11. When You’re Prepared To Hear Things That You Might Not Want To Hear
So, you’ve met up with your ex for a drink and halfway into the conversation, they tell you that they’re getting married or their partner is pregnant… how are you going to handle that? Basically, you want to be very well prepared for whatever comes out of their mouth. Even if you know you no longer love them, that doesn’t mean hearing about them moving on with someone else is going to be easy.
12. When You’ve Learned To Forgive
It’s easier to hold a grudge than forgive. Forgiving someone who has hurt you is also just as hard as admitting that you were wrong and apologizing. However, before you can talk to your ex you need to know in your heart that you forgive them or, if necessary, are able to apologize. Being able to forgive and be secure in that forgiveness is essential before reaching out to an ex.
13. When It Feels Right
Only you know when it’s OK to talk to your ex again. Consider what it means, what you hope to get out of it, and how to go about it. So whether it takes you six months or six years before you’re able to talk to your ex again, don’t rush it. When you’re ready, you’ll know.
