Could it be its more important for you to just be with anyone instead of the actual person you were with? Maybe you have some love for him but he is just not the right guy for you. You must consider these points as you make up your mind. Do not rush into getting him back until you are absolutely sure it is right.
If you decide that it would be best to stay apart then there are things you can do to help you move on with your life. To help you realize that the relationship is really over you must reach some closure. You can finally heal from your break up at that point. Avoid letting your emotions get bottled up inside you or it may take you forever to move on. Below are some tips you can use to help get past this.
Seeing a therapist or counselor can help you move on by dealing with your emotions. You can discuss those things that may be difficult for you to talk to your family or friends about. Your counselor would also be impartial and not side with you or your ex and this can make it easier for you to talk.
If you do talk to your family or friends, make sure it is with someone that will listen to you. You don't want someone to just tell you to get over it and move on. You need someone that will be supportive of you and help you get through what you are dealing with.
Why not start a journal so you can write down your feelings? This would be another way to help release your emotions without having to talk about it with someone. Try writing some poetry as a way to express your feelings. Writing can be a great way to help you get over your ex.
If your ex boyfriend still has some of his stuff at your house it would be best to get it out of your sight. Every time you look at it you are reminded of him. If he does not take it away store it in a box and put them away where you won't see them every day. In the future after you get over your ex being gone you can bring out the items that you would like to keep around.
Last but not least get out and have fun. Spend time with your family and friends and enjoy yourself. If you just stay home thinking negative thoughts it will eat away at you and make you sick. You have to think about you and carry on with life. There are many more guys out there and one of them may really be the one for you.
