The reappraisal of loving feelings is the second strategy. Statements like, “It’s ok to love someone I’m no longer with,” were presented to the participants. They were instructed to repeatedly and silently read the statement and to try to believe it for the duration it was presented on the screen. This method did not change the loving feelings or feelings of pleasantness. Nevertheless, it still made them pay less attention to their ex-partner, which means it’s better than not doing anything at all.
