There are many different opinions on the role of exes in our lives. Some people believe that we should cut all ties with them and never speak to them again, while others think that they can still be a valuable part of our lives. What is the right answer? That depends on your personal situation. In this blog post, we will explore both sides of the argument and help you decide what is best for you.

What Role Do Exes Play in Our Lives and Why Do We Keep Them Around Even After a Breakup?

Exes are a complicated part of our lives, and I think we tend to keep them around for a number of reasons. For one, exes can be helpful guides when it comes to navigating new relationships. Often, they provide valuable insight into things like the boundaries of what’s healthy and what’s not, and they help us to better understand ourselves as well as other people.

Secondly, exes can serve as emotional crutches. When a breakup hits us hard, exes provide an opportunity to vent our feelings without worrying that they’ll respond with hurtful words or negative actions. And thirdly, exes continue to play an important (if often subconscious) role in our everyday lives.

Whether this is through silently comparing new relationships unfavourably to previous ones, holding on to old keepsakes and mementoes as reminders of happier times, or simply having trouble fully moving on after years of being intertwined with another person. In these ways and more, exes remain an important part of who we are – for better or for worse. And even though breakups can feel like the end of the world at first, they ultimately pave the way for new beginnings.

Overall, exes have the ability to fill many different roles in our lives – and no matter how painful breakups may be at the time, that isn’t likely to change anytime soon.

Should you Date Someone Your Friend Has Dated?

Whether or not it’s a good idea to date someone your friend has dated is a question that many people struggle with. Some would argue that exes should be off-limits, as getting involved with an ex can lead to messy situations and hurt feelings. Others might claim that exes are fair game, seeing them as simply another experience you can learn from.

Ultimately, the decision about whether to date an ex comes down to individual circumstances and factors such as compatibility and trust. Dating is about finding the person who makes you happy and fulfils your needs, so don’t let other people’s opinions limit what you’re looking for in a partner! Instead, make sure your decisions are grounded in what works best for you personally.

At the end of the day, the best course of action is often to simply communicate openly and honestly with your friend about your intentions. By being clear about your intentions from the get-go, you will avoid hurt feelings and unnecessary complications in your relationship. So if you’re considering dating an ex, just keep this in mind – communication is key! Either way, it’s important, to be honest with yourself and your friend about how you feel. Only then can you make the decision that’s best for everyone involved.

Should your Friend Date Someone You’ve Dated?

Of course, it’s not always easy to remain on good terms with your exes. However, it’s important to remember that they are still people with feelings, just like you. So, before you answer the question of whether or not you think it’s a good idea for your friend to date your ex, you should ask yourself how you would feel in their position. Would you be happy for them? Or would you feel betrayed?

On the one hand, it can be seen as a betrayal of trust; after all, you and your ex were once close, and the union of your friend and your ex feels like a violation of that trust. On the other hand, if you’re both adults and the relationship ended on good terms, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to date whoever you want. Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to date a friend’s ex is up to you. If you’re comfortable with the idea, go for it. But if it doesn’t feel right, it’s probably best to steer clear. Sometimes, exes are exes for a reason.

Dating Someone Who’s Friends with Their Ex

Being friends with your ex is one thing, but dating someone who is still friends with their ex can be a tricky situation. On the one hand, it’s great that your partner is on good terms with their ex and can remain civil. However, it’s also possible that their friendship is a little too close for comfort. If you’re thinking about dating someone who is still friends with their ex, here are a few things to keep in mind. 

First, make sure that you’re okay with the idea of your partner being friends with their ex. If you’re not comfortable with it, then it’s probably not the right relationship for you or it’s time to try the next step.

Second, communication is key. If you’re feeling jealous or uncomfortable about your partner’s relationship with their ex, talk to them about it. They may not even realize that you’re feeling this way, and once they do, they can work to put your mind at ease. 

