Woman Shares 3 Things to Consider When We're Hung Up on Someone

This should help clear things up!

We've all been there - in a place after a breakup where you just can't seem to get over the other person. You miss them, you want them, you even consider reaching out to try to get them back. If you are currently in that boat, @Courtney Shields shares some advice that you aren't going to want to miss. 

Her caption reads, "By the end of doing this, you will not be into them anymore - cause you will see the situation for what it was not what you wished it was." Her advice is simple, effective, and really will make you think instead of wish for something that can't (or shouldn't) be.

Her 3 things to consider are, why are you still hung up on the person (really dig in and explore the why), make a list of all of their 'shitty' actions so you can see it all in one place, and reframe his actions. What do you think? Is she spot on or did she miss the mark?

@ivy struck a chord with a lot of people - 762 of them - when she said, "I don’t have a piece of paper long enough." @Shannon made us laugh with, "So true! It really boils down to an ego thing on my part… Like- how could they not adore me?!" @Delilah also made us laugh with, "What if I’m the problem?" to which Courtney responded, "Hi it’s me, I’m the problem it’s me."

@Annie Bradley hit the nail on the head with, "Thank you for this! It’s so hard to convince myself, but I know it is the idea of them that I’m hung up on. I don’t actually miss them as a person." So many other commenters agreed with this. Seems like Courtney's advice was spot on.
