14 Instagram Captions To Make Your Ex Jealous, Just Because It Feels Good

By

There are plenty of articles, books, and quotes about guiding you through getting over a breakup. But what about stuff to help us express our happiness about being over and done with someone undeserving of us? Breakups don't always mean you're in a sad oblivion. Some of us are ready to let every picture reveal our content-as-hell attitude now that we are no longer with our ex. Forget about playing it cool. Post those Instagram captions to make your ex jealous, and keep it pushing because you really are onto much better things.

Call it petty if you want to, but you are only placing the jealousy bait out there. If your ex grabs, that's definitely not your problem. Who wants to be down in the dumps about a breakup anyway? Showing that you are over and done with that portion of your life is empowering, and that's what growth is all about. Social media is an outlet to express ourselves, so take advantage of it and show your ex what they're missing. There's no perfect Instagram caption formula to immediately ignite jealousy from your ex, but some of these may do the trick.
