When you see your Ex-partner, there's always this feeling that arises within you, deep in your heart, especially when you remember how it ended.

Most times you hear people say they felt horrible after running into their Exes in that awkward moment, especially when their hearts were broken as a result of the split.

So how do you get your act together when you accidentally meet your Ex-partner?

Compile by Beliefnet, here are 6 ways to keep your emotions in check when you run into an Ex-partner.

  1. Release Wrath: So maybe there are still some hurtful feelings or rejection. This is normal. If you need to cry, scream, or write an “I hate you” poem in the journal, or break a dish—do it. Whatever it takes (don't break the law), don’t keep it inside. You can try writing a letter to them, and not send it. This also helps process emotions.

  2. Count Blessings: This encounter is a reminder of all that was wrong with them, count your blessings. Go online and read what people have experienced, or worse. Many share their encounters, and how to deal with unresolved feelings.

  3. Talk to a Counselor: Talk to a counselor if it’s really bothering you. Wounds sometimes take a long time to heal, and there might be issues that need to be brought up in order to heal.

  4. Remove All Traces: Remind yourself that if they didn’t want you, you are better off. Remove all traces of them until you are healed.

  5. Embrace Life: Get with friends, and have fun. Go shopping, take a trip, or do something where you can look forward a good time.

  6. Give Yourself Time: Your emotions match that of a roller coaster ride, now, that's OK. Allow time, and space to work through this encounter, and remember to love yourself though the pain. Also find encouragement, and hope in the little things that make you happy.
