Paul and Lilly had gone through a very painful divorce, and like many during their separation, they both had unfriended each other. They did have adult children that were on both of their friend lists on the social network. Unfortunately, neither had blocked the ex nor set the privacy to friends only, and the default setting was used so friends of friends could read posts.
Lilly found out that Paul had been reading her posts and going to her page through the children’s account. One evening Lilly decided she was going to teach Paul a lesson. Lilly posted a detailed description of her sexual activities with her new beau. Then she went on to compare him to Paul including but not limited to their physical abilities. Paul was furious, and without thinking he posted several of the secrets Lilly had shared with him over the years. Her deepest fears and many closely guarded painful memories including how she felt when her parents divorced. He also posted photos of her that Lilly had thought were destroyed long ago. Now all of these posts and photos where public knowledge for the whole world including their parents and children to see. Lilly and Paul had blocked their children from seeing the comments, but many of their friends did, and the children quickly found out.
Before you post anything ask yourself these questions. Do you really want to be known as the person that goes around trashing your ex staying stuck in the mud? How would you feel knowing your parents or children have to explain your posts to their friends?
Divorce is hard everyone has many feeling and emotion that are painful. There will be times you feel like telling the world but in years to come you may not feel the same. Many times people will slip and make a comment. If you have injured your ex-partner in any way through your postings or photos delete them. This is not just a legal issue, but it is a moral issue. You cannot un-ring a bell, newspapers in years past did write retractions. We can not do that as effectively on social media, but you can publicly say I’m sorry I should not have posted the comment or photo the other day and have a song attached like “I hope you dance” and wish your ex well. We all make mistakes at least this action will portray you as a person that is mature enough to admit your mistakes. If your ex want to stay in the mud let them, but now is your time to shine and be above all the mess.
