Go shag ten other women they say. You'll stop caring about your ex and gain the skills to get her back, they say.
Today I saw something that reminded me of an inside joke with a certain ex of mine from early this year. I'm long past the 10 other women mark and I got to thinking about her today. I really liked her and it was pretty rough when it ended.
Could I get her back if I tried? Absolutely.
Do I want her back? No. I'm way happier with my life now and with my new girls.
But in a way, I do miss her. We had some good times and some good laughs. I thought about texting her because I had something funny to say but it's just not worth opening that can of worms again. So instead I took a moment of silence to reflect on the past and let it go. I wish her the absolute best in life and love even if she'll never know I feel that way.
No regrets. I'm glad we had what we had and glad that it ended when it did. The pain made us both stronger and eventually happier.
GFTOW everyone, it's awesome advice.
