So, you are finally at the place where you realize that the one who you love does not love you. Yet, you cannot stop thinking about them. Perhaps you even run into them when you are out.
The radio keeps playing songs that make you think about them, and movies are even worse. So what are you going to do to get over them? Read on to find out how to stop loving someone who doesn’t love you.
Do Not Keep Replaying Memories
You hold yourself back when you keep thinking of the good times. You need to stop replaying the good memories over and over in your head.
The fact is – they do not love you anymore, if they ever did. Stop thinking about what happened, and stop imagining that you will have good times together in the future. The relationship is over. This must be accepted in order for you to move on.
Get Rid of the Reminders
Anything that you have of theirs will also keep you stuck in the same loop as the memories. Get them to pick up their stuff, and get rid of any pics or photos you have of them.
Do not keep the t-shirt that they gave you and keep wearing it. Burn the reminders if you have to.
There is No “The One”
Get rid of the myth that there is only one perfect person for everyone. There are many fish in the sea, and most people will have multiple relationships before they find the one that sticks.
This is a part of life experience, and there are things that can be learned from each relationship to help make the ultimate relationship better.
Stop Repeating Ideas
Along with the fact that there is not “The One”, there are some other things that you should not continue to repeat in your mind over and over.
These are things like “How can I live without him/her?”, “She/He is the only one that I will ever love”, “Everything reminds me of him/her”.
These are all self defeating thoughts and will only keep you stuck in the same loop and unable to move on. Stop repeating these thoughts and you will begin to know how to stop loving someone who doesn’t love you.
Your Ego was Hurt
Your ego has been hurt by the breakup, and knowing this gives you power to heal the ego and to stop feeling as if the breakup is your fault.
Your ex is the one that did the breaking up, and it hurt your ego. This is not your fault, and it is not even personally about you. It is about their decision.
Use this to move on and begin to live your life again.
Avoid Seeing Your Ex
It is crucial to avoid places where you know that your ex will be, especially at this time. No matter how much you think that you need to see them, this will only serve to keep you thinking about them and playing “What if?” scenarios. Avoid the places where you know they will be, and you will be fine.
