Are you going through a breakup? We all know how painful it is to deal with heartbreak. Reminiscing those golden times when our supposed soulmate was by our side. The world was a bed of roses and every day was just perfect. We resent the separation and glorify our ex with all our might.
Let us tell you how that exaltation of your ex is ridiculously overrated. Yes, you read it right. Latest scientific research has it that our brain fluids are the reason we put our ex on a pedestal post breakup. You can follow the link to read more about it. That strong urge to go back to the ex is just those chemicals messing with you.
Our brain is divided into numerous parts that are each responsible for something. During initial stages of love, the elements, prefrontal cortex and amygdala, which manage pessimism and criticism stop functioning. Thus promoting us to go on with the relationship happily.
This chemical reaction is so thoroughly seated in our brain that we can’t let it go even after breaking up. This happens because we are, in a way, addicted to our beloved. Scientific research shows that people deeply in love will experience a release of “dopamine” because of the caudate nucleus.
This caudate nucleus fuels motivation and objective directed conduct. More commonly known as the “rewards system” makes us ignore the negative aspects of our ex and only recall the positives. When this happy phase ends with the relationship, it fills us with pain and despair.
Now that you know, it’s time to take control of your emotions. Don’t let chemicals convince you that you need your ex. Remind yourself of the reasons why you’re better off without your ex. Delete the texts, burn the pictures and sing “We are never-ever-ever getting back together!”
