My ex blocked me on everything | Why did my ex block me? – Relationship Advice
Today I’m going to share with you guys why your ex blocked you on everything and how to handle it.
Why did my ex block me?
This is the infamous question.
I’ll go through the explanation by pretty much sharing my own personal experience..
Your ex blocked you so that they could move on.
I know for me personally, when I blocked an ex it was because I knew I’d want to check their social media. I would be going through this breakup, feeling all of this hurt, and I’d miss them. I’d want to go to their Instagram account or Facebook page to see if they posted. Unfortunately over time I realized that a lot of the people I dated would end up sharing with the world about there next relationship or sexual conquest. This would cause me to feel even more pain. Eventually I realized that whenever I went through a breakup, it’d just be easier to block the person who is now my ex. It would keep me from checking their page every hour. It would keep me from getting hurt even more and it would help me to move forward instead of being stuck on something that has ended.
Blocking your ex is pretty much a self-care method in my book. It keeps you from focusing on what no longer exists. The relationship is over and for my own mental well-being, it was just easier to block someone than to have that access to their life when I was clearly going through this transitional period of letting go of what wasn’t meant to be.
Your ex blocked you so you couldn’t see them and have access to their life.
When breakups happen, some people prefer to block their ex almost as a punishment. It’s almost to say “Well we aren’t together.. so you don’t need to have access to what I’m doing in my life. You don’t need to know anything about what’s happening with me since we aren’t together.” It’s pretty much just a way to say “You’re cut off.”
Another reason why your ex blocked you is because they might think you don’t care about them.
Depending on how things ended between you two and whether the breakup was actually mutual, your ex blocked you because they probably think…
“Things are over between us. They wanted it to be over. So they probably don’t even care about me. If they don’t care about me, then I’ll just block them. They don’t care.. so I don’t care either.”
Now that you know the potential reasons why your ex blocked you, it’s time for you to move forward.
How to deal with being blocked and letting the relationship go
Realize that you can’t control what people do.
I hate for this to sound mean, but I’ll tell it like it is… The relationship is over and whether you like it or not, the person has shut the door on you having access to them. There is nothing you can do about it at this point.
It hurts and it sucks, but it’s okay. You can’t control other people. You can only control how you react to other people.
Take this time to grieve the relationship.
Go through the process of the emotions. Feel sad or mad. Listen to some sad love songs. Express yourself by creating art. Go to the batting cages and hit some baseballs. Buy a punching bag. Write it all down. Visit a therapist. Talk to some friends. Do whatever you need to do to get whatever you’re feeling out.

Accept what has happened.
Understand that it has happened. It may not have been what you wanted, but understand that you can’t change it. Don’t force what is not meant to be. Things happen for a reason and it’s all apart of getting you to where you need to be.
Focus on you and move forward.
Take this time to focus on what you want. Focus on your own self-care. Do things for yourself that make you feel good. Order some food for delivery. Watch a funny sitcom. Go out with friends and family. Go workout. Enjoy your life and do things for yourself that make you feel better.
