Dating ex again
If they see your ex-turned-partner making your life brighter, odds are they'll eventually come around and drop the whole "THIS IS A HUGE MISTAKE" shtick. They want to be there for you, so them be—even when you're going against their advice, and even if it means swallowing a little pride.
It's so important to be open with each other about your past baggage so everyone is happy and on the same page.
Of course, even the messiest or most involved of breakups could ultimately lead to a lasting love, but fully separating from your ex and getting a taste of life on your own could lead to a lot more insight about who you are and what you want when reuniting.
There are times in life when, even if you're not sure whether Round Two with someone will work out, you've got to give it one more shot just so you know without a doubt whether you can or can't be happy together.
This is especially true in a relationship that ends abruptly.
So have you ever felt like getting back with an ex?
