Allowing yourself to be trapped in your past prevents you from experiencing the joy the future may have to offer. You can’t get over your ex so you spend much time and energy hating them and trying to cause them strife. A new more suitable mate may be starring in the next chapter of your life but you won’t turn the page. Mr. or Ms. Right finds Mr. or Ms. Somebody Else because you’re holding on to a dead relationship from the past. Let go of the hurt and heal yourself. Let love fill your heart and it will attract that special love into your life.
