This can be a mental illness and we advice you to get over it ASAP! Here are 15 ways to get over it.

Accept the truth

Sometimes it is much easier for you to accept that the person doesn't want anything at all to do with you. Just learn to move on. There are other fish in the sea and they would love to meet you.

Find other things to think about

Let the distractions of life, such as your work and hobbies distract your mind from the bitter rejection. There are so many things in life that you can accomplish instead of wasting time languishing over someone you're never meant to be with.

Sharing your feelings

Sometimes it is just easier for you to share your feelings with someone who knows what you've been through. Ask a friend who has faced rejection or a bitter break up to help you with the recovery process.

Stop dreaming over them

Most people continue to hope in vain that their love interest will change their mind. They cling on to this hope for dear life, refusing to believe that reparations can no longer be made. This hope eats away at their sanity.

Raging over them

Some people are unable to prevent themselves from raging over the fact that their love interest simply isn't interested. They start screaming, jumping all over the place and smashing things into pieces. This rage is only going to make things worse.

Burn their belongings

Sometimes after a bitter break up, you hold on to their possessions in the hopes that they might return back to you under the pretext of taking their stuff back. Either return their stuff or burn it away. Get rid of them entirely.

Find other people

The best way to get over someone is to replace the gaping hole in your heart. If you are unable to fill that void in your heart, you will continue to mourn over the loss of the person who rejected you.

Stop visiting their social media

The worst thing you could do to yourself is to incessantly visit their social media postings on a day to day basis. This will only make you obsess over them further. The key is to assume complete radio silence.

You want to call someone

Sometimes you get the impulse to call him or her over the phone. Despite the fact that they have made their intentions very clear, this is only going to hurt YOU. So call a friend or relative who can talk you out of it.

Spend time outside

It is very important to spend your time outside with nature and make friends. The more you stay indoors the worse it's going to get with time. We encourage our readers to stop isolating themselves in their rooms!

Get a psychiatrist

Sometimes the help of a professional psychiatrist is the need of the hour. They are experts at understanding human behavior and could be useful in overcoming your obsessive behavior. Be sure to share your true feelings with the psychiatrist.

Eat your favorite food

The best way to forget about that person is to enjoy activities which you enjoy the most. For instance, if you love to eat pizzas by yourself, then by all means go ahead. If you love to play video games, then spend 12 hours playing your favorite game!

Don't settle for a rebound

You don't want to settle for a rebound. This person is your attempt at replacing your previous relationship and it will only make them remind you of your past lover. Instead find a real relationship to work on.
