Out of Site out of Mind
First of all, it’s impossible to forget something that you stare at all day. If you want to move on, but you simultaneously spend hours checking up on what your ex is doing, scrutinizing his every move and studying the people he is spending his time with, you’re setting yourself up to fail. Just as you need physical space so you can learn to exist without your ex, you also need digital space. Relationship therapist and author of The Breakup Bible Rachel Sussman, explains “the more social media there is, the more access you have to what your ex is doing.” Avoiding contact through social media is the only way you can actually clear your mind and focus on moving forward, not being stuck in the past.
