So me and my ex broke up and like I keep checking his facebook. Every time I go on there I see something that hurts my feelings every time. How do I stop worrying about what he's up to? I can't talk to him we broke up on bad terms..

Some of the best advice I've ever received about Facebook drama is this: Don't compare your insides to his outsides. People generally put on their best face when it comes to cyber communities-They put up smiling happy photos and status updates to match. It's not real day to day life! Hardly anyone will write about how insecure they felt that day or how they have regrets about dealing with so and so. So you are feeling things on the inside and comparing it to how your ex is portraying himself on the outside. You may never get to know how he really feels deep down, but what matters is how YOU feel. You are only responsible for yourself and your actions :). If you can't bring yourself to delete or block him, set a goal for how many days you will go without "peeking" at his profile. Heck-give yourself a reward for when you reach your goal, and then set another goal. Every day you peek you are forcing yourself to start at "Day One" again. After a while it will become less and less enticing and it won't seem as relevant to your life.1
