The truth is the relationships we have in life last forever. Ultimately, moving on from a relationship that wasn’t working is about loving yourself. Believing that you deserve to be in a loving relationship with someone who shares your values and treats you well requires that you view yourself in a positive light.
It doesn’t make it right, but sometimes seeing someone else’s perspective can help you understand the events that unfolded better and make them less personal. When someone comes into your life who allows you the opportunity to experience love, that is always a true gift.
It can also be easier to forgive someone when you see them as a whole person. Part of maturity, however, is recognizing that love by itself isn’t always enough to make a relationship work.
When someone betrays the trust you gave, it is painful.
But letting what someone else did limit your ability to move forward means they still exert control over your life.
Politely let your ex know you need your space and would prefer not to be in contact for the time being.
