It's normal for you to miss little things about your ex. After all, you two were once happy together. Of course, if breaking up was the right move, then you aren't going to be all that sad at the end of the day. Here are a few things you won't miss about your ex after he's gone:
1. You Won't Miss All of the Fights You Had
Think of all the nasty fights you two have had over the course of your relationship. Aren't you glad that you don't have to deal with his ridiculous arguments anymore? You should stop thinking about all of the good old days when you two were getting along peachy, and start remembering all of the horrible things you fought over. It'll make you miss him less. Even better, it'll make you realize you're better off without him.
2. You Won't Miss the Anxiety over when and How It Will End
If he was the one who ended it, you probably spent a little bit of time paranoid over whether or not he would actually break up with you. At least the wait is over now. And if you were the one who broke up with him, at least you don't have to keep worrying about how to phrase it to him. It's all over with.
3. You Won't Miss Not Being Allowed to Flirt around
When you're in a relationship, you have to watch what you do and say. You don't want to accidentally flirt with someone, because it could upset your man. However, now that you're single, you don't have to censor yourself. You can talk to any man you want without feeling bad about it. Sure, you don't have a boyfriend anymore, but you do have thousands of potential boyfriends now.
4. You Won't Miss His Weird Sex Noises
If you were sexually active, there's probably something about his bedroom habits that grossed you out. After all, some pretty strange stuff can happen during intercourse. Maybe he had a weird orgasm face. Maybe he made strange noises when he kissed you. Either way, at least you don't have to deal with it anymore.
5. You Won't Miss His Annoying Family Members
There must be one family member, roommate, or pet of his that you absolutely hated. Now that you two are apart, you don't have to deal with them anymore. You can stop pretending to get along with them and kick them out of your life, along with your ex.
6. You Won't Miss Shaving for Him
Now that you're single, you don't have to shave your legs and bikini area every other day. You can walk around in pants and no one will have any idea that you haven't touched a razor in weeks. Isn't that a relief?
7. You Won't Miss Being Disappointed
Unhealthy relationships are filled with disappointment. Now that you two have broken up, at least he can't disappoint you anymore. That part of your life is over and done with. Now you can focus on yourself, enjoy your single life, and maybe find a new (and better) man along the way.
Breakups are always rough, but you can get through even the worst ones. You just have to remember that you're better off alone than in an unhealthy relationship. Have you recently been through a bad breakup?