Third, try to get to know their ex a little better. If they’re unwilling to introduce you or if they talk about their ex all the time, it might be a sign that they’re not over them yet. Lastly, trust your gut. If something feels off about their relationship with their ex, then it’s probably best to move on.

 Should you Date a Friend of Your Ex?

It’s a dilemma that we’ve all faced at one point or another: you meet someone new, and they happen to be friends with your ex. Should you date them? It’s a tough question, and there’s no easy answer. On the one hand, it could be a great opportunity to get to know someone new. On the other hand, it could be a recipe for disaster. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you find yourself in this situation.

First, ask yourself why you’re interested in dating this person. If it’s simply because they’re friends with your ex, then you might want to reconsider. It’s important to date someone for the right reasons, not just because they happen to know someone you know. 

Secondly, think about how comfortable you would feel if your ex were to show up while you were on a date with their friend. If the thought of this makes you uncomfortable, it’s probably not worth pursuing. 

Thirdly, ask yourself how strong your feelings are for this person. If you’re just trying to rebound, it’s probably not worth getting your ex’s friends involved. But if you’re truly interested in them, it might be worth taking the leap. Who knows – you might end up surprising yourself (and your ex) in the best way possible. 

Finally, consider how your ex would feel if they found out you were dating their friend. If there’s a good chance they would be hurt or angry, it’s probably not worth it.

Can you be friends with your ex while dating someone else?

Whether or not you can be friends with your ex while dating someone new is a hotly debated topic. Some people say that it is impossible to maintain a friendship with an ex after you start seeing someone new, as there will always be lingering feelings that might damage your current relationship.

However, others believe that exes can actually make great friends, as they often have shared experiences and interests that others might not. There are certainly ways that exes can remain friends without compromising their budding relationships or causing conflict. For example, If you want to remain friends with your ex-partner, it is important to set boundaries early on so that both parties behave respectfully towards each other and their new partners. 

It is also essential to communicate with your current partner about your friendship with your ex, as they might feel uncomfortable about the situation if they are not kept in the loop. it is up to you and your ex to decide whether or not you want to remain friends. If you decide to give it a try, be sure to take things slow and be respectful of everyone involved.

In the end, the answer to this question depends on the individuals involved and their levels of maturity and trust. If both parties are communicative and respectful of each other’s relationships, then it may indeed be possible to maintain a friendship with your ex while dating someone else. But ultimately, this comes down to each couple’s unique situation and dynamics. So whether you choose to keep your ex in your life or cut all ties completely is simply a matter of personal choice. After all, only you know what is best for you.

Is it ever possible to maintain a friendship with an ex after a breakup, or is that too complicated as well?

It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves at one point or another: is it possible to be friends with an ex after a breakup? The answer, unfortunately, is not a simple yes or no. In some cases, it may be possible to maintain a friendship with an ex, particularly if the break-up was amicable. However, in other cases, it may be best to move on and focus on building new relationships. Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to remain friends with an ex is a personal one that depends on the individuals involved. 

If you really want to maintain a friendship with your ex after a breakup, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind. First, don’t try to force the friendship – just let it happen naturally. 

Second, don’t bring up old baggage or try to relive the past. And third, be accepting of the fact that your relationship will never be exactly the same as it was before. If you can do all that, then you’re well on your way to being friends with your ex! Exes are complicated, and friendships are even more so – so tread carefully before making any decisions.

Are there any benefits to staying friends with an ex after breaking up, or is it better to cut all ties completely?

There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to whether or not you should stay friends with an ex after breaking up. Some people find that they’re able to remain friends and that it’s actually beneficial to their relationship, while others find that it’s too painful and prefer to cut all ties. If you’re trying to decide what’s right for you, there are a few things to consider.

First, think about why you want to stay friends with your ex. Is it because you genuinely enjoy their company and want to maintain a friendship, or is it because you’re hoping to get back together? If it’s the latter, you might want to rethink your decision, as staying friends in this situation can often be more painful than helpful.

