Totally Agree with this... A year ago mentioning my ex would have been nothing but unhappy memories but as time goes on and I heal.. I find myself telling stories and remembering the good times and it doesn't hurt anymore. I have no desire to be friends again but its nice to remember there was good. I'd rather remember that then all the bad times.
My bestie makes me laugh. And when we have "drama" it's just us being there for each other through issues. There's only been like one time when we had actual drama. My "friend" group on the other hand is full of drama and people constantly talking behind other people's backs and then acting nice to their face.
