Learn how to be more loving from your past pain, not how to be more closed.
It’s perfectly healthy to forgive, but it’s not OK to be unwise.
So, full disclosure- I briefly used Facebook and Twitter 5 times during my haitus to pimp blog posts, and I’m okay with that, because it was for the sole purpose of sharing value (and getting more pageviews, duh). I’ve written more words in the past 30 days than I have in my entire life- well, maybe besides that year I took AP English.
The first couple of days were full of withdrawl symptoms- I’d open a new tab in Chrome and start typing without even thinking about it. I have over 20 blog posts drafted that I’m working on tweaking to perfection.
For you, being smart means that after you leave the relationship you shouldn’t go back!
It’s amazing how much you have to talk about when you don’t have a constant plug into their life. I love the information diet that I’m on and all I need to do is not plug back in.
I built stronger friendships and forged a couple of new ones, including a relationship. If I want to read or post on social media, I will do it consciously and thoughtfully- so I won’t be using Twitter or Facebook from my phone.
Doing it for a short interval is perfect and even in spurts I find it incredibly beneficial, it clears my head and opens me up for the day.
Not knowing what your friends are doing every second is liberating.
