7 Steps to being a better Ex

Break ups and divorces can be messy, but when one (or both) of the exes is behaving badly, the aftermath can be even messier. As much as we’d all like to have ourWaiting to Exhalemoment, there’s a more reasonable way to go about things than setting his stuff ablaze that’ll allow you to be a bigger person, a better ex, and maybe even make yourself a little happier in the process. So, get your big girl panties on and follow our tips to post break up bliss…or something close to it.

Step 1: Keep the Kids Out of It

Trashing your ex in front of the kids is bad enough, but using the kids to “punish” them is just as bad; if not worse. It’s never okay to keep your ex from seeing the kids because you’re sad, or mad, or hurt, or all of the above. So, keep your qualms between the two of you, and when it comes to talking about them in front of the kids, remember: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

Step 2: Don’t Use Money As a Weapon

Money. It’s one of the biggest culprits in a break up, which is why it’s often one of the first things exes think to use against one another. Hit ‘em where it hurts, right? And nothing hurts like your bank account being drained. If you or the kids actually need the money, that’s one thing; but don’t demand more because you’re trying to get back at him.

Step 3: Respect His Property

Speaking of Waiting to Exhale…. Yes, it would probably be at least alittlegratifying to take his things and load it into his car before lighting it all up (“Get yo s#!t!”). But at the end of the day that doesn’t really accomplish anything, unless your goal is to catch a couple of criminal charges. The better alternative? If you still have some items that belong to him, put them all aside — sans the lighter fluid– and ask him what he plans on doing with them.
Another part of property– the home. If he’s the one staying in the space you shared together, treat it as his…even if your name is still on the lease or mortgage. That means knocking on the door when you get there, and not going through drawers and cabinets as if it’s still yours.
