Totally Agree with this... A year ago mentioning my ex would have been nothing but unhappy memories but as time goes on and I heal.. I find myself telling stories and remembering the good times and it doesn't hurt anymore. I have no desire to be friends again but its nice to remember there was good. I'd rather remember that then all the bad times.
