5 Reasons to Rethink Getting Back With Your Ex
Before we get into all of this, let me put up a disclaimer. Sometimes relationships do not work, not because two people are not meant for one another, but because the timing is wrong. And as a wise man once said, “The right thing at the wrong time is the wrong thing.” And so yes, in some cases, getting back with an ex can be a good thing. Usually that’s the exception and not to rule, though.
If you happen to be someone who is currently contemplating getting back with your ex - or more importantly, you have a habit of going back to your exes, I encourage you to read this article as a bit of “gut check”. It’s always interesting to me that so many folks go by the “follow your heart” adage when the heart tends to tell us to do all kinds of things that aren’t best for us. Eat that last donut. Buy that outfit we can’t afford. And yes, get back with the person who showed us a million reasons why we probably should not have gotten with them in the first place - perhaps that’s why Jeremiah 17:9 speaks of the heart being deceitful and Proverbs 4:23 tells us to guard our heart.
If you’re on the verge of responding to a late night text or reaching out to an ex on Instagram, check this list, at least twice, and be honest with yourself about if that’s a good idea. Or not.
