Jealousy in relationships can be annoying as f*ck especially when you always have to justify your actions and convince your partner of your commitment and faithfulness towards them. Dealing with a jealous ex on the other hand, is not only absurd, but also irritating because you don’t owe them shit, and are not obligated to please them. If the relationship is really over, you should be able to live your life without giving a hoot about what they think or how they feel. You’re no longer an item or on the same bandwidth.
Unfortunately, some people still feel bound to their ex. They feel pressured to make them happy despite not being together. Why should you care? Are you not entitled to be happy again? They’re only expected to get jealous when you’re together; when it’s over, that’s it. Nothing they do or say to you should matter.
These days when relationships end, ‘some ex’ refuses to let go when they realize that you’ve moved on with your life, or found love again. They believe you’re indebted to them, and for some weird reason, their opinions and feelings still weigh heavy on your heart.
You, yes you, need to shake that feeling off. You’re no longer together so what they think no longer matters. They do not need to know every single detail of your life, nor does their opinion matter. You’ve moved on and they should do the same.
