Our expert says:
It is always one of the costs of forming relationships with people who work in the same organization, that even after a break-up you are likely to see each other. But the reaction depends very much on how you insist on seeing him - if you view this as seeing the love of your life, tragically wrenched from you, you will feel bad. If you view it as a reminder of how lucky you are to no longer be in a relationship with this untrustworthy liar, it cannot be so painful.
Counselling can help you to revise your automatic thoughts and reactions. Work through the anger and pain on your own, so there is none left to well up when you see him.
