Why am I not getting over my ex? The question you ask yourself because everything seems so hard and you just can’t work out how to move on. Here are 5 major reasons why you are stuck and unable to move on from your ex.
1-You are lonely.
You are used to being with that person and talking to them, spending time with them. Maybe you had them around whenever you need them. You might have cut off friends or spent less time with friends during the relationship. Now feel like you are lonely. The best way to combat this is to make time for your friends and family again. Go out and do what makes you feel good and be surrounded by others.
2-You are still connected on social media or through friends.
You can see what they are getting up to and what they are posting about throughout the day. This is reminding you of them and is holding you back from getting over them. Don’t worry about burning bridges or looking like the bad guy, look after yourself first.
3- You lost confidence during the relationship.
If you started to feel unappreciated or unacknowledged by your partner while you were with them then it is likely that you blamed yourself. Maybe you lost some confidence. This is not a reflection on you and use this time to build yourself back up.
4- You are not accepting all the negative things and are only focusing on the good times you had.
This is illogical and it is vital that you work to recognise the reasons why they are not right for you.
5- You are grieving the relationship potential.
You are sad about all the things you could have been instead of acknowledging all the things that the relationship actually was!
