“When I met my ex-boyfriend, I believed that despite of the fact that he was religious and I wasn’t, our love was strong enough to keep the relationship going. I thought that if we make some compromises here and there we would manage. Unfortunately it became too much of a barrier between us and After 1.5 years we ended our relationship. I was heartbroken for a long time.”
“So how did you get over it?”
“I allowed myself to cry and feel the pain. It took a long time but eventually I got over him.”
(Tunis, Tunisia)
