Your ex boyfriend dating someone else
Subconsciously you think “that’s mine” despite being aware you’re not even together.At one point or another, you start thinking maybe he/she will dump the new flame and you’ll be together.And who cares whether someone else would consider the other person a winner.
We always feel this urge to check their profiles, but it only causes more pain.This new person in their life isn’t necessarily more attractive, smarter, or prettier than you are.Bear in mind that the relationship ended because things didn’t work out, it’s life and those things happen to everyone.It is not uncommon to develop symptoms of depression including social isolation, feelings of helpless and worthlessness, guilt, difficulty concentrating, and others. Scientists explain that we are always in competition with our own sex.
Since the ancient men and women natural instinct was to breed and fight for the alpha dog status, the devastation caused by ex’s new relationship is instinctive too.
Deep down you know this outlook is detrimental to your emotional health and overall being at the same time.
