If you find yourself constantly thinking about someone, and wish to stop thinking about him/her, read on to find out how to get someone off your mind.
The busier you are, the less time you have to think, especially about something or someone who left you with negative feelings. Keeping yourself busy with anything and everything that needs your attention is the best way to keep negative thoughts from plaguing you repeatedly.
It is very convenient to wallow in the sewer called ‘self pity’; everyone loves the comfort it provides. In the long run, however, this attitude will bring more ruin as it does you no good and only deepens the feeling of hurt. Stop pitying yourself and come out the cycle of self-pity. No one, save you, can turn you into a victim.
Forgive And Forget
Though this may seem easier said than done, it is the surest way to get someone off your mind. When you do not carry the negative feeling and have done away with it, you will find it easier to rid the memory of the person who caused it too. Even if it is completely clichéd a sentence to utter, “To err is human, to forgive divine.” Make sure there are no traces of any memories of the hurt and all negative feelings towards that person have been completely dispelled.
Punch It Out
It is always easier to hurl blows on a punching bag than a human being; the bag will not hit you back like a person would. Invest in a punching bag and hang it in a place in your house, which is usually not visited much, say a huge storeroom or your study! Imagine the punching bag to be the person who hurt you and punch it with all your strength. You will feel great and you would not have hurt anybody at all.
As far as possible, decrease your interaction with the person who hurt you. The more you get to interact with that person, the more will be the hurt and resentment that will plague you. If the person is your colleague, who you cannot avoid for very long, you’ll have to find other ways to get him/her off your mind – the most effective of which is to forgive.
