18. Take a Break from Social Media

Social media can be a great way to stay connected with friends and family, but it can also be a source of stress and negative emotions, especially during a breakup. Seeing posts from your ex or friends can trigger negative emotions and lead to feelings of jealousy, anger, or sadness. It can also be a way to compare yourself to others, leading to feelings of inadequacy or low self-esteem.

Taking a break from social media can effectively reduce these negative emotions and focus on yourself. It can be a way to create a safe space for yourself where you’re not constantly bombarded with reminders of your ex or the past relationship. It can also be a way to focus on your own goals and priorities without being distracted by the opinions or experiences of others.

If you do decide to take a break from social media, it’s important to communicate this to your friends and family. Let them know you’re taking a break and will still be available to connect with them through other means. You can also consider using this time to communicate with people more meaningfully, such as meeting up for coffee or having a phone call.
