Have you ever noticed how hard it is to remember negative things about a past relationship? Especially if there were only a few things wrong, no matter how significant. It’s almost like the brain has this intense desire to be involved with someone so it tricks you into thinking that a relationship is a good idea.
My brain is trying to trick me. And I don’t like it. How am I going to fight this urge? I’m thinking avoidance might be the best strategy… If I don’t respond to the advances of my ex, maybe I can avoid making a decision I know I’m incapable of making.
