Out Of Sight Out Of Mind, Does It Really Help You Get Over Someone

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder Or Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind

Have you ever been in a relationship in which something does not feel right? Does it feel like the content you felt before is not present anymore? Toxicity in our relationships with other people can get complex! If a relationship is emotionally draining you and no longer serves the purpose it used to, it may be time to reconsider some choices. If you feel emotional exhaustion even when saying how you feel, or if you’re afraid of the negative consequences expressing yourself might have, or if there is emotional manipulation, it means some toxicity might exist. But whenyou do take steps to distance yourself from the specific person, what should you believe? Does their absence make your heart grow fonder or does it mean that the person who is out of your sight will be out of your mind too?


This is how things go! When you initially distance yourself, your heart might actually feel fonder! You may start to miss them or appreciate them for the positive aspect of your relationship with them. According to psychology, there are certain stages that a person passes through after separating themselves from a person they love. The first of these is missing the person and wishing they were back in your life. This can be pretty beneficial if the relationship between you and the other person is healthy. However, if the relationship is toxic and you are trying to distance yourself for the good, then this can be challenging.  What you have to do is, wait. Wait for the person to actually get out of your head! We do know that thisis easier said than done but focusing on your personal goals or diverting your attention to activities you like can surely be of help. Take this as a time period you have to wait through no matter what. Pretty soon the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ will start to work. There will also be times when you think you are back to square one. However, remember that this is not actually the case. You cannot be back to the start after working on yourself. Life works in stages. You may be at stage three even if you think you are at one.

Summing it all up, absence will make the heart grow fonder. You might miss them, would want their presence back, and even feel like you love them a bit more than before. So absence will make your heart grow fonder, but remember that it will only be in the short term. In the long run, the person will eventually be out of your mind if they are out of your sight. The more a person is out of your sight (which means that blocking them out of your social media platforms will help as they will not keep re-appearing in your newsfeeds!); the less you will think about them and before you know it, the person will be out of your head. Be sure to keep in mind that this will only happen if you do keep the person out of your sight. If this is not rightfully done, the out of sight, out of mind will not do the trick! Good luck, you!
