Boughtandpaidfor Posted March 16, 2017 Share Posted March 16, 2017 Relationship ended badly a year ago. I'm so sick of Facebook that I've deactivated my account several times. But I always go back to it. This time I had the bright idea of just unfriending everyone I know (because it's just Facebook, it's not real life, so what does it matter). That has really worked. Facebook has lost both its attraction and its painful edges. It doesn't really have any impact on my life in terms of losing friends or disconnecting as I can contact anyone I really know in other ways. It's still possible to see some people's pages. So I've blocked her, blocked our mutual friends who aren't really my friends. But I'm still compulsively going to pages and groups with pictures of her and people I know. I can feel that I'm somehow looking for something when I do it. But I'm not sure what it is......some intimacy or connection I guess. It feels really self-punishing and stupid. She is great but the relationship sucked and I'm happy it's over. I am lonely for sure but I don't want to get back together. Grateful for any insight that might make me see why I keep doing this to myself. Therapy's helping but got to stop self-sabotaging. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
