Keep yourself busy with other stuff. Love yourself first. Be a little bit selfish. Do the act of kindness for others.

By discovering yourself, when you discover your talents, hidden areas of your personality u have time to focus on you and thats how you realize you are worth more than that person thats makes you stop caring for them and start taking care of yourself

The best way to stop caring about someone who is your world is to change your world. Find things that blow your mind away. For me, that's yoga. For you. it could be anything that keeps you busy until you can find yourself again.

Sometimes we cannot stop caring. But, if you care, you can learn to accept and respect that individual's emotions. It may seem difficult at first, but often we have to let those who we care about go and find their own way.

It is hard to stop caring for someone but it is good to distract yourself with other activities or events. You could also find someone who shares a mutual care for you so you get the same treatment in return

Start to care about yourself and you will see that your value is worth more than that. Easier said than done, but eventually you will have to think about yourself.

Find other people who you care about and care about you. Someday it'll pass but it's still okay to care for someone.

Surround yourself with the people that love and care about you the most. People that bring positivity into your life.

Remind yourself that they are not worth your time. Focus your attention on and spend time with the people who do care about you.

Try to avoid seeing or talking to them if it's possible, block their number/social media and take up new hobbies to distract yourself

The best way is to try to forget about the person completely and yes. Its not easy try to do things that will take your mind off of things like excersizing or finding someone who does.

Understand your self worth and that you deserve someone to care for you in the same way you do for them!

The best way to stop caring about someone is to stop thinking about them and keeping them in your life. This is easier to do if you block them on any social media you can and stop trying to stay in contact with them. If this person is someone that you still have to see daily, the process to stop caring can take a lot longer. Focus your time and energy on a new hobby of some sort, and use that as an outlet. If you devout your time to something new and keep busy, you will not have a lot of extra time to continue to think about the person who you don't want to care about.

Find a person that you know that they care about you , you will forget about that other ignorant person, ignore them, don't talk to them and don't think about them, meet new people too

Once you care about someone so much, it doesn't really ever go away (in my opinion), though it's your choice if you still want to or not. You just have to accept that they have moved on and so you have to move on for theirs and your sake. Everything happens for a reason :)

The best thing to do is lean on your friends cause they truly care for you.

If someone doesn't care about you, you can still care about yourself! Chances are, you have probably been ignoring your own needs while trying to win someone else's attention. So try shifting that attention to yourself. Treat yourself to a meal, buy yourself something nice, talk to someone who does care about you.

The best way is to relize that they don't care about you and that you deserve SO MUCH more and that you deserve to have someone who truly cares about you normally that helps you to not care.

Best way is finding someone else in within your family who needs you. A sister who needs someone to talk to, a brother who needs you more often than you think. We should not invest time and walk around worrisome for someone who doesnt feel the same. SET YOURSELF free from that cage. You are strong, you are awesome and you dont need the crumbs of attention from someone else.

Sometimes you will care about someone, and sometimes a person will cares about you. Not always a person will cares about you as much as you care about him/her. Take care of the people you love, and the ones who loves you.

The best way to do this is to realise from the start there is going to be no instant fix. Chances are you will always care about this person but, in time, the intensity and type of caring may change. Acceptance of a change of situation is the key, although it does take time.

Think of the energy that it takes to care about that person as if it were a physical substance. Remember that you are wasting energy on someone who doesn't deserve it; energy that you could be using for someone else. Why give that energy to someone else that will return it? Why not use it for yourself? Some people aren't worth it, so please don't waste your time or energy on them.

That is a tough one and unfortunately no quick fix. I think the best thing is to cut off all contact completely. It is difficult and the best way is cold turkey but no contact means no hurt and your mind eventually gets used to them not being around.
