As Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone gear up for their new film Tamasha, we can’t help but wonder that one should definitely learn from them and be friends even after the relationship is over. Here are 5 reasons on why you should be friends with your Ex.


1) It helps you move on!

When a relationship gets over, there is a lot of anger, remorse and sadness. If closure is not achieved then it consumes your brain and will not let you move on. By being friends with your ex you will be able to move on much faster in life.


2) You become mature



What doesn’t break you, makes you wiser

Holding on to a past relationship makes one think about it non stop. It stops one from concentrating on other aspects of life. The biggest self realization and maturity comes when a person realizes that it did not work and it is time to move on. You become mature in such a way that you can come face to face with your ex and not hide from them.


3) Makes you look forward to better things in life.

When one door closes another one opens up and it is the same with relationships. If one does not work out then it isn’t the end of the world, something much better is waiting. With this though in mind, one can be friends with their ex and yet wait for their perfect soul mate.


4) Makes you give yourself priority 


To live a better life it is important to give priority to your own self. When a person is in a bad relationship, they still try to compromise and make things work out. But sometimes, certain things cannot be fixed and it becomes important to give your own self some importance. By becoming friends with your ex, you say to yourself that I am my priority, not them.


5) You never know when you may have to deal with them again!

Ranbir and Deepika are a perfect example to this.

If you and your ex belong to the same profession, then there is a very likely chance that you may have to deal with them on a regular basis. Having a bad break up will make it extremely awkward in your professional life. But if you are amicable with your ex, then this helps you concentrate on your career as well.



We know it is not easy to get over a relationship and be friends with your Ex. But it sure is very important in today’s generation when you have to give importance to your own self and move on.
