Let’s face the truth: there is no escape, no short-cut. When Love gets to us, we are trapped… forever. Trapped in a vicious circle of loving blindly, getting hurt, moving on… well you thought you moved on, and then, you fall in love again only to get hurt again. Until you find the One. If you ever do.
Isn’t that sad.
To forget the one you love, to get over your obsession: it’s the hardest thing to do. And no matter what I’ve tried, how hard I tried…
In fact, it’s only a waste of energy to try to deal with feelings. Feelings have no master. They do as they please, come out on their own will, change unexpectedly.
That’s why, instead of struggling to get rid of them, we should instead accept them as they are.
And use them.
What I mean is that we can use these passions for other purposes than mourning love or hating that person or crying or going crazy… For example, I completely pour them on some work. Mainly art, like drawing or writing. I pour all these excessive emotions into art. Then I can have a better control over them and at the same time, they don’t overwhelm or tire me, but help me bring out the best out of my skills.
And in fact, we I do art, I forget everything else.
This can also apply to work or school. Or even friendships or other non-romantic relationships.
It’s the only way I could find to distract myself from love.
Practically, it’s impossible to ignore the feeling, but to use them to our own advantage, yes we can.
