How Do You Stop Loving Or Caring For Someone?

How Do You Stop Loving Or Caring For Someone?

Focusing on how to stop loving or caring for someone is the wrong approach.

That manner of thinking only makes you feel worse and deepens the feelings that you want to get rid of.

The truth is, we don’t just stop loving or caring for someone instantaneously.

We are not robots.

This isn’t how we are built.

To go about doing this, use a positive approach.

This is someone that you dated in the past or you want to date and never got to.

Focus on what made that person so special to you.

What qualities did you admire in this person?

Appreciate that.

Accept it and let it sink in.

Now, you tell yourself that you would love to meet someone new who has those qualities or qualities that are entirely different but still positive.

You realize that you live in a big world and there are many opportunities to meet someone else by truly applying yourself and executing.

Yes, you acknowledge this possibility but you also divorce yourself from the idea that you want to find someone to help you feel better about yourself.

This is not about getting a rebound.

This only makes things worse.

This is about your intention to expand your world, meeting new people and realizing that there is so much more out there.

Oftentimes, when we really love or care for someone, our world shrinks.

We define the world through a very small prism.

In this small prism, you don’t see what’s out there because all that matters to you is how this person feels and how they make you feel.

You have to break through that and see the world with a much wider lens.

When you see the opportunities out there for you to grow as a person and meet new people, you broaden how you think.

What you discover is, as you take action to make this realized, you stop thinking about this person so much.

As this person recedes further and further in your memory, you love and care for them less.

This is the safest.

When people force themselves to hate that person that they love or care about, it makes them do things that only exacerbate the situation.

You don’t want to be that person.

This is how you go about taking on your emotions about this person in a positive direction.

Though it feels like you just want to get rid of this love you feel for this person rapidly, taking your time in broadening your lifestyle is a much safer approach.
