Blast from the past... Anybody experienced this?

Today, my partner and I went for a bite to eat at a restaurant slightly out of the way.

I go to the bar to get him a drink and my ex was standing there! My ex was abusive. I haven't seen him for two years. I literally just started shaking on the spot. I rushed back to my table and my partner was asking why I was shaking. I couldn't believe it was visible!

After all of this time, I truly believed I was over what he put me through. And I am, I guess. I'm a stronger person and would never deal with what he put me through again with somebody else, but I couldn't believe the reaction it evoked in me.

Has anybody else ever experienced anything like this? Is it normal? Or am I really not over how he was with me?

It's normal when seeing an ex to feel nervous. Only you know if your over it, unless you spend a good proportion of your life dwelling on the past with him then I'd say your over it
