Love is a wonderful feeling, if only it is reciprocal. Love one-sided with time begins to exhaust and complicate life. And then there is an occasion to think: how to stop loving and get rid of addiction caused by non-reciprocal love?
Situations in which a person may want tostop loving, are different. Perhaps it was originally unrequited love, and when you realized that you are not destined to be with your loved one, you decided to wrest this feeling from the root of your heart. Perhaps you have parted ways with your soul mate, but the feelings still remain and prevent you from moving on and building a new life. How to stop loving a person who does not go out of your mind?
In order to stop loving, someconcentrate on the negative qualities of a person, remembering all the bad things that were associated with him. They hope that negative feelings will supersede positive ones. Perhaps this will work, but why increase the negative in your life? Bad in our lives and so enough. Then you will perceive this relationship (or the period of love) as a lost time in your life. Love will go away, but a bitter sludge of regret remains. Leave yourself only positive memories and emotions - to stop loving a person can and in other ways.
Some, however, admit the opposite error,seeking at all costs to maintain friendly relations with the object of his love. Nobody says that this is impossible. You just need to build friendship only when you have won love. To stop loving, try for some time not to intersect with a personIf you work or study with him,communication to especially working subjects. This is difficult: you will want to meet, call, chat in ICQ or social network. Suppress these impulses: every time you meet or try to communicate, your feelings will flare up again.
In fact, the very wording - how to stop loving - is not too fortunate. It's not about feelings for the person as such (they say that true love is disinterested). The fact is that you do not think your life without this person. There is also a little sense of ownership, anduncertainty in themselves (often after the gap there is a doubt that you in itself have something to represent). This can be exacerbated if you have common friends: subconsciously you are afraid that friends will cease to be common, and you will lose them. So even sometimes it happens.
Unilateral love is akin to addiction, some find it peculiarpainful pleasure and cling to this feeling, while convincing themselves that they want to stop loving. But this is self-deception: they get used to the position of the martyr, get used to feel sorry for themselves and seek sympathy from others. They revel in their pain, losing the remnants of self-esteem.
Therefore, it is important not to stop loving another person, but start loving yourself. You have to prove to yourself that you can be happy without it. You are a full-fledged person, you have your owndignity, their talents and hobbies, their friends, their lives. Although they like to say that lovers are two halves of one whole, it does not mean that without a loved one you are inferior.
Try to live life to the fullest, so that you do not have time to think about your unrequited love. Find yourself an exciting hobby, more oftenmeet with friends or make new acquaintances. In general, now you need new impressions. Only now for a new novel is not the best time: even if it seems to you that you are ready for a new relationship, it is unlikely that this is so. You risk insulting a person who sincerely falls in love with you.
But still the best way to stop loving a person is to be patient. Time heals any mental wounds. The first time will not be easy, but you need to understand andaccept the fact that your relationship is over (or that they will never be). Life does not stop there: you need to move on, not focusing on the feelings that make you stand still.
