I'm happy in my current relationship and in many ways it is better than the one I had with my ex. However I feel that my ex was the first true love of my life and sometimes I feel depressed that my old relationship is gone and feel sentimental over it. How do I handle this?

I understand this 100%. In my opinion you'll always have a Piece in your heart for your first love. 3 years ago I broke up with my first love and I'd still do anything for her and I know she'd do the same. There will always something for that person. But if it's distracting you from your new relationship then maybe you still adore them?4

I don't think u ever get over it first love.. You learn to live with it though. If you were to bump into ur ex tomorrow you wouldn't recognise that the guy you used to love is totally different now. I think we paint an alternative history of them from what they truly were. We ignore their flaws and settle for a shared loveliness we used to have with the ex. When in fact they were full of flaws hence why we broke up with them we just choose to forget and ignore they weren't that great.
it's so sad.. but you broke for a reason remember that.. and let it stay broken because if it didn't work once chances are it won't work again0
