Okay so in reality I don't care because I'm sick of her and wish she'd be out of my mind forever, but I just have this one question.
She broke up with me 8 months ago.. I did absolutely nothing wrong, but another guy came into her life. On Tumblr, she's still posting things like "Sometimes you have to give up on people. Everyone that is in your journey is meant to be in your journey, but not everyone is meant to stay there" or "there's a big part of me that wishes I never met you. I preferred the emptiness in me when I didn't know it was there".
Furthermore "yes it bothers me, but one day it won't" and "one of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Whether it's guilt, anger, love, loss, or betrayal. Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go".
Okay now that you know what she posted, why is she still posting these things. We haven't talked or seen eachother for multiple months. She also has a boyfriend whom she started having feelings for like a month or two after we broke up.
Also, I have stupidly been keeping up on her Tumblr here and there and there is not one single thing that has to do with her boyfriend. It's all about me or things she likes.
Why is she still posting this crap?

Oh crap I do this same thing. I'm delusional to think that one of these days he'll read some sad quote on Facebook that's obviously about him and suddenly want to be in a relationship with me again.
Truth is, whoever broke up with who, there is still something lingering between the two of you. If you didn't care at all and wanted her out of your mind you wouldn't check her page ever. If she didn't care about you, she wouldn't post emotionally charged quotes about how much she obviously regrets breaking up with you. I don't think there's any vindictive logic to what she's doing... in my mind it's not about power over you or anything like that.
To me it's just sad. It's like she wants to tell you how much she screwed up. It's like she wants to show you her remorse and put out into the universe (or in this case Tumblr) the idea of you guys getting back together to see if there's still hope. Like me, she's hoping against all hope that somehow you'll understand what she's hinting at... an apology, a reconciliation... something for sure because she wouldn't have those quotes on her mind if you weren't on her mind - if she wasn't torturing herself with regret.3

As she said we don't like change, we fight to hold on... you didn't have an acrimonious break-up, so she still has warm feelings for you, even if you don't have corresponding ones for her.
Take it as a compliment that she has difficulty letting you go, emotionally.
It may well mean she hopes you read them, you know... hopes you will respond.1
