Glad he’s gone, but why do I feel so lost?

It's normal to feel a little weird when your ex gets married. Transitions suck.

Dear Carolyn: My ex is getting married this weekend. While I no longer have feelings for him, I’ve been in a funk for several days, and I’m dreading the onslaught of social media posts from mutual friends who will be at the wedding. Since I am truly over him, I’m not sure what this is about — feeling like I have “lost” somehow? Ew. Any suggestions for getting through the next few days?— Ex

Ex: “Lost”? Ew.

Sometimes transitions just suck, even when your part of the transition is only awareness of someone else’s transition.
