But sometimes my island refugees escape via social media raft and decide it’s time to tell Facebook all about their super awesome new relationships.
And then I want to escape to a remote, Internet-free island IRL.
You start to wonder how your ex is or what your ex is up to.
So you get on Facebook to have a little peek into the life of your ex.
Does it really matter which one of you starts dating first and does it that he’s dating?A little bit of bruised ego is natural but if you become consumed by his new relationship or exploits, it may be time to ask whether you’re really over him, and if you are; what is it about your own life that makes this news so unbearable.Often you’ll find that the reason it bothers you is because you have taken his actions as some sort of reflection on you and the past you shared together.You check the rest of the photos and see that this other person invading your ex’s profile pictures is your ex’s new beau.And the worst part is that each photo is radiating joy and sunshine and all the good things in the world. This probably shouldn’t bother you all that much if you’re already in a happy state in your life.
Whatever it is that governs their choice, you’re unlikely to know what that is, and you really don’t need to.
