They’re an Ex for a reason
When I was in college, I had the most amazing boyfriend. We loved each other so much and had such a great future ahead of us that everyone else around us did too. He was sweet, kind-hearted, and beautiful inside and out. And then he cheated on me with my best friend’s sister. A girl who was barely an adult herself at the time!
Needless to say, this relationship ended up being quite toxic for all parties involved. But not all exes are like that; sometimes things simply don’t work out for one reason or another. Here are some reasons why an ex might be an ex: But first, be sure you are subscribed below.
Some people are, by nature, poisonous.
Some people are, by nature, poisonous. It might be because of their upbringing or the choices they’ve made in their lives. Sometimes it’s just bad luck that made them the way they are. Regardless of the reason, these people can be toxic to you and your relationships with other people—and it’s important not to let that fact blind you from seeing what’s right in front of your face: This person is not good for you at all!
Sometimes things are just not meant to be.
Sometimes, it’s best to accept that some things are just not meant to be. It isn’t an easy thing to do, but you will find that the pain subsides when you’re able to let go of someone who doesn’t belong in your life anymore.
You deserve better than this person, and if they can’t see that then it’s time for them to go. It’s important not to wait around for someone who has no desire or intentions of wanting a relationship with you. If they can’t make any effort at all on their part then what’s stopping you from moving on?
They’re an ex for a reason—let them be one!
Sometimes it’s better to leave things be.

When you have an ex who’s no longer a part of your life, but isn’t quite gone either, it can be difficult to know what to do next. You might feel like the most mature thing would be for them to disappear from your thoughts completely. But that doesn’t always happen. And even when it does, sometimes simply allowing yourself those brief moments of nostalgia can help you process your relationship and move on with your life without feeling like you’re forgetting something important. Trust me: I’ve done this many times myself!
No matter how much time has passed since you were together (or how badly they hurt you), there will always be some sort of connection between two people who once loved each other deeply enough to be together in the first place (even if they didn’t stay together). Sometimes it takes a while before either person realizes this; sometimes one person needs space while another needs closure before recognizing these things themselves; still, others may never fully understand why things ended or what went wrong between them until years later when looking back at old photos brings up feelings again…

An ex is an ex for a reason.
You can’t change people. You can’t force them to change. You can’t make them love you, or want to be with you, or want to be a better person. You can’t change their past and what they did in it. You can only change yourself for the future and how you act on it now.
And if someone wants those things from another person? Then they need to take the time and energy necessary for those relationships. Because I’m sure there are many great people out there who will give them that chance!
I know this sounds harsh but think of it this way: why would anyone want someone who doesn’t want them back? It’s always confusing when someone says “no”, right? Because we think “s/he doesn’t know what s/he is missing!” Or maybe even worse than that. We tell ourselves that s/he just needs more convincing before agreeing. Which usually means pressuring ourselves into something we don’t even want).
But if someone truly wants us then they won’t let us go so easily. Because they will fight tooth and nail until they get us back on their side again! And vice versa. If we really care about someone then there’s no way we’d let our relationship end without putting up a good fight first!
If you think relationships are easy, you’re doing it wrong!
Relationships are hard, and they take work. It’s not easy to be in a relationship with someone and have it work out. It takes effort and time, patience, communication, compromise and understanding.
- Love is why you’re with them in the first place.*You need to know that before you get into another relationship because otherwise you’ll never know if what they said was true.
There really are bad people in the world, and sometimes we don’t notice how bad they are until they break our hearts.
It’s important to be able to identify bad people. They’re not all that rare, and they can seem good at first. You might’ve even been fooled into thinking that you could change them. Because this is the kind of person who will make you feel like it’s your fault their behavior is so awful. But if you’ve ever dated a man who was abusive or cheated on you (or both), then chances are he was a bad person.
It is possible for people to learn from their mistakes, but if someone has hurt you once—and especially if they have done so repeatedly—they probably won’t stop being abusive or unfaithful. If this sounds harsh, it’s because there really are bad people in the world. We just don’t always notice how bad they are until they break our hearts.
It’s important to remember that the world is a big place and there are plenty of other people out there who can make you happy. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t give up hope! You will find someone else who appreciates what they have with you and won’t let it go so easily.
