Depends on how it will affect you. If it makes you feel good to help, maybe. If it’s going to cause you more hurt and resentment, stay away from that negativity. They can easily pay people to help with a move. From now on they have to work out how to do things without you. That’s what breaking up means.

I agree and well put

I helped my ex pack up and move out. I played it's always sunny in the background, that show is too absurd to be sad to. Since i was staying, I felt I had to help. And some of the things he thought were his were hilarious - he wasnt trying to be sneaky. It was just funny. And we had to split up stuff that we bought jointly.

Yes it's not something I regret in the least. We actually got on really well that day. It was somewhere between a drunken wake and cleaning up after a wild party. It gave some semblance of respect/worth to the five years we were together.

I have been in a similar situation.. it really depends on how things ended and how it may affect you. Although with that said it may help heal the pain and bring some closure. Not to say it will be easy but don’t start to feel remorse or resentment. Remain positive and remember things happen for a reason!

Didn’t even know you could put name and picture

It was mutually caused but I wanted to try to repair while they moved on

Nope!!!

Help!!!!

I’d help out regardless and be good person. Unless the ex cheated. In that case, fuck the ex.