On the other hand, if you’re simply looking to remain friends, there are a few benefits that can come from it. For example, staying friends with an ex can help you better understand each other and learn from your past mistakes. Additionally, it can give you both closure on the relationship and allow you to move on more easily. Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to stay friends with an ex is a personal one that only you can make. Consider your reasons carefully before making a decision

How do we know when it’s time to finally move on and cut ties with an ex for good?

There can be many signs that it’s time to finally move on and cut ties with an ex for good. If you find yourself constantly thinking about them, or if you can’t seem to get over them despite moving on to other relationships, it may be time to let go.

If your ex is causing you more pain than happiness, it may be time to cut ties. Of course, everybody heals from breakups at their own pace, so ultimately only you can decide when the time is right. But if you’re struggling to let go, it may be worth considering whether or not moving on is the best option for you.

If you’re having a hard time deciding whether or not to move on from an ex, here are a few things to consider:

1. How much pain are you still feeling?

If you’re still hurting from the breakup, it may not be the best time to move on. You need time to heal before you can start fresh with someone new.

2. How often do you think about your ex?

If you find yourself constantly thinking about your ex, it may be a sign that you’re not ready to move on yet. You need to focus on healing and moving on before you can start thinking about starting a new relationship.

3. Are they still in your life?

If your ex is still in your life in some way – whether it’s through social media, mutual friends, or otherwise – it may be harder to let go. It’s important to remember that the longer you stay connected, the harder it will be to move on.

There are a few key indicators that it may be time to move on from an ex for good. If you find yourself constantly thinking about them, or if you can’t seem to get over them despite moving on to other relationships, it may be time to let go.

Additionally, if your ex is causing you more pain than happiness, it may be time to cut ties. Of course, everybody heals from breakups at their own pace, so ultimately only you can decide when the time is right. But if you’re struggling to let go, it may be worth considering whether or not moving on is the best option for you.

Conclusion

Well, that’s a lot to think about. Obviously, there are no easy answers when it comes to exes. But hopefully, we’ve given you some things to consider as you navigate your way through this complicated – but common – dating terrain. one thing I want you to always remember is that whatever rules you are placing around your relationship not only apply to your partner but also apply to you.

Find Your Life Purpose: How to Discover What You Were Born To Do

Come & Join the Hangout!
Enter your details below to join the email hangout series where we discuss different topics every week related to self growth

I have read the Privacy Policy

Do you know what your life purpose is? If not, don’t worry – you’re not alone. Many people spend their entire lives searching for their life purpose, without ever finding it. That’s because there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Everyone has a different life purpose, and there are many different ways to find it. In this blog post, we will discuss 9 unique methods for finding your life purpose. Use these methods to discover what you were born to do, and start living a more fulfilling life!

1. Your higher power

Many people searching for their life’s purpose end up feeling lost and frustrated. If you’re at a loss for what you should be doing with your life, you may be looking in the wrong places. The good news is, that there is a unique method that can help you discover your life’s purpose, and it starts with finding your higher power. When you connect with a power that is greater than yourself, you open yourself up to receiving guidance and wisdom. From there, you can start to receive messages about what your life’s purpose is. One way to connect with your higher power is to meditate or pray for guidance. You can also keep a journal in which you explore your deepest desires and ask for guidance about how to achieve them. These messages can come in many forms, such as through dreams, visions, or even just a sense of knowing. Trust that the guidance you receive is coming from a place of love, and let it lead you to your life’s purpose.

2. The Values Exercise

Everyone has their own unique talents and abilities, and sometimes it can be hard to figure out what you’re meant to do with your life. If you’re feeling lost or uncertain about your path, there’s a simple exercise that can help you to get clarity about what’s important to you and what you want to achieve. It’s called the values exercise, and it works like this: first, make a list of everything that’s important to you in life. This could include things like family, friends, health, wealth, career success, etc. Once you’ve got your list, rank each item in order of importance, with the most important thing at the top. Now, take a look at your list and see if there are any patterns or common themes.

