I keep having these short panic attacks over my ex-girlfriend. I am am not even sure if I can classify them as panic attacks since they are so brief in duration. By brief, I mean they only last for 15-25 seconds at most.
She broke up with me 12-14 months ago. I have accidentally seen her twice in person, she has not seen me in return. We have not spoke since the break-up (nothing personal, complicated circumstance - I was insecure). Strangely, however, I have what I can only describe as panic attacks when I come across her social media. We are not connected: not friends on facebook, followers of each on Twitter. So, whenever I encounter her social media it is by accident and I have these 'panic attacks'.
I came here for clarity. I don't want to feel this way anymore. Or better yet, I want to know why I feel like this when I encounter her social media. I don't understand it.
What are your thoughts?
