The World Wide Web brings us closer than meets the eye. Even if we end a relationship with a person, we often remain “friends” on social networks – on Facebook, VKontakte, Instagram. Psychologists say that this is wrong. Find out why!
By deleting your ex from friends or unsubscribing from updates to his page on social networks, you will not only save your nerves, but also get over the breakup more easily.. There are several good reasons for this.
1. Out of sight
Regularly viewing posts and photos of your ex-lover on the Internet, you continue to experience disappointment over and over again. Even if in fact the relationship has long exhausted itself, there is a risk of starting to unravel the messages “between the lines”, which in reality may not be. Such an occupation leads to paranoia and prevents you from switching to a new man.
2. Don’t worry about your posts
If your ex isn’t on your friends or mailing list, he won’t be able to read your posts. This makes it possible to breathe freely and not to sweat, carefully choosing the words for each post. Plus, you won’t be tempted to flaunt your candid selfies., to demonstrate to the former partner how much he has lost. It is unlikely that this will help restore the relationship. But other friends obviously will not appreciate such behavior.
3. No need to endlessly refresh the page, waiting for messages
Seriously, your sleep will become stronger and calmer when you realize that there can be no letters from your ex in principle – after all, you have closed access to your page. Why bother in this case?
4. Less Risk of Writing Something You’ll Regret Later
Some time after the breakup, the temptation to “break loose” and send an ardent message to the former will be especially great. When emotions subside, you will understand that such an act will in no way elevate you in the eyes of the one with whom you broke off relations.. And when there is simply no one to write to, it is much easier to hold on.
5. Away, nostalgia!
In social networks, you have access to old photos and records at any time. What are the notifications on Facebook about how many years you have been friends. When there is no person in your friendlist whose memories bring pain, then posts that drive you into depression, also no.
Remember, when you close one door, you open another. Social networks open up a lot of opportunities – use them to your advantage!
