When you’re in a relationship and your boyfriend has to leave town for a trip or some other reason, you probably find it hard to watch him leave.
You may even feel alone because the time you would normally spend with your boyfriend becomes a void or a gap.
The funny thing is, when it’s you that has to leave town it’s not as hard to leave as it is to be left by your boyfriend.
When you’re leaving for a trip, leisurely or work-related, it’s easier to leave because you have something to look forward to or your time will be occupied for the most part.
Who Has It Easier In A Break Up?
Now, turning this to break ups, it’s also always easier to break up with a boyfriend than to be broken up with.
This obviously isn’t the case if you’re breaking up with your boyfriend because of cheating or some other wrong.
Truthfully though, there’s something about having control over the break up that gives you an element of ease. You weren’t blindsided by the break up, you thought the decision through, and you decided the best move for yourself was to move on.
With these things in mind, you obviously wouldn’t be as torn up over the break up since you’re the person that decided to end it.
So, it’s really true in many aspects actually, it’s always easier to leave than be left!
