How to stop caring for someone you love?

When you love someone ( a really close friend with whom you have been trough SO MUCH ) and that friend is just getting more cruel and evil towards you,hurt you all the time and don't care anymore,your feelings are broken and you feel sad and empty,but you still can't stop loving and caring for them,no matter how bad they act towards you - WHAT DO YOU DO? I have no strength anymore. All I know is that I can't let go of someone that is so important to me,I will keep fighting. Just ... for what I even fight? Will it ever get better? :(

    You don’t have to stop loving someone to let them go. Just stay on the sideline to keep yourself safe.

      What do you mean with sideline? Ignoring them?

    Once you get to the point where you dont care, youll know the answer was the right one. They dont deserve the forgiveness, especially if they are expecting to be forgiven. That doesnt mean you cant still talk to them.

    I agree Ella be on the sidelines. That doesn’t mean you ignore them, just not get involved with them as much. Take a time out from them. Try not to get as emotional involved as you where before. In other words take a break from them. I don’t how to say without using some saying, but I hope you get the idea.

    This not unlike breaking up from a partner. Your emotionally conflicted right now. Between your desire to be with the friend and the anger you feel over how they treated you. You need to take some time away from them to process what you feel. You cannot change them so you have to accept that fact also. But you cannot do that until you step back from them.

    Is there anyone else in your life that you are friends with or would like to spend time with them? That would go a long way to helping you with this other friend. It will provide the distraction you need and you might find someone else that is better suited to call a friend
