Yvonne Thomas offers Expertise on Brit + Co about “Stalking Your Ex On Social Media Is Normal, But You Seriously Need to Stop” (07/10/2017)

EXCERPT: “Though social media stalking is normal, it doesn’t mean it’s healthy. ‘From a mental health perspective, you shouldn’t keep tabs on your ex via social media because you can’t have a genuine, clean break and really move forward while you’re still staying in your ex’s life, even if it is remotely through social media,’ says  Yvonne Thomas, PhD, a Los Angeles-based psychologist who specializes in self-esteem and relationships. ‘As I tell my clients, social stalking is like taking the scab off of the wound that’s starting to heal from the breakup and then having to start the healing process all over again.’ In other words, it creates a vicious cycle that becomes more and more frustrating and hurtful as time goes on. Ugh.”
