You can miss him, but nothing more

If you truly think that your missing someone is some cosmic sign that you’re meant to be together, think about this for a moment: you (probably) deeply missed every single ex you’ve ever had for a while after those breakups. And now how do you feel about them? Exactly. “Missing someone is normal, however that does not mean you turn back to the relationship to avoid that feeling,” Matthews says. When you find yourself missing the person, try the slightly uncomfortable exercise of recalling the things that person did and said that caused you to leave the relationship. Then you may not miss them so much.
