Break ups are never easy, but when it involves being blocked by your ex on all social media platforms, email and text messages it can be especially difficult to process.
Not having the closure of being able to communicate with your former partner or obtaining any sort of explanation for their behaviour can be incredibly hurtful and leave you feeling confused.
In this blog post, I will explore the various possible reasons why an ex might block someone from reaching out as well as offering advice on how to handle the situation if you’re in this position yourself.
Why did my ex block me on everything and what does it mean for our relationship?
The reasons behind someone blocking you may vary. Generally speaking, it may be a sign that they need space to sort out their feelings. Perhaps they are feeling overwhelmed by emotions or memories associated with seeing your posts, so they block you as a way of protecting themselves from those feelings. It could also be that they are trying to move on and don’t want reminders of their past relationship with you clogging up their news feed.
On the other hand, blocking could also be a form of manipulation or control. If this is the case, then it is important to recognize that this type of behavior is not healthy and should not be tolerated in any kind of relationship. There are healthier ways to handle breakups such as communication and respect for each other’s feelings.
What Should I Do Now?
First off, take some time for yourself before deciding on how best to approach this situation. Consider if the relationship was healthy or mutually beneficial for both parties involved – if not, then maybe it’s time to move on.
If however you believe that there is still something worth salvaging from the relationship then communicate with your ex in a respectful manner about what their decision means for both of you going forward.
Despite being blocked, try sending them an email expressing your thoughts and feelings in an honest but non-confrontational way – after all communication is key!
How can I get my ex to unblock me so that we can talk again?
Understand Why They Blocked You – The first step in getting your ex to unblock you is understanding why they may have blocked you in the first place. Were there any arguments between you two? Did something happen that caused them hurt or anger? Knowing the reason could help give you insight into how best to approach the situation.
Give Them Space & Time- It’s important not to pressure them into unblocking you right away. Giving them time and space allows them the opportunity to cool off if they are still angry and process their feelings. If they do decide to unblock you, it will likely be because they felt comfortable enough on their own terms, not because of something external (like pressure).
Be Respectful & Understanding- When communicating with your ex, make sure that your words reflect respect and understanding for their feelings. Letting them know that you value their opinion and feelings will show them that you are open and willing to listen.
Showing empathy towards what they experienced during your break up may also help demonstrate that even though things didn’t turn out as planned, both parties can still move forward respectfully.
If my ex blocks me, does that mean they don’t want anything to do with me anymore?
Breaking off a relationship can be difficult, and it is understandable to feel hurt when an ex blocks you. Blocking someone from your social media though is not necessarily done as a way to send a message.
It could be that they want to eliminate the temptation of interacting with you, or simply do not want reminders of the past but still care about what happens in your life.
If your ex chose to block you and it has left you feeling uncertain and lost, decide if there are ways for the two of you to have conversations without involving technology or can provide some space for yourself to allow those feelings to pass with time.
Blocking someone from social media can be a difficult decision to make, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that your ex no longer cares about you. It could just be their way of protecting themselves and trying to move on. However, if communication is still desired then try sending them an email expressing your thoughts in an understanding and respectful manner.
Remember that relationships require effort from both parties involved so take some time for yourself before deciding how best to approach the situation. If all else fails, let go and allow those feelings to pass with time – there are always better things ahead!
