Stop watching the snap stories you know will make you upset, get off of Twitter for the day and don’t scroll through Instagram double tapping everything for once.

Even when we delete, erase, do our best to make it appear that chapter is done, we won’t ever fully scrub ourselves clean. We can always go back. We can find ghosts as easily as scrolling back 57 weeks.
