Obsessing over your ex?

30 July 2015, 18:18 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I have the cure for you: the bad relationships that you have had over the past over that ex!

It is not them but you. Them meaning the people you have had after your ex.

You can never ever experience something good if what you are doing is constantly look over your shoulder for a confirmation from what you walked away from.

What mathematician has ever gotten it right because they kept looking for a solution from all the wrong answers they kept having? Or even scientist. If that logic has not gotten to you yet then what will? I think that this article should just be about people who are with someone who keeps comparing them to what they once had.

It is a headline for you to just move on to the next thing or what was there from the beginning but you ignored it because you thought that that person is what you needed in your life. Let them go because they do not want the good that you think you are bringing.

A person obsessing over their ex is constantly looking over their shoulder to what they used to have rather that what they have right now.

You are doing it right to the capacity that you are capable of but it is never good enough for them because they are looking for loopholes.

Sneeze? It does not sound good but it can sound better because their ex had a better sneeze. Cook for them? The effort is what is appreciated by the majority but for them it does not taste as good even if the ex could not ex to save their life.

You go on a date with them and they are the people that make the whole date about the ex. Yes, it is good to open up. It is good to not keep secrets but keep it at a minimum. I like biographies but not when I have dressed up for them and made an effort to make it early to a dinner.

If you are the type of the person that goes through every single person that comes across you and you need to compare them to something else to prove their worth then you are already losing. Because just like in business; you have to prove that you are bringing something new to the table to attract the customer. You are not giving this other person that chance.

You are not giving this other person that chance that they are satisfying a need that you never even discovered. You are closing off the opportunity that maybe, you will learn something new that you never even knew about yourself. That is what obsessing over an ex does.

It is not just a simple text they sent but also closing off your feelings, emotions, experiences and every other thing that you could have had and actually enjoyed with this new beau.
