Do you feel like you are backtracking in your breakup?
So you're going through a breakup and feel like you are backtracking...
Maybe you're missing your ex or you're having a hard time focusing on the reasons why you shouldn't be together...
You are NORMAL.
You are HUMAN.
There were good parts of your relationship or else you wouldn't have stayed.
You are allowed to reflect and think about the good times.
Now, I don't recommend getting stuck in the good memories.
Instead, try to shift your thoughts back by following up those memories with:
...AND here are the reasons we broke up
...AND here are our incompatibilities
...AND here are the qualities that I want in a partner that my ex didn't have.
There's no shame in remembering the good times, but to keep ourselves on the path of healing we need to shift our thoughts back!
