from time to time i find out about an ex meeting someone, or even getting married, and in most cases i've detached myself and can be happy for them.
but then this oddly unhealthy emotion shows up when exes do things that, for some strange reason, i thought i would be part of. for example, we'll make "plans" to do something and break up before carrying them out. then they'll do them with a subsequent s.o. and that will be the pang i feel. and i'm aware it is ridiculous.
