At the onset of your break-up, you’re going to want to act out. And since we live in the digital age, you are also going to do it online by doing unhealthy digital habits that will hurt you more.
Move On Faster By Avoiding Unhealthy Digital Habits
Don’t worry. The way you feel right now is normal. The good news is, it is also temporary. Just like when we lose a loved one, you are going to go through different phases, starting with anger. When you are in your anger phase, make sure that you avoid doing the following unhealthy digital habits:
As crazy as it might sound, you should not block your former partner from social media or any other sites. Why? Because, blocking causes you more pain. It also bring up feelings of hatred and anxiety. It may be painful to see that your ex is happier, but power through it.
2. Keep Memories
Erase those photos ASAP. Don’t even think about keeping them in a save, private folder. You’re just making yourself feel bad by taking a look at all the wonderful memories that you have had. The goal is to move forward and not get stuck in the past.
3. Checking Up
You are going to feel such a strong urge to check up on your former partner. What is he or she doing? Who is he or she with? It’s a bad idea. If some of your ex’s posts comes up by accident on your feed, then just scroll past it. What you want to prevent here is stalking or developing an obsession.
