Has someone ever broken up with you, and later you realize that it was a good thing?

My ex broke up with me 6 months ago and I've since come to realize that it's a good thing she did because our personalities didn't click as well as I thought and I also was blinded by this side of her I didn't like.

  • Hmm.. Well my ex dumped me and now in this relationship I noticed I have extreme anxiety and it caused a lot of fights with my ex but a good thing? I don't know he was a great guy I can't think of anything I didn't like about him. My current boyfriend is basically Satan so I think about my ex a lot now. I don't miss him I just realize what I lost.

  • Yup, it is like that a lot of the time. But it is not an excuse for future relationships to toss them by the way side. As long as the other partner is willing to improve then by all means you can too.

  • Yes. When my ex first broke up with me I was devastated, and I spend almost a year trying to get him back. But now, I'm super glad that we broke up.

  • Yes. My ex broke up with me after dating for 5 months and he wasn't ready to be exclusive and I wanted to be. At the time I was devastated and so sad. But if I stayed with him, I would never have met my boyfriend. It was all for the best.

  • Of course. God removes things that shouldn't be in your life anymore cause it ain't good for you like it was before.

  • Yes, I think after the breakup things aren't clouded anymore and I can think back on things. Most of the time when I think back I wonder why I accepted so many things I usually wouldn't. At the end of the day I realize that I'm settling.

  • YES my ex boyfriend is literal garbage now. He was so shitty to me before we broke up and blamed me for everything that was wrong. He was also awful in bed and a year younger than me.

  • Yes I guess so. Or maybe that if they resorted to breaking up, things were obviously not going as well as I made myself believe and so I start to think maybe it was a good thing

  • It depends on the people really. You can tell if it was bad or good just solely on if they still want anything to do with you after the relationship ends.
