Psychologists Advise AGAINST Staying Friends With Exes

Written by

Relationships aren’t always built to last forever. There are a few relationships out there that exhibit strength, stability, and consistency. But there are also some relationships that are just destined to fade into the sunset. And when you decide that a relationship just isn’t a right fit for you, you make a decision to end things.

You decide to walk away from your partner and the relationship. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re going to want to completely lose someone who once served as a very important part of your life. That’s why you want to explore the idea of actually just staying friends with your ex even after the breakup.

Well, it might seem like a good idea on paper but that might not be the best option for you to take in real life. This is the advice given by various experts and psychologists who specialize in relationship and breakup dynamics.

1. This is what happens when you remain friends with an ex.

Nina Atwood, a famed author, and expert believes that being friends with an ex might actually cause a lot of emotional turmoil in your life. Whenever people remain friends with exes, it’s likely that it’s because they don’t want there to be a bitter breakage between them and their former lovers.

Typically, these people are also afraid of having to face a life without the people who once meant so much to them; the people who they really shared deep and intimate bonds with.

But one might assume that even though you have just lost the safety and security of being in a relationship with a person, the sense of comfort and attachment are still going to be there.

That’s why it’s only natural that someone would not want to lose another person entirely. And that’s really where the problem rests. It makes it almost impossible to just get rid of and overcome the feeling of loss and regret that you might have with an ex.

You might have a few mixed feelings regarding past memories and you will have difficulty overcoming them and making sense of everything if you’re still going to allow yourself to stay attached.
