Healing Affirmations to Stop Thinking About Someone

Letting go is an act of pure self-compassion. It’s about creating space in your heart for new beginnings, for connections that nourish your soul and propel you forward. It’s about learning to love yourself fiercely, completely, so that when love walks back into your life, it finds fertile ground to blossom.

Holding on to someone who no longer fits in your life, or who no longer brings you joy, only prolongs the pain. It’s like clinging to a life raft with a hole in it, desperately trying to stay afloat while the water slowly seeps in.

Letting go isn’t about dismissing the love or pain you experienced. It’s about acknowledging you emotions and memories and allowing yourself to cherish the good ones and let go of the ones that don’t serve you.

It’s about understanding that sometimes love needs to transform, to shift from a romantic embrace to a distant fondness. Understanding that sometimes, life doesn’t go the way we expect, and it’s okay. We live, we move on, we adapt, and we create new beginnings.

It won’t be easy. There will be waves of grief, of anger, and maybe even a flicker of hope that things can be resolved. But with time and self-compassion, we learn to navigate those waves. We rediscover the strength that resides within us, the resilience that allows us to love and be loved again.

The following Affirmations are designed to help you stop thinking about someone and deal with the thoughts and emotions that come up when you ruminate about them.

These affirmations will help you overcome emotional attachment, let go of regret/guilt, and find closure.

Letting Go of Someone You Loved

Letting Go of Someone You Loved

Letting go of someone you once loved and spent a lot of time together isn’t easy and it’s totally natural to think of them often, even multiple times throughout the day, especially in the first few weeks or months of leaving them.

Depending on how emotionally attached you are, it can often take a few months to a year to stop thinking about them frequently. 

The first couple of months, you might think of them all day every day, but as time goes on and life moves on, the thoughts will progressively get less. From multiple times a day to a few times a week, then a few times a month, and then once every now and then.

It’s super important that you find closure. If you haven’t found closure, the thoughts and feelings will linger on for way too long, and you’ll have a hard time moving on in life.

So find a way to find some sort of closure. Here are a few ways to find closure:

  • Have a final and honest conversation with that person to gain closure (only if things weren’t as bad and toxic between you two).
  • Talk to someone close to you and tell them how you feel.
  • Start journaling and pour your heart out on paper daily or at least a few times a week.
  • Create healthy boundaries to avoid unnecessary contact with the ex-partner.
  • Surround yourself with friends and family who help you heal.
  • Talk to a therapist who’ll help you process your thoughts and emotions.
  • Utilizing the lessons and experiences gained from the relationship to create a better life through personal growth.
