10 Ways To Get Over A Crush. Almost everyone at some point in their lives crush on someone. You can’t sleep at night and all you think of is a future with that person. It can be heartbreaking when you realize it won’t work out. Your crush might be seeing someone else, or not having the same feelings as you. You have to let go an move on. Here is how;
1. Talk It Out
It’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you’re in the middle of a crush, but plenty of other people have been down this path before you. Finding out how they got through it can kick-start your own inspiration to move on.
2. Tell Your Crush
If you’re certain they’re mature and capable of understanding what you’re going through, find a time when you can talk to them about it. One of the most difficult parts of getting over a crush is letting go of your hopes for romance. Telling the person gives the small chance that maybe they really do like you back, but even in the eventuality that they don’t, you finally can just move on to accepting that.
3. Try Not to Obsess
While talking it out is good, don’t let the pain be only thing you talk about. Avoid sharing the same sad feelings again and again, to the point that you’re stuck feeling sad all the time as you relive the rejection. When that happens, it can sometimes be good to ask a friend or parent to help distract you.
4. Don’t Haunt Their Social Media Accounts
Getting over someone is infinitely harder if you’re looking at their social media accounts all the time! The best advice might be to unfollow the person. Stop following their Twitter, stop following their Instagram, stop following their Facebook. Clearing your screen of your crush’s presence can do wonders. You can also use those privacy settings on Facebook that allow you to block someone’s updates from your feed!
5. Distance Yourself From Them
If you can, try to give yourself some breathing room away from the object of your affection. A lot of crushes are born of proximity, or simply being around someone who happens to be remotely likable. If you’re not around this person as often, the crush might peter out on its own.
6. Meet Some New People
If your crush is always hanging out in your current group of friends, try broadening your social horizons. Making new friends will distract you from your current misery, boost your confidence, and might even lead you to someone who’s a better match for you.
7. Understand It’s Only Temporary
No matter how much your heart is hurting, know that the feelings won’t last forever. You will move on. Feelings are actually temporary. There will always be times when you want something intensely and it just doesn’t work out. It’s normal to take a while to rebound from that. But learning that feelings can and do pass, even when it seems like you’ll feel sad forever is something you can remember the next time you feel down
8. Acknowledge Defeat
9. Take Care Of Yourself
10. Know Your Worth
When we’re getting over a crush, one thing our friends always remind us is, “It’s THEIR loss.” Which is true! This person is not the only person in the world. YOU, however, are the only you. Do something that will remind you of this and whatever you excel at that makes you feel amazing and empowered when you do it. If your next crush is truly worthy of you, they’ll be attracted to all of your talents and encourage you to be the best you can be.
