Tip for Being Friends with an Ex

I just recently had my heart broken in the worst way. Both of us want to remain best friends (the way it was before the relationship). The best tip I can give is for the person who had their heart broken. Forgive your Ex, and don't blame yourself. Also, do not in anyway nag or bother your Ex about the relationship or try and control them like your still together. It takes time...sometimes a LONG time, but if you heal your heart in healthy ways then it can be accomplished. Well...at least I'm clinging to this hope. Focus on your life and making it better and you'll be stronger for it in the end.
