Q: I’m 18 years old and I have an ex-girlfriend. We attend the same school and we are often in the same class. The thing that keeps me wondering is that she always talks about her boyfriend to all of my friends just to make me feel bad. I try to ignore her when she talks about how much she loves him, but it still gets to me. When I look at her, I am reminded of those days. So the problem is that I met another girl who treats me very well – I love her and am happy with her – but now I can’t stop thinking about my ex-girlfriend. The worst part is that when I see her with her new boyfriend, I get jealous. What can I do to forget about her and focus on my new relationship? 💜
A: Jealousy isn’t a good attribute. It shows possessiveness and obsession. I’m assuming your ex is your ex for a very good reason 💔. What you’re saying is that you have a new girlfriend who treats you well. My advice is: don’t ruin what you’ve got for something that didn’t work. It’s normal to still feel something for your ex; what worries me are your thoughts of going there again. The attributes of faithfulness and loyalty are something everyone wants in someone. Move on.
