  I have had some terrible breakups, but I ended up with a great friend when it was over.  Some people make better friends than they do lovers, if they are adult about it.

    That love can come in many expressions and when you let go of someone, you are releasing them to be free to be who they really are. You can still love them. Remind yourself that this idea you created of this person is not healthy for you or him/her; for what ever reasons. They should both know that humans tend to love others for either a 'reason, season or lifetime'..then you decide which role you each must play in each others lives.  We are ever-changing beings and sometimes we should take the lesson, let go and experience what was truly destined. 1

    I think the most important thing to remember is that, more likely than not, you will cross paths often in the future and how do you want to feel when that happens.  No one enjoys the angry, bitter verbal banter or the written slurs.  Therefore, keep in mind that the breakup will affect the future.  Be polite and respectful but move on.  Then when your paths cross, you can at least be civil and it will make your whole life so much better!!

    Well, it depends on the relationship, there are no definit answer for it.  For example, if it is one of those relationsip where you guys are soul mate and still very much in love with each other, but must part due to certain reason, then just remeber what you once have, but don't struggle to hold on to something that is no longer there.  Also, when a relationship run its natural course, always knows where to let it go (PS: I usually make fun of guys that can't get over their ex girl friends by calling them nicknames such as "Nancy" "Girly man" "Snow White" "Cindy" "Cinderella" "Sleeping Beauty" ha ha ha) If a relationship is a mistake, then remeber the mistake learn from it and don't make the same mistake again

    The most important thing is that that never would back on that way and if heart is in pain tell your heart that is an experience of life face that.

    Make certain that you end it clean and try to do it without hurting the other person.

    You both have feelings and they have to be taken into consideration.

    If you feel like you've made a mistake you can't always go back

    To make sure you truly want to end it beforehand.  Because if you change your mind later and feel like you made a mistake by ending the relationship, often there has been too much damage caused by the breakup for the relationship to ever get back to what it was again.
