6 Tips to Finally Stop Thinking About Your Ex

6 Tips to Finally Stop Thinking About Your Ex

It’s a record stuck on repeat. You see the signs wherever you go: that park you had your first date, your fav yogurt shop…the list goes on. As “what-ifs” flood your mind, you wonder how things may have turned out differently. It takes effort (a lot of it!) to fight through the tough times. Luckily, I’ve compiled a list of tried and true tips to help you stop obsessing over your ex.  

1. Make yourself too busy to have thoughts. 

Idleness breeds anxiety/depression. Period. Keep your mind and body active, and you’ll be way too tired to even think about your ex! Start a side hustle, pick up a new hobby, go to the gym, or get crafty with it! 

2. Out of sight, out of mind. 

It may be cliché, but it’s oh so true. BLOCK THEM. If their name is constantly popping up on your phone, it’s kinda hard to forget about them. While you’re still healing, cut off all contact, and stow away their jackets, pictures, and other cherished mementos. 

3. Allow yourself to feel ya feelings. 

Cry. Journal. Cry again. Sleep. Eat. Talk. Cry. Whatever you need to do…do it. If you bottle up your emotions, you’ll stop yourself from truly healing. I wholeheartedly recommend a good shower sob. You can’t even tell the difference between your tears and the water! 

4. When in doubt, write it out. 

Disclaimer: this does NOT mean writing a text to your ex. You’re broken up…there’s nothing really left to say. HOWEVER, journaling how you feel, or writing a pretend letter to your ex can be really cathartic. It allows you to truly understand and accept your emotions. 

5. Start planning your OWN future!

In a relationship, you often plan the future together. And that’s great and all…until everything falls apart. Then, you’re left questioning what the hell you’re actually supposed to do. Well…get planning! Find new goals, both personal and professional, to pursue as you build a life for yourself. 

6. Talk it out with trusted people.

When you're deep into a relationship (especially a toxic or codependent one), it seems like your life revolves around one person. So when you break up, you’re totally lost. Recenter yourself and find some perspective by leaning on your loved ones. They only want what’s best of you, and their advice may be super enlightening! If anything, it’s nice to have someone listen to you vent and cry. 

Your ex is your ex for a reason. Keep pushing forward, and remind yourself why you broke up! Your ex will always be part of your story. The reminders may never fully disappear. And that’s okay! However, there are actionable steps you can take to lessen the toll, and to rediscover your truest self again.

    Getting back my ex lover was never easy until I read good reviews about Dr Paul love spell portion. My Boyfriend left the house without a note or a word and never returned or replies to my text. I tried all possible means to reach out to him but nothing i was depressed and devastated because I and my lover had just a baby together. It became more horrible when I found out he was seeing another lady in our neighborhood. I tried many two online spell casters they couldn’t help me out until last month my colleague at work told me about Dr Paul love spell and I decided to give it a trial i contacted this love spell caster he told me what to do i did everything and he told me in less than 24 hours my lover will be back to me. Like a dream come true it worked for me and my lover texted me and returned home, no stress No side effects. I will want anyone here having relationship/marriage issues should contact Dr Paul now.

    Have you heard about Cryptocurrency, bitcoin, Ethereum or Dogecoin? It’s the trending form of investment that can change your financial status for the better. This was how I got to meet with the wrong platform for crypto investment and was duped over $100,000 USDT. This was supposed to be an investment plan that will change my life and sustain me for years ahead. I was ripped off and didn’t know where or how to go about it. While surfing through the internet, I came across a pop up talking about Spyware Cyber and how they help victims recover stolen funds. This was quite scary to me but I chose to see how it would turn out. After few days of investigation , I got back my lost funds in full. I am so happy as I have decided to let the world also know about their effective service. Their contact information is as follows: spyware(@)cybergal(.)com

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.