For example, if you find that most of the things on your list are related to helping others, then it’s likely that your life purpose has something to do with service. If you see a lot of items related to creativity, then your life purpose might have something to do with the arts. By taking the time to analyze your values, you can get a better understanding of what’s important to you and what you want to achieve in life.

3. Your Passions and interests

If you’re not sure what your life’s purpose is, a great place to start is by looking at your passions and interests. What are the things that you are most passionate about? What makes you excited to wake up every day? These are clues to what your life’s purpose might be. For example, if you’re passionate about animals, your life’s purpose might involve working with them in some way. Maybe you could become a veterinarian, or work for an animal rescue organization. If you’re interested in fashion, your life’s purpose might involve becoming a fashion designer or working in the fashion industry. Follow your heart and let your passions guide you to your life’s purpose.

4. Your talents and skills

We all have talents and skills that come naturally to us. However, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out what we were born to do. If you’re struggling to find your calling, there is a unique method that can help you discover your true talents and skills. The next time you’re feeling lost, try this exercise: Make a list of everything that you enjoy doing. Then, take a look at your list and consider what activities make you feel most fulfilled. What are you passionate about? What makes you feel alive? Answering these questions can help you gain clarity about your true talents and skills. Once you know what you’re good at, you can start using your talents to make a difference in the world. There’s no better feeling than using your unique gifts to make a positive impact on others.

5. Your Habits & how they fit into your life purpose

You know that feeling when you just can’t seem to find your place in the world? Like you’re meant to be doing something else, but you have no idea what that is? Well, a method that can help you figure it out is called the Habit Method.

The basic premise of the Habit Method is simple: by examining your habits, you can identify your strengths and weaknesses, and this self-knowledge can help you find the work that you were meant to do. To use the Habit Method, simply keep a journal of your daily habits for a period of time.

As you record your habits, pay attention to any patterns that emerge. Do you find that you’re always drawn to creative pursuits? Or that you have a knack for problem-solving? These patterns can give you clues about the type of work that would suit you best.

6. Taking a life-changing trip to find your life purpose

Many people go through their lives without ever discovering their true purpose. If you feel like you’re searching for something more, it might be time to take a life-changing trip. By getting out of your comfort zone and exploring new places, you can open yourself up to new possibilities and gain a better understanding of the world around you. Travel can also help you to develop new skills and perspectives that you can use in your everyday life. So if you’re feeling lost, don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith and book that ticket. Who knows? Your dream destination just might hold the key to unlocking your true potential.

7. Taking an assessment test

If you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, or if you’re just not sure what direction to take, you might benefit from taking a personality, careers and or life assessment test. While there are many different types of these tests available, they all have one goal: to help you figure out what you’re passionate about. By answering a series of questions about your interests, values, and goals, an assessment test can give you some much-needed clarity. It can also help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, and it can provide you with a better understanding of what makes you happy. If you’re feeling lost or unsure of your path in life, taking an assessment test could be the first step in finding your way.

8. Service to others

Another great way to find your life’s purpose is by serving others. When you give of yourself selflessly, you open yourself up to new experiences and lessons. As you help others, you will also start to get a better understanding of who you are and what you’re meant to do in this life. service can come in many forms, such as volunteering, helping a friend in need, or even just smiling at someone you pass on the street. Every act of kindness makes a difference, so don’t underestimate the power of service.

9. Talk to friends, family, and mentors for advice on what they think you would be great at

Trying to figure out what you should do with your life can feel like a daunting task. However, one unique method that can help you figure out your calling is to talk to those who know you best. Friends and family can offer valuable insights into your strengths and weaknesses, and they may have suggestions for careers that would suit you. Similarly, mentors can provide guidance and support as you explore different options. By talking to those who care about you, you can get a better sense of what you’re good at and what you might enjoy doing. In addition, they can offer encouragement and advice when you’re feeling lost or uncertain. Ultimately, discovering your purpose in life is a journey that requires exploration and self-reflection. However, talking to others can be a great way to get started.

