Walking away from the guy you love can be done when you allow yourself to truly let go of him.
The most difficult aspect of this for people is the “letting go” part.
You have absolutely got to be willing to let go and that all begins in your mind.
You will need to train your mind to let go of him.
There is no path to success without this.
If you are not willing to do this, you may encounter a lot of frustration.
One of the best ways to train your mind to let go of him is to think about him less.
This can be difficult given that this is the guy you love.
However, you will need to do this in order to begin that process of walking away.
A first step would be to start putting away anything around that you see everyday that reminds you of him.
It could be an item of clothing, piece of furniture or even something technical.
Obviously, it would have to be something that is feasible.
If red cars always remind you of him, it would be somewhat impossible to put those away.
However, you get the picture.
The point is to make the effort to rid yourself of reminders.
This is important.
The next step is to try to form a new circle of friends.
This doesn’t mean that you entirely get rid of the old.
However, if the both of you had mutual friends, it would be in your best interest to start making new ones and lessen your activities with those mutual friends for now.
This is not necessarily a permanent fixture, it is simply designed to help you at this time.
The more you are around new people, the less your thoughts will be filled with this guy you love because it will be preoccupied with thoughts of the new people that you are getting to know.
The next step is to start opening yourself up to dating other guys.
However, this doesn’t mean that you are proposing something to them that you can’t offer.
Your heart for instance. You can’t offer your heart at this time.
You are simply taking things slow and getting to know new guys.
Don’t rush things.
These interactions don’t have to lead anywhere as far as a relationship is concerned.
They are simply there to reinforce the fact that there are other great guys out there.
All this will help you walk away from the guy you love in a healthy way.
Without anger, frustration or malice.
Avoid walking away with any negative emotions because these tend to stay with you.
Even if you may feel that you have walked away, any negative experience you may have during the day may trigger thoughts of him due to those latent negative emotions.
