First, you have to ask yourself if they’re worth remaining in your life. Most of the time the answer is no, otherwise you wouldn’t have broke up in the first place, right? My relationship with my ex’s are for the most part non existent. I talk to only one, and usually it’s about video games and such. I don’t have any ounce of romantic feeling towards him that I once had, because I am married to the most amazing guy on the planet and he’s all I need.
I am not really sure why I have kept him around all this time. At first it was because I was still in love with him when he broke up with me and I kept waiting around on the back burner like a doormat since he said it wasn’t the end of “us.”
But now it’s not like that at all.
It’s really a rather weird predicament. First love, first one to completely crush me. Yet, I think I keep him around as a constant reminder of why my life is better off without him as a significant other. I think that’s the only reasonable explanation I can think of.
Do you keep any of your ex’s around?
