You shouldn’t keep the hope that you will get back together. There is a reason why you are no longer together.
Perhaps you had a lot of fights or couldn’t find ways to express yourself effectively. Perhaps they found someone else that they had more of a connection with.
What you once had with this person has come to an end.
If you want to be able to move forward with your life in a positive fashion, you will have to accept that.
The problem with keeping the hope is that this could be all on your end.
The person that you are wanting back in your life may not be feeling the same way that you are.
They may be going on with their lives and meeting new people.
Meanwhile, you are sitting around keeping the hope that they will get back together with you.
If this person hasn’t shown any real effort in getting back together with you, it is unlikely that they will.
It is all about taking action.
Even if you may have had some discussions with this person about the possibility of getting back together and they seemed to show interest, it really doesn’t matter if they haven’t taken appropriate action.
You have to judge this person based on what they are doing, not what they are saying.
It can be so easy to misjudge this situation and believe that you will get back together based on what you are desperately hoping for.
Unfortunately, this is your desire talking and not your reason.
You have to look at the reality of the situation and realize that it takes two people to make this work.
No matter how badly you want it, you can’t force someone to feel something for you that they don’t.
They have to have the same genuine feelings and willingness to make this work and get back together.
This means that they will take the necessary actions to make it happen and this is clearly not happening in your case.
Another reason why you shouldn’t keep the hope that you will get back together is because there is simply no way to determine when or if this will happen.
How long exactly are you going to keep the hope and wait?
A month? A year? A decade?
How long can you possibly put your life on hold in the hopes that this will happen?
There are simply no guarantees that it will happen and life is too unpredictable to wait around hoping.
You will pass up on several romantic opportunities that would have been good for you as you wait.
These are romantic opportunities that most people would have taken advantage of.
You missed out on them.
All for what? In the hopes that you get back together?
There are no guarantees that you will ever get back together and time is precious.
You should understand that what you had with this person is over and move forward with your life.
