....also, when I would see my ex, I would visualize a steel wall in the front of my forehead. I would visualize this steel wall, and every time he would talk to me I would imagine that his words would just "bounce" off that wall, go "plink!" and shatter onto the ground.
...and I would repeat the following statement before every encounter, "Your words will not penetrate me. Your words will not make it into my brain. I will see right through you".
I don't know...it probably sounds lame...but, it really helped me. I focused on trying not to let thoughts of him inside my brain....otherwise I would go crazy.
