We have all been told growing up that nothing lasts for everyone… especially these treasured things we call relationships. Everyone leaves one way or the other. Sometimes it takes you a long time to move and find somebody new. The cycle begins again: the start off as strangers, you become close; you drift apart and go back to being strangers. But that does not mean what you had with your partner was not true.

It just means that when you both grow as individuals, you grow but apart from one another. And so, there are always going to be little things here and there about your ex that will haunt you in the form of bitter-sweet memories – things they did for you, something sweet they often said that you will miss.

You cannot completely forget them either, no matter how hard you try. And time does not heal everything either. You will just learn to live with that weight and find your courage again to move on to better things in life because you deserve it.

However, missing does not necessarily mean you have not moved on from your ex. After all, you shared a life with someone and they did the same with you no matter for how long; you both got a chance to know each other inside out even if only in bits and pieces…and something like that cannot just be forgotten.

Missing them only makes you more human and less numb to what mattered in your relationship. Holding on would be when you keep missing your ex or the things they did and said and feeling stuck in the past, instead of carrying those memories with you and moving on to a better future.

That is the real trick, to miss them in all the cherished moments you shared with your ex but not turn bitter towards them, to move on and miss them in good terms, all the while wanting only the best for them.


(March 21st to April 19th)

Aries are all about bringing in the fun in a relationship, while at the same time they make you feel at ease with yourself. Their loyalty has its own special place in the relationship because they don’t quit easily on someone they believe in. Life is all about taking risks and making the best of the moment while you still can for an Aries.

When they are gone, you cannot help but feel how your life is a bit boring without them around, how it has lost that spark. Being around them makes you feel like life is really worth it, that the struggles are just a part of achieving something greater. Even the everyday routine seems like a piece of cake when you are dating an Aries.

When they leave, it is like they take away that touch of excitement and intrigue with them and you will miss how much you enjoyed even the littlest things of your life and reality itself. An Aries will teach you the worth of patience and when and how to invest it. After you both part ways, you will miss that quality dearly; not everyone can teach you the worth of patience in fact, they demand it.

For an Aries, winning means a lot but more than that, when it comes to someone they care about, the process itself is what matters more. When you are with someone new, you will miss enjoying the process of doing something meaningful more than actually winning it, and the fact that your new partner does not view it the same way will only make you miss your Aries ex more. – continue reading on next page
