my boyfriend of 8 months recently ended things due to his mental health & inability to ‘be the boyfriend I deserved’ at the moment due to his immense stress levels. He told me he wants to try again when things have calmed for him & we both decided to call this stretch of time in which we are not together something like a break while we both figure our lives out. Were going to check in on how we both feel after school has started for a bit and then see if things are better for a relationship. My question is, have you ever gotten back with an ex after a ‘break’ or a breakup? Was it difficult for the person who was broken up with to overcome the pain that cane with getting broken up with? And lastly, was the relationship healthy and happy after getting back together?
