This Video Will Give You Hope About Getting Back With Your Ex...Kind Of
Meeting your ex for the first time after a breakup isn't easy. No matter how sure you may be that you've gotten over them, there are still traces of the love you used to share and the sadness you felt when he left you that will bubble up to the surface. Most of the time, during that accidental meeting, you'll even find yourself wanting to get back with them again.
In this video shared by UNILAD, an ex-couple sees each other again and while it may seem that they give out "normal" reactions of exes seeing each other after a breakup, what they tell their common friend is sooo different.
The girl and the guy interpreted different things from their meeting when in reality, they actually share the same feeling of wanting to be with the other person again. And while this may not happen to all ex-couples in the world, what we can learn from this is the importance of clear communication. And we don't just mean understanding the other person, but really talking to them and listening to their side of the story.
Really listening and talking to them will give you a clear idea of what they meant by their actions and their words...unless they, of course, try to conceal how they feel. While it may always not be a happy ending like (after all, ex-couples getting back together is one in a million), we can all agree that communication is important in any relationship—not just the talking part, but the listening part too.

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
