Those who especially have a hard time moving on from their past relationships are the people who are unable to face the truth of their reality. Instead of accepting what had happened to them, they distort the story in their minds. When people try to lie to themselves, they are never able to find resolve in their new relationships. This is because they know in the back of their minds that the story they choose to believe is not the actual truth. This does not sit well in their consciousness, making them forever uneasy about their past relationships. This is because they know in the back of their minds that the story they choose to believe is not the actual truth. In order for anyone to find resolve or closure about something that happened in their past relationships, they must first accept what happened for what it really is. They should not deviate from the truth, because the moment they do so, closure cannot be attained, as the issue is hidden beneath the lies and cannot be tackled properly. It may be tempting to twist an unfavourable incident from your past relationships in your mind so that you do not have to deal with the pain that goes along with knowing the whole truth. However, we must refrain from doing this because although it may be comforting at first, it will only serve to prolong the pain and discomfort in your new relationships. You will never be at peace for so long as you try to believe a lie you told yourself. When you accept the truth of your past relationships for what it really is, it will be like tearing out a band aid –painful, but quick. You will feel the pain of the truth, however, you will be able to move on from it much faster than if you continue to lie to yourself. Try to be strong by facing your past relationships for what it truly is. Do not try to paint a better picture of it in hopes that someday you might believe it. The truth will always be residing within and haunting you, lest you finally face it.
