I commend those who move on without a second look at the past. It took me a long time to even get where I am now.
I believe exes can be friends. I feel like when you have a certain amount of love and/or trust there, it doesn’t leave because of a break up. If you were with a toxic person though, who didn’t truly love you, no. Y’all cannot be friends.
The reality of life is, not everybody in your life is permanent. Still, some people you meet and think “yea this person is gonna be around for a while” even though God has other plans. It’s hard to let go when you expected a lifetime with somebody. It’s hard to make those permanent changes to your life that make that a reality. They’re gone, and they’re not coming back… but why would you want that anyway?
