Healing from past bad relationships requires a little work to understand what happened
Healing from the past doesn’t mean just moving on without some real understanding of the dynamics and personalities that hurt. We heal from past relationships by learning from them. While it’s never a good idea to dwell on the past, it can help to analyze relationships that went wrong so you can see what you might be able to do differently next time.
