10 Things to Do Instead of Texting Your Ex "Hi"


Okay, so it's been a few weeks, maybe even months since the last time you spoke with your ex. Enough time has gone by where you are no longer distraught by the mere separation. You aren't fragile anymore. You just miss them and think it would be nice to catch up. Maybe you just want to give them a little, tiny reminder that you're still alive in the world and that you're doing great - totally composed, with your life together.

We get it. We've been there. We've felt your pain. But reaching out to an ex, even if it's simply for small talk, can rewind your progress and may be all it takes to peel at that wound you have been doing so well tending.
