Is it okay to be friends with your ex?

The first answer that came to my mind was No! I have heard people saying that staying friends with your ex is like kidnappers staying in touch after they set you free.
We may not realise this immediately, but keeping your ex as a friend can constantly pull you down and prevent you from moving on. But yes, if you want a second chance at your relationship, than continuing as a friend may create a miracle!

Life never stops for anyone – neither you nor your ex. So, there is ultimately no meaning in staying connected with someone you have no future with. I personally believe that we have to let go of our past.
