it is 18 months this coming Tuesday since Alan passed away, I came off social media for the exact same reason you state, I didn’t want to see it read about what others were doing It was May when he passed and the last thing I wanted to read about was the holidays and outings everyone was enjoying during the summer months and it was a hot and sunny summer too, I signed out of social media there and then, the Christmas celebrations were equally too much, so I deactivated my account.
it was only yesterday that I felt strong enough to reactivate it, even then I went through my settings to prevent pop ups from ‘friends’ who I know regularly post their whole lives for the world to see .
it is still very very raw for you and I can understand completely how upsetting seeing posts of others enjoying their lives, it was equally upsetting to see close family nembers posting celebrations during the 11 days between Alan’s passing and his funeral, then in the following weeks too. as though he never mattered to them. I don’t think they realised how upsetting it was for me and all they were doing in their eyes was living their own lives.
doesn’t make it any easier though does it?☆ just take each day at a time, do what helps you through these dark days. if necessary take it one step at a time. it does ease as the time passes, may not feel as though it would as we live through our grief, because live through it is all we can do. my bad days are less frequent now oh I still have them but the better days are increasing slowly.
take care lovely lady ☆
hope today is an improvement on yesterday and tomorrow is an improvement on today ☆
