I have friends on facebook that flaunt there stuff. One is in Hollywood and famous and I met her at treatment and she always posses like naked or in really small ass bikinis or just bra and panties. I know she has the right to do this. But it just makes me feel fatter and uglier. I don't want to delete her as a friend but I'm just running out of ideas to do. Please help

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hey there,

The truth is facebook is very triggering and for many different reasons. I have numerous friends from treatment on my facebook and some of their posts can be triggering although not for the reasons you stated. It can be hard to see someone flaunt their bodies all over facebook when you struggle with your body so much. It's like a slap in the face, kind of. I know they don't mean it intentionally but it triggers all the same.

If you don't want to unfriend her but can't handle seeing her posts you could always hide her posts from your wall. That way you don't have to see those types of things but can still message her from time to time. However, the down side of doing this means that you won't get to see posts that she makes that are not of her flaunting her body.

If you don't want to hide her posts you might want to utilize the tools that you learned in treatment to deal with triggers. That way whenever you are triggered by something you have seen you can turn to the tools you have learned to try and calm yourself down and get to a better mindset.

If this doesn't work you might have to consider unfriending her because at the end of the day your mental well-being is the most important thing. If you are dealing with a situation that triggers you immensely sometimes removing yourself from the situation is the best thing to do.

I hope that this helped and if you ever want to chat feel free to message me.
