If you haven’t gotten over your ex emotionally and are determined to do so, you may be better off not reading that email.
If you are still in the process of healing from that break up and have every intention of moving forward with your life, you may be better off not reading that email.
You may be able to do so at a later date when you have healed and have moved on.
However, if you are still in the process of getting your life back together or moving forward with your life, you may want to avoid any distraction from your ex.
Being reintroduced to your ex if you haven’t completely healed may reopen old wounds and this isn’t a place you want to be in.
The problem with reading that email when you haven’t healed is that you may be hoping that this will restart the relationship.
However, that email may have nothing to do with that.
If it doesn’t you may be disappointed.
Even if it does, it may not be the right move for you.
You don’t really know what your ex’s motives are.
He may be lonely at this time and may want to use you to keep him company at this time until someone else comes along.
He may have just gotten into a fight with his current girlfriend and has now sent you an email so that he can make himself feel better about things.
People will often reach out to old partners when they feel vulnerable.
That fight may have made him feel vulnerable and now he has sent you this email so that he can use you to make him feel like he is a person of worth.
In other words, that email may be all about him.
His intentions may not be sincere.
If you were to read that email and give in to the hope that your ex will now be back with you, you may open yourself up to even more pain.
Once he has gotten his reassurance from you, he may leave again.
He may go right back to that girlfriend that upset him in the first place because he would have no more use of you.
Now you are right back where you started and even worse, you have been used.
Whatever progress you had been making up until that email would have been lost.
Do you really want to put yourself in this position?
I am sure you don’t.
He is your ex for a reason.
You have to allow yourself the opportunity to heal emotionally and understand your value as an individual.
You may have made yourself believe that no one can make you as happy as your ex did.
You may truly believe that he is the only one that can possibly get you.
However, this isn’t true.
If you could find someone who got you so well, you can find another.
This other may actually be the best fit for you.
However, you will never give yourself the opportunity to get there if you keep allowing yourself to believe that you can’t do any better.
