Whether your move to college has initiated a breakup, or you find yourself being ghosted slowly, or if you are just trying to get over someone you see every day, feelings can be so unhelpful and they don’t always have our best interests at heart. They mean we can get stuck in a huge rut where we don’t even want to get ourselves out, we’d rather have some tiny crumbs of love than nothing at all.
I so so recommend taking this Absolute Goddess Handbook course. It is everything as a step by step guide to reclaiming yourself and your life again and how to feel uber powerful for the first time in a long time! I can’t wait to see it change you but for now, here are some really helpful tricks to stop caring about someone who doesn’t care about you – or who does care but is actually somehow being the main obstacle between you right now.
1. Think of your energy as an investment
And think how much you are getting back from that investment. What are you giving out – and what are you getting back? What illusion or trickery is making you give so much of yourself, in order to get so little in return? By doing this you’re starting to consider and learn about how powerful you actually are!
2. Stop pretending
Don’t pretend to move on, or pretend to be hard to get and instead just be. Being authentic is incredibly powerful and moves us forwards. An important step to take is to validate your feelings. They are not shameful and anyone in your situation would have them too. They are a completely natural and valid response to the situation you found yourself in and they are absolutely okay to stay and sit there. Don’t rush your feelings away or do anything unauthentic as it will only lead to more suffering. You don’t have to hide them or spend your energy telling yourself lies about them, let go of trying to hold back and be honest and okay with them.
3. Feeling is part of moving on
Never deny yourself of it, it’s a crucial and ok part. Moving on doesn’t mean you don’t have feelings for them anymore, or that you don’t crave affection from them. It means you have come to the realisation that you deserve more than the affection you are getting and are starting to place your energy in better places. As you are moving on you’ll still be feeling every day but it’s the life and lovely things you build on top of that feeling that counts. Don’t dismiss it or usher it away, the ‘I’m over it’ if it comes will eventually come from sitting with your feelings for that person, being at peace with them and letting them be there, understanding them and knowing it’s okay for you to feel that way. Bad and uncomfortable feelings are as okay as good feelings.
4. Know you didn’t do anything wrong
You did absolutely everything right! It’s easy to fall under the illusion that it must be your fault somehow, or you only did this or that. It’s not your job to do any of those things, just to be unapologetically you and express yourself authentically. You don’t have to think in to it any more than that. You did everything you needed to do.
5. Take time out from them
The ‘I’ll think about them later’ approach! Allotting some time for later to scrutinise your relationship means that you can take the weight off your shoulders and focus on the here and now. This is a wonderful thing to practise. A relationship breakup or romantic disappointment is such a heavy weight on your shoulders, why not put it down a little while.
6. Get curious about yourself
Relinquish your control and what you believe to be true. Let go of trying to force what ‘should be’ and instead watch and learn what makes you tick, what makes you happy, how others treat you and what makes you feel good about those interactions. It may feel awkward and painful to think about interactions with anyone else but that is absolutely okay, you’re learning a lot about yourself, piece by piece, and that you’re in the perfect place at the perfect time.
7. Get curious about others
This is actually the perfect time to start exploring your interactions with others and what they are about as you don’t need anything from them, which gives you the upper hand. Be authentic and true to yourself and your feelings and don’t rush in to a relationship to replace your previous one. It’s all about building your confidence up and letting yourself be in the moment with no expectations.
8. Get clever
This is where the Absolute Goddess Handbook will help you, it is specially created to help you win this situation and hacks to get you feeling incredible and powerful again much sooner. I’m especially thinking of the –a-t -h- -e–s tool which is actually everything! (Can you guess?)
9. Connect with others
This is a really empowering step to take, a place of support and community to share your most uncomfortable feelings with, so they weigh less heavy on your shoulders. This step helps you become be aware that it is a feeling you are grappling with, not the person themselves, although it definitely feels like it. It’s a little insight in to your own mind and what you’re really craving in this situation.
10. Treat yourself
With an extra bit of pampering! Make a treat yourself jar to throw your change in to, or put little bits aside to cheer yourself up, whether it’s a takeaway treat or going for a professional treatment you’ve wanted to have for a while. Treating yourself means a lot, definitely make it a priority on your to do list!

This can constrict us as things you personally wanted to try go out of the window because you find your focus is on capturing their attention, attracting them or tailoring yourself to looking like their ‘perfect’ love interest.

15. Take yourself and your feelings seriously
If it feels like a lot for you, it probably is. Being stuck in this situation can feel incredibly painful but the best thing is to let the feelings in and share them if the weight is too much to carry. Let the feeling be whatever it wants or needs to be. Instead of shutting out the waves of uncomfortable emotion, learn to feel them and tolerate them and surf them.