Bonus: Your Life experiences

Another great way to find your life’s purpose is by looking at your life experiences. What has life taught you so far? What challenges have you faced, and how did you overcome them? These life experiences can be pivotal in helping you discover your life’s purpose. For example, if you’ve experienced a lot of heartache in your life, your purpose might be to help others heal from their own pain. If you’ve faced many obstacles, your purpose might be to help others overcome their own challenges. Let your life experiences guide you to the lessons you are meant to learn and use those lessons to help others.

Conclusion on finding your life purpose

We hope you’ve found this helpful and that it has inspired you to take some action. Whether that means taking an assessment test to figure out what your talents and skills are, we want to encourage you to keep moving forward.

couple checking updates on social media - Should You Put Your Relationship on Social Media? 11 Pros and Cons to Consider

So what do you think? Is social media a good idea for your relationship?

When it comes to social media, there are a lot of personal decisions that we have to make. It allows us to stay connected with friends and family all over the world, and it gives us a platform to share our thoughts and experiences. But what about our relationships? Many couples are now choosing to put their relationship on social media for all to see. But is this a good idea? There are pros and cons to consider before making this decision. In this blog post, we will take a look at 11 of the most important ones.

11 Pros and Cons to consider

1. Pro: It can help keep your relationship strong.

When you share your relationship with the world, it can help strengthen your bond with each other. Seeing all of the positive comments and likes from friends and family can make you feel appreciated and loved. It can also be a great way to show your partner how much you love them. Of course, it’s important to maintain a healthy balance between sharing your relationship online and maintaining some privacy. But if you use social media in a positive way, it can be a great tool for keeping your relationship strong.

2. Con: It can cause jealousy and envy.

Sharing your relationship on social media can sometimes backfire. When people see how happy you are together, it can often lead to feelings of jealousy and envy. This is especially true if people know that your relationship is rocky or just starting out. If people know that you’re having trouble, they might be more likely to feel jealous when they see how happy you are together. So before you post that picture of you and your bae, make sure you’re prepared for the potential consequences.

3. Pro: It can make you feel more connected to your partner.

Social media can help you feel more connected to your partner, even when you’re not physically together. Seeing their posts and updates can give you a sense of what they’re doing and how they’re feeling. This can be a great way to stay in touch when you’re apart. Of course, it’s important to balance this digital connection with real-life interaction. You don’t want to spend more time staring at your phone than you do talking to your partner! But used in moderation, social media can be a great way to stay connected to the one you love.

4. Con: It can be overwhelming.

Keeping up with social media can be a lot of work. If you’re already busy with work, school, or other obligations, it can be tough to find the time to post about your relationship too. This can often lead to feelings of resentment and pressure.

However, If that’s your thing and you’ve decided that you are going to keep up with the Jones’ but you’re struggling to find the time to post about your relationship, here are a few tips that might help: 

– Set aside some time each week to plan your posts. This way, you’ll have a game plan and won’t have to waste time coming up with ideas on the fly.

– Take advantage of scheduling tools. Many social media platforms allow you to schedule your posts in advance, so take advantage of this feature! 

– Utilize shortcuts and strategies. There are tons of ways to make social media easier, from using shortcuts

5. Pro: It can help friends and family feel involved in your relationship.

If you share your relationship on social media, it can help friends and family feel like they’re a part of your life together. They can follow along and see all the special moments that you share. This can be a great way to stay connected with loved ones who live far away.

Those in a long-distance relationship know how hard it can be to stay connected with your partner. You might not be able to see each other as often as you’d like, but there’s one way to help bridge the gap: social media. By sharing your relationship on social media, you can give your friends and family a window into your life together. They can follow along and see all the special moments that you share. Plus, it’s a great way to stay connected with loved ones who live far away. So go ahead and post those photos, share those inside jokes, and let your loved ones be a part of your relationship.

