How The Devil’s Workshop is Stopping You from Getting Your Ex Back?

Ever heard the phrase “An Idle Mind is The Devil’s Workshop?” At this point of time, an idle mind is your biggest enemy.

In all practicality, it will be impossible for you to sit somewhere and not think about your ex. At the moment, it might feel like the heartache is just too much to bear and thinking about what your ex is doing will just make it worse.

What if they are with someone else?

What if they are over the breakup?

What if they have already forgotten about me?

These “what if” questions are as useless as a used condom. They will only make you feel worse. And if you just sit around your house, doing nothing, then you are bound to fall into this endless loop of “what if” questions.

So, in short, you need to go out and do something. If you don’t feel like going out, then do something at home. There are tons of things you can do if you just try to find something to do. Play video games, go jogging, hang out with friends, play an instrument, play golf, go to the gym.

But beware; there are some activities that will make you more prone to thinking about your ex. These activities include drinking too much, eating ice cream and watching a sad romantic movie, eating unhealthy food etc.

It is quite possible that you might have that gut crunching feeling at the moment and don’t feel like doing anything else other than just sitting and thinking about your ex. I know what it feels like. But you have to understand that gut crunching feeling is only going to get worse if you don’t do something to keep your mind off your ex. I know how hard it can be to get yourself out of the sofa and do something that you have no interest in doing at the moment. But trust me, once you get to doing something creative, fun or exciting, you will forget about your ex very quickly and you will be glad you took the effort to do it.

If you have any ideas that might help others take their mind off their ex, I’d love to hear from you. Leave your ideas in the comment section below.

He stays over all the time and now she says he will be moving in with her 2 months from now….. I have been dating one woman since she started hers….. What do I do now? I somehow want her and my family back as I see my relationship is not really going anywhere with the new woman..

    Relax. Like playing a guitar, freeze the unnecessary feelings or thoughts. Just let yourself be drowned by the rhythm. Believe me, He has equip you more than enough tools. You are the Masterpiece. Be proud. No hands on needed. You don’t need others to clarify things for you, you just need Almighty God approval. In fact, He gifted us the inner peace for us placed in our soul. Use it. It works all the time… 🙂

    I left the apartment that morning in a bad mood because of something stupid he said, paid my bills and then went to watch my grandson like i always do Wednesday-Friday for only a few hours. I called him to see what he would say. He did not say he was sorry, instead he asked if we were done as I said we were when I left..he was in the shower.so any how he did not say he was sorry.instead he asked if we were done? so without thinking I said yes. He was gone with all his stuff when I got home. After I had come to better judgement I knew he didn’t mean what he said at all he was just venting..I never did that before, and when I came to my senses, I realized I made a bid mistake. He won’t talk to me or answer my text. or anything. When I went to see him he said I was only making him madder..I know I hurt us both. We were together for 3 and a half years and were talking about getting married…please help me…
