Just finished deleting all my past from Facebook. Well, technically, not all of it; only erased every photo in which I appeared with somebody from back then that I’d been involved with. I had already started a few months ago, when I first started dating my ex again. I unfriended all the persons I have been -or were planning to be- sexually and/or emotionally involved with. Didn’t need nor want anyone to interfere with my present.
I can’t but feel relieved of taking this final step. I am certain of this: you cannot unlive your life, your past; but you can either choose to keep reminders of it, remains that may hurt you or your partner, or to erase every trace of them for good. I chose the latter, and I am happy for that.
