Get An Ex Back  -  When is It Okay to Move On

After a painful break up, most people would automatically decide to get that person back. It is normal but there are some situations that I think, it will be better to just move on. Getting an ex back is not always the solution especially if you are faced on these kind of situation.

Here are some scenarios that I think it’s better to move on than to get an ex back:

1. You’ve been broken up for almost a year and every attempt to get your ex back is turned down.

Getting an ex back should also have its limits and honestly, by that time you should’ve taken the hint that your ex is not interested on getting back together. Yes, he or she may not just be ready to get back together but still it doesn’t mean that you should continue winning that person back. Open your eyes and accept the fact that your second chance with your ex isn’t going to happen yet. So instead of using your time and energy on getting a person who doesn’t want back in, use it to heal and move on.

2. When you broke up for the 3rd, 4th or 5th time because of the same reason/s.

It’s okay to get an ex back after your 1st or 2nd break up but the 3rd time; I think it’s better to stop trying to fix things that right from the start were not fixed. Breaking up because of the same problem over and over again only tells us that you and your ex haven’t learned from your past mistakes. It is better to live separate lives for the meantime to give each other time to breathe and process the break up.

Now, if after a few months you guys decided to get back together make sure that you discuss the relationship and your expectations from each other so you’re both in the same page on how you want the relationship to go this time, otherwise this will lead back to another break up.

3. If your relationship started out from cheating and your ex decides to be faithful or he/she cheated with you too.

We all have the right to love and be loved but if that relationship is hurting someone else then you and your partner isn’t achieving real happiness. Now, if that lover decides to break up and be with his or her original partner then it’s best to move on and respect that decision. Holding on will only earn you pain. Plus, don’t you think you deserve to be with someone that can be proud of you and show the world how much love you guys share?

Now, if your lover cheated then I guess your ex was not really into you like you are to him or her and sorry, this can be harsh, but if that person was able to cheat on his/her original partner then he/ she can do that to you too.

To sum this up, there is nothing wrong to want to be with your ex again. However, you should also be able to identify and tell yourself that the situation is not in your favor. We should also learn to accept defeat. Besides when you try to get an ex back, you should be ready to either face its two possible result which are getting your ex back or getting rejected.
