The advent of social media has altered the way we relate with each especially in relationships. Unable to resist the temptation to tell the world about who we are dating, we sometimes leave a digital footprint that may haunt us in the event of a break-up.
As they say, the internet never forgets, and after a break-up, you also get constant reminders of the good times you had with your ex. It can be really hard to move on after a break-up.
Consequently, the best way to move on is to unfriend your ex from all social media pages due to these reasons.
1) It enables you to avoid stalking them
The break-up could have hit you hard and if you remain friends with your ex, you are guaranteed a front-row seat to their lives. You could see them seemingly handling the break-up well while you are struggling to come to terms. Unfriending them makes it possible for you not to see how good they are without you, even when they repeatedly told you he/she would never enjoy life without you.
2) It can be an obstacle to moving on
Just seeing your ex on social media makes you think about them, albeit unnecessarily. You begin fantasising about the moments you shared and probably start wishing that he/she was back in your life. When you constantly view your ex’s social media profiles, it can be an obstacle to letting in a new person into your life.
3) No competition to move on
When you avoid contact with your ex, you won’t be tempted to compete with them on who is handling the relationship better than the other. Their status won’t be hurting you and make you think that they’ve already moved on. Every post they make including random memes won’t make you feel like you are the target.
