What to do when your ex wants to get back together

See also

One of the most confusing events in life can occur when your ex decides to try to come back into your life. Most often this can create a moment of silence and sometimes it can create an emotional eruption, especially if wrong was done. However, most people are unaware why their past relationships never worked out to their liking. That’s just the nature of life though.

Being together and breaking up is a part of life. It’s like learning how to walk for the first time, and then all of sudden you fall; except most likely people can’t recall that feeling of success and failure at such a fragile age. But you can remember when a break-up occurs. But the reason why this ‘ex’ did not make it further into your life is because he or she doesn’t belong in your life anymore, at least romantically.

You gave him or her your world, heart, and soul, and yet they didn’t care enough to reciprocate for whatever the reason was. You bent over backwards and most likely sacrificed many things they did not approve of. Some even may have felt that they carried more bricks on their back in order to keep the relationship together.

So if you find your phone ringing and see his or her name pop up on the caller ID, put in your mind exactly why they’re not current in your life anymore. He or she does not deserve your respect, heart, and trust. And the most notorious feeling one might get from contact with your ex is old feelings. So does that mean you should go for it? It’s completely natural for old feelings to arise when in contact with your ex, but the most strengthening feeling of all is the power to see past those feelings and realize that you are much happier alone or with someone else than you were with them.
