Are you confused how to handle social media and a breakup? Do you block your ex? Delete them? Unfriend them? Or should you let them watch what is going on in your life. In this article we look at various scenarios and how to handle them.
First we must know that every relationship is different and every break-up is different , in this article we look at it from the angle that you are hurting and have that crazy feeling, and you think “oh when i block my ex that will send a strong message that i have moved on”
Do you truly move on faster from a breakup when you block your ex than when you don’t? Many ex partners end up being good friends who eventually do a lot of great things together despite the end of their relationship.
There is no context under the condition of abuse where you should still have that person on your social media space, if it was an abusive relationship well you can delete that media platform from your phone or block them people can and should always do what’s best for them, so far they are happy and content.
blocking an ex can never be wrong no matter how you want to view it. The choice to cut them out of your life after a breakup is valid majorly because if the relationship is over and you need to move on from that chapter, doing away with anything that may drag you back to the past needs to be kept faraway from you.
Blocking an ex, in essence, is for your own good. For you to move on without their presence, or having them pop into your DM when they like, messing up your progress in the life after them.
And if you’re concerned that it will come off as petty, you shouldn’t be. Yes, maybe your ex will think you’re being petty but you cannot control what they think about you. What you need to do instead, is make sure you create the appropriate conditions for you to heal and if that means you have to take them off social media for a while, then so be it.
