    My ex bf found a replacement. And I know I should be happy for him, but I just can't help feeling sick inside and just a feeling of pure envy.
    Is this feeling normal?

    Think women tend to feel envy more than men, particularly women that break up with men use the break up as a kind of have a go at the guy as in 'he wont find another girl easy' and can come as a shock/let down when he does. Would say its perfectly normal, its just something you'll have to work your way through which probably won't sound great. Probably best moving on quickly so you don't hear about what this guy is doing anymore so you can let someone else into your life.

    I hear you brother/sister.
    When I broke up with one of my boyfriends, I was devastated and wanted him back (The reason we broke up was an argument over the possibility of me having a brain tumour) but when he finally replied to my messages, he posted a pic of him and his new man, and I just felt hatred towards both my ex and his partner. So yes, perfectly normal
