It's always the same with breakups: initial shock, pain, hurt, resentment, depression, and so on. But don't fret, once the dust clears you'll realize that getting back with your ex is not impossible. But first, focus on feeling better about yourself. You can't get your ex back if you mope around all day. The show (or in this case, life) must go on. Have a look at these dialogues or quotes from the movies. They could clue you in and be your guide in your relationship dilemma.
"Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies"
(Shaw Shank Redemption)
If you really want to get your ex back, then it's important that you don't lose hope. Right now, hope is the only thing you going, the only thing you can rely on. If you truly believe that what you and your ex shared was special then there is chance you'll get it back. Like they say in the movies, "no good thing ever dies".
"We are who we are, how we got here doesn't matter. What matters is what do we do now?"
(Deep End of the Ocean)
Problems are inevitable in relationships, how you handle them is what counts. Whatever issues you and your ex had belongs in the past. What do you do now? How about resolving your issues and burying your anger. Consider each others' opinions and don't be too critical.
"I'd rather have a lifetime with you than to live all the ages of this world alone"
(Lord of the Rings)
There are some things in life worth saving, and a relationship with the man you love is one of them. When the breakup is still new, then it's better to respect his wishes and keep your distance. Use this time to become emotionally stronger as well. After all the arguments, you both need a breather.
"Love is about making chances"
(The Sweetest Thing)
You can't resign to the idea that it's all over. If you feel that there's still something there, then take the chance and try to get your ex back. Remind him that you're still the same girl he fell in love with. If you are truly meant to be together, then it will happen. Be patient and play your cards right. Prove to him that you're willing to make the relationship work by making the necessary changes like changing bad habits and attitudes.
