After you have broken up with your girlfriend, you might be tempted to try and talk to her again for a wide variety of reasons. One of the reasons would be that you might want to try and get back together. Another reason would be that you simply miss her and you feel lonely so you want to talk to her and alleviate some of that loneliness.
However, there are quite a few reasons why you should try and avoid your ex as much as possible. The thing about avoiding an ex-girlfriend is that it can be quite tricky if you are not careful about it since the two of you might go to the same restaurants and bars or you might share a social circle that one of you will have to step away from.
These things are not going to be easy to deal with but they are worth it because being around your ex is not going to be a very good idea for you all things considered. The reason for this is that when you have an ex, you are probably no longer with them for a good reason. This reason needs to be addressed, and until it is you shouldn’t be around them.
If the two of you meet the temptation to resume the relationship might be quite strong, and this is the sort of thing that might make it difficult for you to get closure. Relationships that have ended are actually not that easy to continue, and you would only be dredging up painful memories by looking into meeting your ex girlfriend even occasionally. Avoiding her will be tough but in the long run it will be much better for your mental health.
