Why you should leave your Past and Move On

If you are thinking to give your ex a second chance or are not sure what you do, you need to give a thought to the pros and cons of having them back. Remind yourself of the number of reasons why you and your ex broke up in the first place. Here are some reasons to leave the past behind you and move on. (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

Are you Sure your Ex has Changed?

If your ex seems to be desperate to change things if you let them take another chance, you may still go with it. But, this would be at your own risk. Make sure that you do not fall for their tactics lest they end up taking advantage of you. Just be sure that they have changed for the better if not worse if you are equally wanting to have them back. But, we dont recommend that you let them in. (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

You will Be Up against the Same Issues, Again

Do you want to run into the same problems all over again? By letting your partner into your life again, you would be making yourself face the same things that made your life difficult.  (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

Your friends might abandon you

If your friends know how miserably you were being treated at the time of the break-up, they would never enjoy the sight of you and your ex getting back together. When they hear you have given your ex another chance, they are going to be upset. For all you know, they may actually abandon you. (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

Will your Family Understand?

It could be awkward for you to make your family understand why your ex is back with you in the scene again. Even if your break-up was because of you, your family won’t see it that way. And, it will be very difficult for them to accept your ex back. (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

You May Have to Take Care of their Baggage

While you were apart, your ex might have acquired a whole new set of baggage. It could be loss, depression, a change in career, job loss, family problems, health problems, or another relationship. Are you ready for their extra baggage? (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

They Still aren’t Willing to Compromise

Another major reason you should not think of giving your ex another chance is when your ex is not willing to meet your needs and wants, or to comprise. If there is no willingness to accept each other, how can a relationship be healthy? (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

Both of You are on Different Pages

Do both of you want different things in your relationship? If your dreams and life’s objectives do not line up with your ex’s aspirations, it is trouble in the making. When you are sharing your life with someone, both of you must be on the same page of the book. (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)

Do They Only Want a Crying Shoulder?

Find a reason for wanting to be with your ex. Is it because you do not want to wake up another day feeling sick without him/her? Or is it because you love them truly? If you agree with the former, you are probably just feeling lonely. (Image source:Thinkstockphotos)
