  • It goes both ways, if you can't have them, they can't have you. You should feel sorry for them because you're awesome.

  • Meh.

    You did aask the same question yesterday. Cutting off your obsessive thoughts is a lot easier said than done. When the obsessive thoughts arise, have a few good distractions lined up so you won't fall into the rabbit hole again.

    Reading books, works of fiction, try blasting some music, calling up a friend (to talk about anything but your obsession), reading an engaging news article or getting back to work or some kind of physical exercise that occupies your brain, too.

    And then again, I voted A.

  • Forget about them.

  • I'm having this predicament. He has a girlfriend. Talking to him hurts. Loving him hurts. Obsessing over him hurts. It's too painful so I chose to cut him out of my life hoping time will heal and I can move on. Otherwise it's just self torment.
