THEY MIGHT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR FEELINGS
If you were the one who was broken up with, reaching out could make you vulnerable. Your ex might tell you what you want to hear and then hurt you all over again.
IT COULD HURT THEM

YOU COULD BE RUINING POTENTIAL RELATIONSHIPS OR DATES
When you constantly wonder what your ex is doing or try to reach out to them, you miss other opportunities. You won’t be as open to going on a date with someone else, and if you do go on dates, you won’t be fully present.
IT COULD MAKE YOU LOOK DESPERATE
If you text your ex, they will assume you want to get back together. Even if you don’t say that you want to, that is the message you will send if you reach out to your ex. It comes across as desperate to a person who is looking for flaws, imperfections, or weaknesses in others.

Think about what you are expecting from contacting them. Whatever it is you are expecting might not happen. Even if it goes well initially, the old issues are bound to come back up and result in another fight or break up.
YOU LOSE YOUR SENSE OF SELF-WORTH AND DEVALUE YOURSELF
No one is perfect, but your imperfections don’t mean that you aren’t worthy or valuable. You are good enough the way you are right now, and anyone would be lucky to have you. When you send a text message to your ex, you risk losing your self-worth and devalue yourself.
