Should I use Social Media During My Divorce?

Should I use Social Media During My Divorce

Should I use social media to get the emotional support I need to get through my divorce.

I’m William Ausman, the founder of 805 Law Group. A big mistake that we see some people make is venting about their spouse or their divorce on social media. At this difficult time, you need empathy and support. However, you want to be smart about meeting those needs. Avoid saying things or publishing things about your spouse that could come back to haunt you. A good rule of thumb is don’t post anything to social media that you wouldn’t want on the front page of the Los Angeles Times, or be read aloud in court. Seek support from family friends, your church, social groups, or a good therapist.

However, avoid overly disclosing too much information on social media, whether it can be gathered and possibly used against you. Pay attention to your needs, and try to meet them. For instance, after her separation, Karen recognized through therapy, she needed companionship badly. She also needed a constructive way to vent her anger. Knowing this, she rescued a Yorkie mix from the woods Humane Society. She then got a membership at Kennedy club fitness and began to play racquetball, which gave her an opportunity to smash a ball around the court and help release anger and negative feelings. It’s important to get your emotional needs met during this difficult time. But it’s best to not use social media for this purpose.
