Why Can’t I Let Go of My Ex-Boyfriend?

Do We Have Any Control Over Love With An Ex-Boyfriend?

When it comes to love, we seem to have no control over it.  Even when we no longer want to be with someone, their image still enters our mind. Why do we tend to think about our ex when we clearly want to move on?

Love is something that happens to us when we least expect. When we want to move on from someone that has hurt us, its understandable that we want to forget them.  Unfortunately, our minds are like a computer.  We tend to recall memories when we don’t want to. 

It will only take a certain song or something to trigger a memory.  You will only be able to forget about your ex with time.  As the saying goes, “time heals all wounds.”  This is the truth.  Sometimes you must let several years go by before you can fully forget about your ex-boyfriend.

Sometimes, you will meet a guy that acts just like your ex-boyfriend. This is probably one of the hardest things that a person can go through. 

Why Can’t I Let Go of My Ex-Boyfriend?

As a woman, you need to understand that love is not always going to be on your side.  We tend to choose men based on what our desires are.  We often choose similar guys that we have dated before. If you tend to like someone, you should always try to date someone without comparing them to an ex.

When it comes to finding love for the first time, its not easy.  Sometimes, your ex will come into your mind and it will feel like you can’t move on from him.  If you have had several boyfriends in your past, you are probably thinking abut all of them from time to time.  It’s never easy to forget about someone that you slept with and bonded with.  It’s important for you to be okay with letting go of the past.

Sometimes, we want to hold onto memories.  We often want to feel like we can have full control over what comes in and what goes out of our life. When you think about it, you can easily learn to deal with your own life in many ways. 

Life is something that we all need to learn about.  If you think about it, you can teach yourself how to love. You can give of yourself and learn what must happen in the future as well. 

Will Memories Of Your Ex Boyfriend Haunt You?

Its amazing how we can date someone and feel a deep connection with them.  However, we often can only recall a past memory.  Memories will often haunt us because we don’t know for sure why we are remembering certain things.

I think that when we have a past memory, we should always learn how to deal with it.  We can grow from our past mistakes in terms of love.

It’s important to always look at your life and feel like you can obtain a certain level of learning.  I think that in every relationship, we tend to learn something from it. It may not always be the best learning experience. However, we can always learn something from something that may have happened to us at some point in our lives.

I think that in life, you really must learn how to discipline yourself from thinking to much about the past.  Like attraction, we can’t control any kind of memories that we have with our exes.
