Hey there, thanks so much for getting in touch!
You’re thinking of getting back with a girlfriend whom you broke up with a year ago.
Breakups can be tough, especially when you still have feelings for the person. It’s completely normal to think about giving it another shot with someone you cared about. It sounds like you’re going through a lot of emotions right now, and that’s ok. It’s important to take some time to really think about why you want to get back together with your ex-girlfriend.
Before making any decisions, it might be helpful to reflect on what led to the breakup in the first place and whether those issues have been resolved. Communication is key in any relationship, so consider talking openly and honestly with your ex about your feelings and concerns. Here is a great website that gives all the facts around relationships, which you might find helpful
Remember, it’s okay to take things slow and give yourself time to heal from the past before diving back into a relationship. And most importantly, prioritise your own well-being and happiness above all else.
