FACEBOOK CATHARSIS



Over the years, clients have referred to how they have ripped up, burnt, or even cut their former spouse out of, family photographs. I understand, however, that, in an age where couples take more photos than ever and proudly display them online in Facebook albums, a more cathartic remedy is available in the form of the delete button. It is no longer enough to simply change one’s status from “in a relationship” to “single”, but, and in addition, complete healing apparently stems from the deletion of all those offending pictures.


Ah, if only life were really that simple.

I think it's imperative to wait a year before going through old photos and tearing them up. Maybe salvage some to put together an album for your kids. They would likely appreciate the memories from their childhood prior to the divorce. Facebook is different though and hey, it's your personal page so I guess delete away...

It sounds too easy to me :) I don't know if anything in our crazy world today is really that easy.

I truly believe that Facebook is flat-out dangerous when it comes to relationships. I have seen far too many friends who have had relationships and marriages torn apart due to immature Facebook-based squabbles and extra-marital affairs. I refuse to "friend" my significant other for that very reason, but leave the door open if they ever want to view my account.
