How to forget someone you love? How to get over a breakup?

It is not easy to fall in love with someone and neither it is easy to fall out of love. But the toughest part is still left untouched, which is forgetting someone you love. “How to forget someone you love”, this is something that I wanted to write for a long time as I had received a lot of queries related to this issue.

For me, there is no magnitude of love. This can be directional, but I totally believe that there is no magnitude of love. It is either yes or no. Either you love someone or you don’t, it is as simple as that.

Directional love implies that love can be negative or positive. And negative love implies love which causes harm to the one you are in love with. And positive is the one antagonist to this negative love.

Everything in this world has to come to an end and relationships are a part of it. There is a time when you quit something and move on to the next big thing waiting for you ahead in life.

Love is something that has no reason to happen, but when it comes to putting an end to it, people look for reasons. Isn’t it unfair?

The decision of breakup

There is not any right time to breakup, when you break up is the right time to do it.

It is your decision to breakup. Sometimes this is mutual, while the other times one partner imposes their decision on you. In my opinion, if this isn’t mutual, this has to happen for sure. I am not sure if the person hurting you deserves you or not, but the person imposing such big decisions on you definitely does not deserve to be with you. So, its better to breakup with such people.

It is not that the decision of breaking up is correct all the time. There are times when you realize breaking up with the person you loved was a mistake, at these times you are free to go back to your loved one and ask them to accept you and obviously they are free to say no either. Now it’s your love, that would bring that person back to you, nothing else really matters. It is completely up to you that you wanna explore more, or you have found the person you should stop at.

I hope you don’t ask me who do you wanna stop at. It is your decision and you should individually deal with it.
