Have you ever had an ex who you can't stop communicating with? We all have that one ex, and we also have an ex who we wish would disappear from our life.

Motivational speaker Sam West now says keeping in touch with an ex shouldn't be a death sentence. 

"Some people break up so that they can work on themselves separately and then come back together. Some work on themselves and then move on.

Keeping in communication with an ex requires maturity. It also depends if you had kids and property together."

Sam however warned that if a relationship is toxic one should run and never look back.

"If the relations were toxic I advise you block each other. Your life is more important than your relationship. Block that person, go mute and let every one of you go their separate ways."

Sam advises that couples should normalize mature breakups.
