Disconneting oneself...
How does one go about disconnecting from another emotionally? I had to break up with my partner of 2 years because he cannot commit to me within the relationship and does not want the pressure and responsibility to do so. We still live together, as flatmates, and work together. I will always love him, I am not trying to kill my love for him, but I need to redefine my emotional attachment to him in order to adjust to the new circumstances, not to be confused and to stop hurting. How would one adjust mindmaps and associations with emotions and attachments to people? Would this be a workable and logical solution for me within my circumstances?

One does so best of all with the help of a counsellor. But I don't see how you'll finish a disconnect while still living together
