Tips To Get Over Your Crush
NEW DELHI: Being in love is a beautiful thing, but it can also be heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, and difficult. If you’ve been crushing on someone and have just been rejected, you are likely feeling the sting of being unwanted and feeling like you are less than worthy of love.
You must remember you are going to have a lot of thoughts about yourself following this kind of rejection, but none of them are true.
Having a crush on someone is both exciting and terrifying at the same time. If you've got it bad for someone, first let yourself feel all the feelings. Then, if you don't want them to know you have a crush, try to act normal around them.
Otherwise, turn your flirt on and make the first move. Fingers crossed they're crushing on you, too! But if they aren't, pick yourself up and remember that there are plenty of other crushes in your future.
It’s easy to beat yourself up for thinking you thought this was going to go somewhere, but now is not the time to cut yourself down.
It’s time to let go and build yourself up. To help you get over your crush, we’ve put together a list of things you can do. It won’t happen overnight, but you will feel better and you’ll be able to move.
Stop following their social media accounts (Only If You Want To Get Over Them):
If you have any hope of moving on from your rejection, you need to stop following this person on social media.
Social media makes us all want to go play in traffic even on a good day: everyone’s lives are so freaking perfect, aren’t they? So you can bet that your crush is going to have lots of wonderful things to share that are going to push you over the edge.
If you’ve been rejected in favour of someone else, you can bet that they are going to be on your crush’s social media profile too, so just steer clear. Do yourself this kindness and unfollow them as soon as possible.
They might have said they want to remain friends, but you don’t need that kind of friendship in your life.
Remember why you are an amazing person:
Make a list of all the things you bring to the table and remind yourself that you are your own person who doesn’t need the validation of another human to be able to live a good life.
Act normal around them if you want to keep your crush a secret:
No matter how much you might be freaking out on the inside, keep your actions calm and collected on the outside. That means talking at a normal pace and volume, remembering to breathe, and carrying a normal conversation. Just be yourself! For example, if you're typically pretty reserved or quiet, don't suddenly start chatting nervously nonstop. On the other hand, if you usually talk to your crush a lot, try not to get tongue-tied or silent around them.
Give yourself some distance if you aren't able to hide your feelings:
If you think you'll make it obvious that you have a crush, like by acting embarrassed or tripping over your words, it's best to spend less time around that person. Otherwise, they'll be able to detect your romantic feelings, which could make things awkward for you. For instance, don't go to the party they're hosting or change your normal hallway route so you don't run into them outside homeroom
Distract yourself by spending time doing things you love:
The more time you spend sitting alone at home, the more time you'll obsess over your crush. Instead, find fun ways to fill your time and take your mind off your feelings. For example, make plans with different friends so your weekend is completely booked, or teach yourself a new hobby.
