Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When your relationship ends without your permission or against your wishes, the last thing you want to do is give up. If you are still in love with your ex or have strong feelings about a future together then you're not really interested in ideas of letting go and ending the relationship. But, is that always the best answer for you? Are there times when the best answer is to NOT get your ex back?

Believe it or not, there are times when the healthier option is to move on with your life without your ex in it. I know that doesn't help you feel better right now but it could save you from making an even bigger mistake that will lead to even more heartache in the future by working to get your ex back when the best answer is to walk away. But, how you do know when it's time to leave and how do you know when you have the real deal that is very much worth fighting for?

Wouldn't it be great if all potential bad relationship partners came equipped with signs or tattoos on their foreheads that announced the potential problems? Life would be so much better that way wouldn't it? But even in bad relationships, there are generally still more than a few silver linings that make the experience worth the pain – even when it ends with your broken heart. That doesn't mean though you should go to any extraordinary efforts to save the relationship. It doesn't mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that the relationship was good or good for you. Here are a few questions you might want to ask yourself before you decide whether or not to work hard to get your ex back after a breakup. They could save you from even bigger problems in the future.

1) Does your ex make you feel better about yourself as a person?

2) Do you feel happy when you're with your ex – truly happy?

3) Do you bring out the best in your ex? Or, do you believe that you do?

These questions might not seem like much in black and white but they reveal a great deal about your relationship and just how healthy it really is. If you have been honest in answering and believe that your relationship is worth saving then your next step is to learn how to save your relationship after a breakup with:

Well it depends on what we broke up for in the first place. If it was another man then farewell so long and good bye. If it was over some minor issues then that should be taken in consideration.
