It is often hard to delete someone you love from your memory. But today, I’m going to share with you, some of the tips on how to stop thinking about someone you love.
Letting go of people who don’t deserve to be in your life is what everyone ought to practice. At least, you can just make up your mind to forget everything about them.
Here are 5 ways to stop thinking about your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend.
How to stop thinking about Someone
1. Distract Yourself with activities
You can never forget someone if you’re always alone. The feelings you have for them will always return. The old memories you shared together will always flashback in your mind.
So, the first thing to do is to keep yourself busy.
Don’t stay alone in a place. If you do, the feelings will always come back. It may return in the form of thought or memories of how they use to love you, things you did together, etc.
So, if you must forget him/her, then you have to distract yourself with some activities like work, etc.
2. Delete their contact
Delete their contacts. If possible also, block them on social media.
I once had a very good female friend. At a time, I wanted to end the friendship but can’t just stay for a day without thinking about the good time we had together.
At a time, I said to myself ‘ since I no longer want this friendship to continue, the only option I have is to cease contact with her’.
So, I finally ended up deleting her contact and it helped me a lot to get ride of her from my mind. So, all you have to do is to delete their contacts from your phone and block them on social media if it has gotten to that level.
3. Distance Yourself
When I say ‘distance yourself, I don’t mean you should travel’. What I mean is to withdraw your presence.
Maybe this person you’re trying to stop thinking about did not offend you even for a day.
Just that you want to miss them. Maybe you always chat online, have phone conversations, etc. And after receiving sweet text messages from him/her, you end up thinking about them at all times.
All you have to do is to distance yourself. If what makes you think about them always is online chat, then its time to stop going online for some time.
You can even delete your Facebook App, WhatsApp, etc for the main time and re-install it later.
4. Write down everything you hate about them:
You can only forget someone if you think he/she is not the right person for you.
So, how do you do that? Start by writing down everything you hate about him/her.
Forget about their good side. Focus on their bad side you know you can never tolerate.
It will make you come to the conclusion that he/she is not the right person for you. Therefore you have to stop thinking about them and move on with your life.
5. Make new Friends
Make new friends or start a new Relationship. It will help you to forget the old memories you shared together.
Also, don’t forget to get ride of their belongings.
Maybe they are some gifts he/she bought for you that are left behind. You can just decide to give it to someone you know you hardly see.
It will help you to stop thinking about him/her. But if you live those gifts behind, you will always remember him/her anytime you set your eyes on them (the gifts).
According to Research ” In order for your brain to think, you need nerve cells that can detect information about the outside world and can transmit that information to other nerve cells”
In other words, still having some gifts your ex or your partner bought for you can serve as something that will make you remember them.
So, simply do away with those gifts and make new friends or start a new Relationship.
