3 reasons why you still cling to your ex
1) You never experienced a break up before
When you are on the first day or 1-month anniversary, you feel on top of the world. This world belongs to both of you. Sounds funny and cringe, right? Yet, that's how the life stage is. But, at some stage, you had to experiences fights, ups, and downs in your relationship. It's normal things that happened to every partner. But, if both of you had no understanding of each other, then you probably had to experience a break-up. A breakup is not something that you can cope with, if your the one who wants a break up then there's a possibility that you won't get hurt. But, if you are the one who is dumped by your lover, you will experience a real heartbroken and it will take a lot of time to heal.
Broken hearts took time to heal. There were stages for you to heal completely but sometimes it was not 100% heal. Sometimes, you focus more on the past and still cling on that memory, that is why you can't move forward. You believe that the past can be corrected, but, some broken pieces just can't be restored. The past is the past, the future is now. You should learn from the past. You still cling to your ex because you are still thinking that you can go back to the past. However, it does take time to recover, and sometimes the person you waited for is not really waiting for you, at the end of today, you had to keep moving on.
3) You expect too much from your relationship
Often, when you fall in love, you expect too much in your relationship. And when this happens, you tend to plan what your future is, your wedding, your kids, and so on. You have faith in that situation where you confidently think that your relationship will go well without taking any discussion with your partner. You still cling to him or her, because "YOU" want your relationship to go perfectly well with your own plan. Stop expecting too much from your partner and accept that we all had a difference. Respect that difference and flow with it.
