Dumbest Divorce Mistakes 101: TMI on the Internet

Getting a divorce can put you in a vulnerable position, and when a person gets vulnerable, they tend to make mistakes that the calm-thinking, level-headed version of themselves would never make. The rise of TMI posting to the Internet is one of the likely outcomes. Today we’re going to look at this phenomenon that so many people in the social media generation haven’t learned from. Here are some things to keep in mind.

1. Don’t allow yourself to post or tweet until you’re emotionally mature enough to do so. 

If you feel like venting or saying something off-color about your ex, then here’s a suggestion. Say it to a friend in private, not on social media where that bad boy can be screen capped and submitted as evidence before you have a chance to come to your senses and delete it. There’s a reason Facebook appears in such a large number of divorce filings. It’s often a rich source of evidence.

2. Don’t treat your social network like a therapy group. 

It’s embarrassing for you and annoying to your friends, colleagues, and family members (assuming those are the people who “follow” you). Try to save comments of the sort for actual therapy with an actual professional, who is paid to listen. Not with people who just wanted to get their daily dose of cat videos.

3. Don’t get sucked in to, or create, drama.

Facebook in particular is an easy place to get sucked in to and/or create drama with your ex as well as people you both know who might be “on your ex’s side.” Believe me, I know from election season that it can be hard to let stupidity go unchecked, but for the good of your case, don’t do it.

4. Assume that everyone is watching what you do and say and that the next wrong thing could screw up your entire life.

Why? Because if even one of the “wrong people” see a TMI post on your Facebook, that’s exactly what will happen. 

What are some of the dumbest things you’ve seen someone post on social media? Sound off in the comments section below.
