So long story short, when I was 19 I had a boyfriend who I felt treated my not very well after dating a year I ended the relationship (I tried breaking up 2x prior to that time) during that time I lied to him saying I was in love, I knew I wasn't. I'm pretty sure our breakup broke his heart...
Fast forward to now, I'm 23, I'm I've been dating a guy for a year it's a solid relationship and I'm happy. However, my ex boyfriend still misses me, he tells me how he wished we could have worked it out and how he isn't as happy as he used to be... I still keep in touch every once in a while be honest out of guilt, and my boyfriend thinks I need to give my ex space and not be in any part of his life so he can fully move on... Is my boyfriend right?

Why are you keeping someone in your life that treated you poorly? Why are you feeling guilty for leaving a relationship that wasn't good? He doesn't really miss you - he misses having a punching bag that will just lie there and take it.
Your boyfriend is right. Forget about that loser and move on with your life.1
