After a breakup, your head is all over the place. Your heart is broken but maybe your mind is furious, relieved, or a million other emotions that just don’t seem to line up. This means it’s pretty hard to decide the best way to go about healing and moving on. It’s a lengthy affair for sure, but you can certainly help things along. Should you block your ex as part of the recovery process? If you relate to any of these things, you might be better going no contact, at least for a while.
He’s not the type to give up easily.
If you were the one who ended the relationship and your ex wanted to stay together, it might be better to block them, at least for a while. This is especially true if he’s very persistent and keeps bombarding you with texts or messages on social media in which he tries to convince you to come back to him. If you’ve asked him for space and made it clear that your decision is final and he’s still not taking the hint, you need to block him until he’s had a chance to process and accept that it’s over.
You feel weak when it comes to walking away.
You ended the relationship because you knew it was the right thing to do and that you’re toxic together, but that doesn’t mean you don’t still care about him. The more you think about all the things you miss about him, the easier it is to forget all the reasons you left him in the first place. If you think you might reach out to him and reunite in a moment of weakness, block him and save yourself.
You’re spending all your time stalking him on social media.
It’s natural to want to know what your ex is up to after you’re no longer in a relationship, but stalking them online won’t serve you in any way. In fact, it’ll only make it that much harder to move on. If you’re spending all your time online scrolling through his Instagram feed or reading through his status updates on Facebook trying to figure out what they mean and if they’re cryptic messages to you, it’s time to block him to restore your sanity.
You secretly hope you’ll get back together.
He dumped you and was pretty frank about why he no longer wants to be with you. However, that hasn’t stopped you from holding out hope that one day he’ll realize the error of his ways and come back to you. In the meantime, you’ve thought about sending him a few texts, reminiscing about great times you had together and trying to pull at his heartstrings a bit. Girl, don’t do it. Block him and get a grip. You’re so much better than that.
You’re feeling a bit petty.
So he screwed you over and you left him in the dust. Great job! However, this is not the time now to start posting sexy selfies on Instagram or trying to make your life look so fabulous on social media that he gets jealous and is absolutely desperate to win you back. First of all, you’re forcing the issue – he obviously didn’t value you enough when you were together, so don’t give him the satisfaction now. It’s tempting, I know, which is why if you block your ex, you’ll be doing yourself a big favor.