6. Con: It can take away from quality time together.

As anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, spending quality time with your partner is essential. But in today’s age of constant technology, it can be hard to find time to truly connect. Whether you’re always on your phone or you’re constantly checking social media, it’s easy to get lost in a virtual world and forget about the real one. That’s why it’s so important to unplug and spend some time together without any distractions. You might be surprised how much more connected you feel when you’re not constantly checking your phone. So next time you’re with your partner put away your phone and just enjoy each other’s company. You’ll be glad you did.

7. Pro: It can be a great way to connect with other couples.

If you and your partner are active on social media, it can be a great way to connect with other couples. You can follow their posts, share advice, and even meet up in person if you live close by. This can be a fun way to socialize and make new friends. Plus, it’s a great way to get tips on how to keep your relationship strong. Whether you’re looking for date night ideas or ways to spice up your sex life, you’re sure to find some helpful advice from other couples who are in the same boat as you. So go ahead and start following some of your favourite couples on social media – you might be surprised at how much you have in common with them!

8. Con: It can put a lot of pressure on your relationship.

When you share your relationship on social media, it can often feel like you’re under a microscope. People are always watching and waiting for something to go wrong. This can be a lot of pressure to deal with, especially if you’re already dealing with problems in your relationship. But here’s the thing: people are only human, and relationships are complex. So it’s normal for there to be ups and downs. And it’s also normal for people to make mistakes. So if you’re feeling pressure, just remember that everyone makes mistakes and that relationships take work. And if you’re having a tough time, reach out to a friend or family member for support. Because at the end of the day, relationships are about love, not social media.

9. Pro: It can be a great way to document your relationship.

social media can be a great way to document your relationship. You can look back on all of the special moments that you’ve shared together and see how far you’ve come. This can be a great way to reminisce and feel grateful for what you have. But it can also be a great way to show off your relationship to the world. If you’re in a long-term relationship, social media can be a great way to let everyone know that you’re still going strong. And if you’re in a new relationship, social media can be a great way to share exciting news with your friends and family. In either case, social media can be a great way to document your relationship and show the world how much you love each other.

10. Con: the relationship is either too new or unstable to share with the world.

If you’re in a new relationship, it might be best to keep things off social media for a while. You don’t want to share something that could potentially end up being short-lived. The same goes for relationships that are unstable or going through a rough patch. It’s best to wait until things are back on track before posting about it online. Of course, this isn’t always possible or desirable. If you can’t resist the urge to share, there are a few things you can do to minimize the risk of your relationship status becoming news fodder. Make sure you avoid using terms like “my boyfriend” or “my girlfriend.” These labels create a sense of permanence that may not exist in your relationship. Don’t post any photos of you two together until you’re sure that the relationship is stable. Once you’ve taken these precautions, then feel free to share your relationship status with the world.

11. Con: It can give people the wrong idea about your relationship.

Social media can often give people a skewed view of reality. If you only post the good stuff, it can make it seem like you have a perfect relationship. This can be misleading and even make people feel bad about their own relationships. We all have our ups and downs, our fights and our makeup sex. And that’s okay. It’s important, to be honest, and realistic when sharing your relationship online.

Conclusion

Social media can be a great way to connect with friends and family, but it’s important to keep things in perspective. Just because someone appears to have a perfect life on social media doesn’t mean that’s actually the case. Everyone has their own struggles and challenges, regardless of what they post on social media. So don’t compare your real life to someone else’s highlight reel. Also, remember that people often only share the positive aspects of their lives on social media, while keeping the negative aspects private. So don’t assume that everyone else is having a better time than you are just because you see them posting about all their great experiences. Instead, focus on enjoying your own life and experiences, and use social media as a way to supplement those experiences.

So what should you do? Weigh the pros and cons and make a decision that’s right for you.
