- Personality Clash of the Titans: If your personalities mixed like oil and water, that friction doesn’t just vanish post-breakup. It can manifest as disrespect.
- Defensive Shield Up: Think of disrespect as your ex’s emotional shield. It’s less about hurting you and more about protecting themselves from further emotional battle scars.
