When I broke up with my partner, I immediately thought of unfriending her on Facebook, blocking her on Twitter, and removing her from my Instagram feed. I felt that creating this distance would allow me to move on easier. But is that always the right thing to do after a breakup? This woman disagrees. Read on!
As expected, it was a painful event that left her in tears for weeks on end.
The only difference now is that they are no longer together. But even if that's the case, she couldn't find the courage to delete or unfollow him on Facebook.
But why shouldn't she do that? If I were in her situation, I would have ended every possible communication line between the two of us.
He would probably even have a new girlfriend, who will only make her sad again.
Think about it. If you unfollowed or deleted your former lover from Facebook, would that really stop you from thinking about him or her?
Since she knew what was going on with him, she would not imagine what was happening and end up with a wrong mindset.
Even if she was actually hurt by what happened, she didn't choose to remove him because it could make him think that he meant that much to her.
She didn't listen to her friends' advice, and it worked out for her.
Once you've completely moved on, don't you want to be friends with that person? The two of you might not meant to be lovers, but what about being friends instead?
You're not doing this in order to get back with him/her. You're doing this because you know that the two of you can still have a decent social relationship.
Even if you will initially think about your ex, preventing any chance of seeing that person online or offline will make it easier for you to move on.
If you delete your ex on Facebook, you will look childish. But if you simply unfollow your ex, you will have the option to follow him or her once you feel okay again.
Still, everyone has his or her own way of dealing with love and pain. What have you done in your past relationship?
