The continuous paradox of humanity. Amazing and terrible. All we want, yet what hurts us the most. Simple and challenging. Heartwarming and painful. We all go through love differently, but it’s also something that almost everyone can relate to. For me, romantic love has always been something that I thoroughly enjoy, but has never been a necessity. I’ve always been highly independent, but everyone wants love to an extent. You are in a very difficult situation. With the limited information provided, I have a few thoughts that I think could help. In making a decision of whether you should break up with your boyfriend of a couple months, I would submit these questions to you to ponder:
Now, moving on to addressing the potential feelings for the ex-boyfriend situation. My advice for this problem is to live your life with no regrets. If you still have feelings for him, tell him. Life is too short to regret something like this. Yes, it is scary to be that vulnerable, but it will be worth it in the end. Love is worth fear. If I were you, which I am not, I would end things with my current boyfriend because he deserves more than someone who may not consider him her first choice. Then, I would have a conversation with my ex-boyfriend about my feelings. I don’t know how y’all ended your relationship, but I would act on my current feelings for him. Ultimately, I think you should do whatever would make you the happiest, and it doesn’t seem like that is going to be staying in your current relationship. Relationships are supposed to make us better as people and add mostly positivity to our lives.
Obviously, there is no perfect relationship without any problems, but being in a relationship should bring you more happiness than unhappiness, and I think that if you are thinking about your ex, there is something missing in this relationship; therefore, it might not be the relationship for you. I hope this resonates with you and helped you in any way. Feel free to keep me updated with anything new that I can help you with!
