Following are 3 ways to tell if you’re really over your ex-boyfriend. If you discover that you’re not totally over him and that your heart has been broken, then please allow the Scriptures following the mini-test to heal you and make you whole. Repeat them out loud to get them ingrained in your spirit to let the healing within begin today.
If you’re guilty of any of the following then you may not truly be over your ex:
1. You still talk about him to your girlfriends, your mother, your sister, or anyone who has an ear to hear. Whether what you share about him is good or bad, if he’s still on your mouth, he’s still on your mind.
2. You consistently or even periodically check his Facebook page or other social networking sites for his latest update mainly to, as you tell yourself, “just check on him,” but really you do it to ‘read between the lines’ and see if he’s gotten a new girlfriend yet, or if he’s still thinking about you.
3. You often find yourself still daydreaming and meditating about good times with him and the fun times the two of you shared – while often conveniently not being able to recall all the bad times, which were the main reasons the two of you broke up in the first place. Remember, ya’ll broke up with each other for a reason.
If you fall into any one of these categories with your ex, then you may not really be over him yet and your heart may still be broken.
No worries, though, because starting today you can choose to not talk about him anymore, not check his Facebook page anymore, and meditate on the future that God has for you which doesn’t include him – starting today you can choose to move on.
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Also, here are more Scriptures to heal and mend a broken heart:

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
