Q: Hi Allana – huge fan! I love getting your newsletters but I didn’t really care for the “text your ex” one. I feel like most of my problems exist because my ex and I won’t stop texting each other. Every time I feel like I am moving on with my life and taking a step forward (away from him), he sends me a text and drags me back in. This can’t be healthy.
A: Love, the text your ex newsletter was geared towards those who want to get back together with their ex. Your situations sounds just the opposite. Let’s focus on your comment “drags me back in.” My sister, he can’t drag you back in, you keep allow this to happen. Ask yourself – why do you respond? You have the power to ignore and yet you choose not to, is it because you may be getting something out of this?
