RELATIONSHIPS AND EXES: THE NEED FOR BOUNDARIES

Exes might be the sand in one’s beautiful garri most of the time; therefore, it is important to set clear boundaries between you and your ex(es) in order to safeguard your relationship. Here are tips on how to set boundaries between you and your ex:

  1. Give yourself time to heal: Whether you were the cause of the breakup or not, you need to give yourself some time to heal from the emotional wounds you must have encountered in the relationship. Giving yourself time means you have to stop all forms of communication between you and your ex in order to be able to sort out your feelings appropriately.

  2. Have an open conversation between you and your ex (if necessary). If you are thinking of establishing a new relationship with your ex or if you decide to have them as a friend, you need to have an open and honest relationship with them where you get to communicate your feelings and the boundaries you are now setting.

  3. Block them (if necessary). Some exes deserve to be blocked, I agree. If you have had a toxic relationship with your ex, you need to let them go and their toxicity. You need to do this for yourself and for your emotional wellbeing.
