The best thing and most natural thing to do is to block and delete him from everything, but I know how hard that can be! when you go to text him you should think "does he really care what I'm going to text" "will I regret this if he ignores me" and over time you will feel like you don't need to text him or talk to him and while you're texting him you might be missing out on something bigger ☺️
Get your self busy, maybe that is the best way to avoid texting him. Distract yourself with something positive, it will help you a lot.
If you want to stop texting him think of the reason why you shouldn't text him. So if you feel like texting him just think of the reason and you'll be able to stop yourself.
Delete his number from your phone that would help. Always remember what is the reason that you do not want to contact him and put that as your aim.
There are apps for smart phones where you can block their number and stop getting notified when they text you and or call you . Do some research (:
Each time you pick your phone up try to remember the reason you don't want to text him in the first place. Try to prolong that feeling as much as possible. On the contrary however, texting him might bring you closure which means you will no longer need to stop yourself. It will come naturally.
remind yourself why you need to stop texting him in the first place. if you really cant help yourself. delete his contact.
You could always find someone else to text that enjoys hearing from you. That's what I did. I found other similar activities to keep me busy where I found myself totally forgetting about him.
If you want to stop texting him you could delete his contact from your phone so that you don't see it and end up texting him.
If you feel you shouldn't text him or her then there must be a reason. This person is not bringing you any happiness and you can be happier without them
Keep yourself busy. Put the phone down and find something to do that needs your attention to be focused on it instead of texting him.
It depends on the issue you are facing....if you do care for the guy but want him out of your life then try to ignore them the best you can
simply by keeping yourself distracted and busy from thinking about him... do something..sports dancing drawing idk
It is an addiction. It is a habit. Just like any habit, give yourself a new habitBut like any addiction, the feelings only go away temporarily and you need another fix. Deal with the feelings. Don't make anyone else help you manage them. Manage them yourself.
You can try to block his number and if you are tempted then try to distract yourself intentionally and find something else to do.
Think to yourself about what he did to you (if ex-boyfriend) and if he hasn't done anything to you think why you broke up think to yourself "do I really need to text him?" the answer will most likely be no
If you don't know his number by heart, I would delete it. If so, maybe turn your phone off? I've literally have my phone to my mom one time because I couldn't leave this one guy alone. Have someone do the same for you!
The easy to way to forget someone, just live your life and enjoy with your friends because they are only persons, who can make you happy.
Think of how long to have gone without texting him .... don't ruin it now :P try watching some youtube or doing your favourite hobbies :)
Try to distract yourself with another things, go to gym, watch tv, hang out wiyh friends, meet new people, etc.
It's all about self control, learning how to use it. Occupy yourself. It is hard as we do tempt ourselves to text those who we miss or want to speak to, but we have to remember that it's the best of us not to do so. Do something. Turn your phone off. It is hard, and yes we will think about it. But doing something will stop us from doing it. Also, texting someone else and trying to make conversation, whether it's a friend or a family member may help :)
You have to just think that sometimes it hurts more to hold on rather than to let go of what is making you upset
turn off your phone or block him if you feel uncomfortable with having a conversation. or go some where else far away from your texting device
Text somebody else instead. Do things to keep your mind occupied, like drawing or singing or listening to upbeat music.
It's not that hard..u have to control your emotions.remind yourself what he have done to you..why he is not good enough for you..it will hurt for sometime..but with time it just gets better..distract yourself with other things..
Try to distract yourself with other activities. Maybe express your feelings through a creative outlet or talk to other friends.
You can try doing the things that make you happy. My best friend and I, his mother doesn't like me, so when we talk, I will try to keep the conversation going. So don't worry. Give him a little space, then pull on the reins a little. That's all.
Delete his number, delete everything you have of him. Find the things you love too, distract yourself
Delete his number....kep you self busy with something or the other...dont think of him at all...dont go to places which reminds of him
Engage in a different activity that has historically brought you positive emotion. This will distract you from texting him and also elicit positive feelings.
