Breaking up is never really an easy thing for anyone to just go through. This is especially true if there are still a lot of lingering feelings involved that need to be addressed. But in spite of the negative nature of every breakup, it doesn’t always have to be so bad. You just have to make sure that you are going about it in the right way.
If you are the one who is ending the relationship, it’s perfectly normal for you to still have some feelings left over for your ex. This is especially true if the two of you happened to be in a relationship for a very long time. If you’re just curious about how they might be doing because you still care about them after the breakup, it’s okay to reach out to them to just check in. There doesn’t have to be any malice or ulterior motives behind reaching out to them other than just wanting to know if they’re okay.
