A lot of the times when you’re in a long term, serious relationship there comes a phase where things become too monotonous and unbearably painful that you need a break from your partner. However, for some people this break is a good time to rethink everything and start all over again with someone new after they have given themselves adequate time. Whereas, for others it can be one of those things where you might take a break and reconsider everything and then get back with your ex all over again. Regardless of the state or situation you find yourself in, it is very important that you take some time off and gather your thoughts before you decide on what you want to do.
For a lot of people the clarity doesn’t come to them for the longest time while others gain a sense of clarity after a couple of months only. If you are going through a period of pure confusion, the best thing you could do right now for yourself is to give yourself time to heal. In case you are being pushed to make a decision, here are a couple of signs you want your ex back that you could look into.
You’re Both Still Single
One way of knowing that neither of you have moved on from each other is by finding out whether your ex-partner is still single or not. This way you would know if there is a chance that you could reconnect and have a clean slate for your relationship.
You Both Have Grown
Another thing that you need to know about relationships is that when you’re both together for a longer period of time, there does come a time when you may find your partner’s habits annoying or irritating. So know that you need to grow as a person to be able to have a sustainable relationship.
