Though they are no longer a celebrity couple, Kaitlyn Bristowe is still has opinions about ex Nick Viall after their celebrity break up. According to UsMagazine.com, though it was all fun and games, Bristowe didn’t hesitate to diss her ex in a word association game saying Viall’s name negatively in association with “the right reasons.” Though it’s been years since they’ve dated, it’s clear there’s still bad blood even after all this time.
In celebrity news, these exes are clearly not on good terms after their break-up. What are some ways to keep old hurts from your exes from affecting your current life?
It can be hard to move on from an ex when you’ve broken up on bad terms. It’s best not to let those old wounds reopen and keep you from living your life. It’s not always easy to be friends with your ex, like Kourtney Kardashian is with Scott Disick, but it is possible to prevent that old relationship from holding you back like Khloe Kardashian after her break up with Tristan Thompson. Cupid has some tips:
1. Be comfortable moving on: Sometimes when you’re afraid of being alone, you tend to hold on to toxic people. Holding on to exes who are not good for you can lead to being resentful and holding onto bitterness, like Bristowe with her ex Viall.
2. Let go of any possible future together: If you’re still holding onto to the idea of you and your ex being together, it stops you from building a life with someone else. It also stops you from growing as a person because you may be stuck in the past.
3. Don’t talk about your ex: Don’t talk about your ex-partner. Just don’t. Talking about them is a sign that you’re not over them. If you talk about them, you’re thinking about them. If you’re thinking about them, you’re not moving on. Stop talking about them and you will stop thinking about them and you’ll finally move on to better things.
