It's almost two years since me and my ex broke up, I still miss her heavily in periods. What I wonder now is: I'm going to a city for the first time in many years, last time I was there it was with my ex, and it was also the place I met my ex and fell in love with her. The whole place reminds me more or less of her, the stores, the park, well everything, even the trains (which is how I will travel). Is there anyway to deal with these memories? Do they get better when I've spent some time there? Just the thought of going into the store were we first kissed or the park were we lay in the grass destroys my insides I really want to go there again, it's a nice city where I would someday like to move to, I don't want this shit to hold me back anymore, but on the other side I don't want to completely crush my heart once more by reliving everything we did. Any help, suggestions, or actually anything is welcome here. Just for your information, me and my ex were together for 3 years, it was a happy relationship and we were best friends, just so you know that this isn't a thread made for whining, I am dead serious about this and really want to know how to deal with this stuff, which clearly stops me from doing what I want with my life.
