When you’re in love, it’s one of the best feelings in the world. It would be great if that love lasted forever but that’s doesn’t always happen. Sometimes we stay with people for years, and even throughout our life. Relationships do end, and when they’re over it can be hard to move on. It’s devastating when you’re still invested in the partnership, and the other person has already closed the door in your face. When you care about your ex more than they seem to care about you it hurts. We’re going to address the issues of moving on from a relationship that’s over and find out how to stop caring about someone who doesn’t care about you.
Love is addictive
Love is addictive. Scientifically, some hormones draw us toward each other. You smell someone’s pheromones and become intimate with them, and it’s intoxicating. How do you let go of that addiction? It’s not enough to stop sniffing your partner when your break up. Relationships involve more than just loving a person’s smell, obviously, but there certainly is a biological element to love. We’re attracted to certain partners because of the hormones they emit. Being in love is addictive. It’s a warm fuzzy feeling, and we don’t want to let it go. Even when the relationship is going downhill, it’s difficult to let go of that addictive feeling. And it’s not just the chemicals it feels good to be around someone who appreciates you.
Reciprocity and trust
A healthy happy relationship has reciprocity. Partners need to love and respect each other. In addition to love, there needs to be a foundation of trust. It’s essential for you to understand that when you’re in a relationship with somebody they should put your needs as a priority, and you do the same for them. A healthy relationship is a beautiful feeling. But when it’s terrible, it’s time to let it go. So how do you know when a relationship is supposed to be over?
There is no timeline on relationships
Relationships develop on their timeline. You might be ready to move on from your partner, or they might be prepared to leave you. Perhaps it’s time for you to separate from each other. It’s difficult when two people are not on the same page. When your partner falls out of love with you, it’s painful. It’s difficult to move on because you may want to salvage the relationship. They don’t seem to care about you in the same way that you care about them, and that hurts. How do you move on from the relationship when they don’t want to be with you? The first thing is to remember that you deserve to be happy. This is no longer about you and a partner. You need to start thinking about yourself.
Loving yourself isn’t selfish
Loving yourself is not selfish. Loving oneself is healthy. Remember that self-love is extremely important. One of the things that you work on when you go to therapy is loving yourself. But what that means is accepting who you are. Accept your flaws and your strengths. We have things that we’re good at, and we have things that we need to work on. It’s important to recognize that not everybody is going to love you and that’s okay. Accepting yourself is the most important thing. So when a relationship doesn’t work out because two people aren’t meant to be together, it’s not a big deal. You always have yourself. You have you to fall back on. The deeper you get to know yourself the better. You are all you have in this world. And there will be somebody that you can have a deep connection with in the future. But right now the person you need to love is you
Online counseling is an excellent place to get to know you. You can learn the things you love about yourself and start to let go of the “you” that’s in a relationship. Your online counselor cares about you. They want to support you on your journey to self-love Just because your ex doesn’t care about you in the same way they did before doesn’t affect your inherent value. You’re a beautiful person, and you deserve to be loved. But the first person you need to love is you. Online therapy is a place where you can start to appreciate yourself. Your therapist will guide you toward self-acceptance.
