I Blocked You Today

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 to 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.

  1. If your gonna ask me to type Amen,and praise Jesus one minute,and then your next post is some Bi-polar,schizophrenic raging rant,then your gone. It really is that simple.

  2. Blocking happens only when you are not strong enough, it means the person is still affecting you. It really doesn’t help. If you really want to detach, just let it be and slowly but surely start letting go….

    1. He blocked me after he broke up with me because he still loved me. He couldn’t handle commitment or a long distance relationship and couldn’t handle me being part of his life still. What made it worse was we had been friends for 25yrs before we got together. Lesson learned – don’t fall in love with a friend

    2. Sulekha Pande believe me I’ve tried – blocking allows you to only repress not get past. Detoxification happens when you choose to not let the person matter… They leave automatically. Trust me been there and it’s a fairly recent experience.

    3. Priya Sinha, healing is a process nobody can accelerate, emotional wounds take longer to heal, but as a Psychoanalyst, my suggestion is always to take your time, because if we try to rush healing, we might end up with more side effects.
      I personally cut myself off totally and use my time forr other better pursuits like reading, listening to music, or writing.
      IME, shutting off works wonders.

    4. I understand your point of view, however shutting off in my experience is never a solution – I believe that is trying to accelerate the process, avoidance is only a short term solution. One will keep repeating these cycles of experiences if we use avoidance. What works better for me is quite simply slowly letting it go and yes diverting your energies into something that gives you peace inside. More importantly understanding what the experience taught me and how it has made me a better person. There is always a lesson. I prefer to understand and use it for my transformation. You don’t need to block someone or shove things under the carpet to get past it. And yes healing takes time and one has to let it happen organically….

    5. Priya Sinha, I think you missed this part of my comment,

      Take your time, because if we try to rush healing, we might end up with more side effects.

      We are all psyched differently and deal with our emotional issues differently.
      I appreciate your way of dealing with yours as well as I do what works for me too.

    4. I agree with this. I blocked him after we first broke up, because I wasn’t strong enough to avoid looking at his page and making myself miserable. Now I’m healed, and I’ve unblocked him because my self-respect is once again strong enough to provide that boundary for me.

  4. That’s sad. I’ve had to do that too. Some people have a difficult time understanding you on f/b.
    It’s not like talking face to face. You never get a second chance to explain yourself. All of a sudden you’re blocked w/ no avenue to amend misunderstandings.
    This only reinforces my belief that friends accept you no matter what their political agenda is or religious affiliation. Small minds seem to amass together. Better to let them be to proliferate on their own.
