‘Make peace with your past’ the cliche is probably as old as time itself. Time itself has revealed that it heals all the pain… well to those who confront their pain and deal with it. Time is the constant you are the reactant! So the sooner you react and deal with source of your pain the sooner you will heal. So yes… ‘make peace with your ex’ because he/she is part of your past, a past that can never be escaped nor erased.
You might be reading this thinking maybe I am probably asking you to dine with your ex … No! It’s no secret breakups can leave you hurt bad, emotionally, psychologically or even physically. It’s just their nature. I am simply saying with those injuries you cannot be genuinely happy in your new relationships without fully and properly dealing with that past hurt. You should be able to coexist with your ex peaceful and should leave you feeling indifferent when you cross paths… that would reaffirm that you really so over him/her.
