You need to ask yourself the important questions. Are you happy with this person? Or are you better off? ....some people are poison to other people, but most of us don't realize it until it is too late.
You should block him from your phone and delete his number. I know that it will be hard and it's not your fault that you want to talk to him but this will take time. I believe in you.
Remind yourself that you deserve better than that and keep it as your motive, every time you grab your phone call a friend instead of texting him.
1. Be social i.e spend time with family and friends 2. Delete his contacts and throw out things which reminds you of him eg : his pics,gifts etc 3.keep yourself busy with your hobbies such as reading books,listenin to misic etc ... When you are busy you wont get a chance to text him :)
Think about all the bad things he has done to you and ask yourself if he's worthy to get your text.
Think, what are you going to achieve by doing nothing this? Will it make the situation better or worse?
Once you break up with someone its nature to want to talk still, no matter how much it hurts. However, it is typically best to try and avoid it. Whenever you get the urge to text him, text a friend immediately. I've found that to be the easiest remedy.
I've been in this situation for days and what i did is intead of sending it to him, i send it to myself. Sending a message wont change anything anyway, it will just make you feel worse than ever.
That's actually how I became part of this website. I put my phone down, and look at me now! I'm so glad I did.
Block him out. Delete the past conversations with him. Take a new step forward. Instead of texting him, try texting a best friend.
Try turning your phone off for a while. Maybe do something that will take your mind off of him, watch a movie or read a book even. sometimes being strong is hard but find ways to cope with it and you'll be okay.
You gradually let go. Whatever reason that you have to not text him, you remember; and you allow yourself to let go.
try getting attracted to other boys and try not to think about him..........moreover u can delete the ways you can contact him
Somewhere I read that guys take texts seriously. If you are texting him, means you are trying to communicate with him. however it means that only serious talk is going on and not fun stuff and it's not good for a healthy relationship. It all shows only hurt. Once you shared your feelings I guess the texting must have some relaxing moments.
First off you should delete his number and any way you can contact him on social media. At first it might be hard but you have to be strong and distract your thoughts until you don't feel the urge to text him anymore.
Delete him in your contacts, buy a new sim, don't use your phone, there are a lot of ways to avoid him....SELF CONTROL!
Do something with your friends or alone. Or you could talk to people about stuff that you want to talk about.
Keep yourself distracted! Go for a walk, hang out with your friends, find new hobbies! If you're busy enough you won't find time to text him. Not only that but you're also doing things that you enjoy- adding to your happy bank.
best thing is to keep your mind busy and just focus on something else like a hobby such as the gym, or come on to 7 cups and speak with a listener so it releases some of your anxiety.
Whenever you get the urge to text him, just remember the way he has hurt you. I think this will help to some extent.
There are a couple of ways you could try to avoid it, I know its really hard to try and cut off that contact. Would I be the umpteenth person to suggest even going as far as blocking the number? My other suggestion may or may not work, it will test your will power... Everytime you feel the urge to message him, type it out if you have to, and then simply delete it. A means of externalisation if you will.
Turn your phone off. Leave the room. Try and really focus your mind on something completely different that interests you.
remind yourself how texting hi mmaks you feel somethimes i causes grief and pain or it brings you down
think about why you're asking yourself this in the first place. do you think he deserve your attention?
Well, delete all contact information, block all social media's, and if you see him in public look the other way
Think of the reason you two broke up. Remind yourself that you are strong and independent and that you do not need a guy to make you happy.
It's definitely a challenge that I can sympathize with! See what you can do to distract yourself, do what you love and focus on you!
Do something else. Text a trusted friend about how you feel. I understand this but instead do something else. Like listen to music, draw/doodle, write about it, do a mindfulness activity.
You just need to realize that if he wanted to be with you he would be making an effort and texting you first. You just have to learn to let go even though it might be hard.
To stop contact you have to just set the line of blocking him and not contacting him. Each message you d not send is a step closer to your goal of not texting him.
