Sometimes keeping your ex blocked from your social media handles is the right thing to do. Breakups are hurtful, especially when all those memories resurface when you come across them on social media. You are constantly checking what your ex has been up to, where they go, or who they meet. At this point, you begin asking yourself, “Should I block my ex?”
For some, this may be a bitter move, but for others, it is necessary for that final closure and for me it is wanting my inner peace. You began to think night and day about them and asking questions like, “do I still have feelings for them” and by blocking them are you avoiding something that might hurt you more?
There are many reasons behind why you blocked them, but it’s not because you hate them, but you’re simply looking to prioritize your needs before theirs. So here’s a poem that describes why you did what you did.
Why I Blocked You Today
I blocked you today
because I was ready
to delete you
and your memories
from my life.
I was ready to clean my news feed,
getting rid of your dust.
I’m overseeing what you like
and where you are.
I’m over waiting for one like
or one comment from you.
I’m done trying to impress you
when you’re probably not even looking.
I’m done fighting for your attention
when you’re giving it to someone else.
I blocked you today
because I wanted to remember who I was
before you came into my life
and made me hate myself
I blocked you because
I have to love myself.
I blocked you so I could post things for me
instead of trying to send you a message.
Or maybe I’m trying to send
one final message to you:
you can’t reach me anymore,
you now belong to a list of strangers
I’ve never met.
You now can’t like my pictures
or see my posts
or see me.

When relationships become toxic, it is important that we let them go. It takes a lot of strength to move away from someone you were in love with but that’s what I did, I blocked my ex, and I have never been happier. You can too! Focus on loving yourself, and focus on what you need to be happy, and do that. You deserve it!
