You’ve done it. You’ve been thinking about it for a long time, and you’ve done it. You’ve left your relationship. You have no idea where your life is going now, but you know you’ve done the right thing.
Then, your ex texts you asking to catch up. You figure, what’s the harm, right? Wrong. Here are eight reasons you should let your ex stay in your past:
1. You left for a reason.
Remember all those nights you lay awake thinking, all of those days you spent at work daydreaming of a new life and all of those long conversations you had with your BFF about what you should do? The pro and con list you wrote where the cons outweighed the pros proved that you left your ex for one — if not many — reasons. Don’t go back on them.
2. You’ve spread your wings.
You’ve booked that trip you’ve wanted to go on forever, and you’re spreading your wings across the world. You’re exploring not only other countries and cultures, but you’re also exploring who you really are at your core. After all, we’re all guilty of losing our identities at some point, and our souls always call us back to ourselves.
