During my current stay in Germany I heard a saying which at first I didn’t understand for I like iced coffee especially in summer.
Germans say „Kalter Kaffee schmeckt nicht“ (Cold coffee doesn’t taste) referring to former relationships and that you should not come back to your girlfriend/boyfriend once you broke up.
I know that feeling when a couple weeks or months after a relationships you suddenly start remembering all the great moments you had with your ex SO. And that is the dangerous moment.
The most multifunctional self-protecting quality of our brains is to forget bad memories in order to not to think about all the time but focus on the positive things in life. Hence we forget the concomitants that led to the breakup. We then try to justify her/his actions that made us make the decision we now regret.
STICK TO IT
I don’t generalize but 99% of the breakup cases you had a good reason to break up. Don’t let your brain fool you, don’t call, don’t text (usually when you had a couple drinks), don’t make it difficult for the two of you once again.
Believe the German saying, Germans are quite smart people, COLD COFFEE DOESNT TASTE.
