I am often starting to be a fan of something but If toi are fan of somebody/something there can always be a situation when toi will want to stop it. Lets be honest. It often happens with me and I am sure a lot of people have had situation like that ou something simmilar. But then toi start to feel distracted. toi don't know what to start with. Maybe toi are even afraid of, for exmple, how others would take it. But don't worry. Here are a short guide that will help toi to stop being a fan easy and fast.
Step 1. Understanding.
So toi just understood that toi don't like this thing anymore? Lets think about it. Do toi really want to stop? Won't toi feel bad after it. Actually it is just theorical part of stopping being a fan but it is important. toi don't want to throw all your merchandise out and then cry and shout "I want it all back. I still l’amour it." Think twice before doing suivant steps.
Step 2. Big trashcan.
It is the most important and a quite symbolic step. toi take everything off. All the posters, all little fan things toi have around you. Take everything away. It has symbolic meaning. Getting rid of obsession, of being a fan. Then throw everything out. EVERYTHING. Rip all the printouts, old posters. Get rid of all that. toi are starting a new life. Congratulate yourself.
Step 3. Things that are worth money.
Probably toi have something like CD's, DVD's, books, T-shirts, cups etc. Things that toi have paid a money for and they are still worth it. toi can throw them out of course but better idea is to just sell them. Maybe someone who is a fan of a thing toi are stopping to be a fan of will buy them. Things are used so toi won't probably sell them for the same price toi bought them but anyway... Maybe your cousin likes them? Give them to him. Also toi can donate things if toi want. Poor people will be happy about almost new T-shirts even with toi ex-idol pic on them.
Step 4. Digital cleaning.
Take your phone, tablet, computer and other devices and supprimer everything like musique files, pics. It also may have symbolic meaning and toi will get a lot of free l’espace in your computers memory. Clean all toi social networks profiles. Maybe toi have Facebook banner with your ex-idols pic. Change it! Unfollow it. Unsubscribe channels in youtube. supprimer thematic boards in pinterest. Stop being a fan of clubs in fanpop and other fanclubs.
Step 5. Let the world know it.
Stopped being a fan of Justin Bieber but some months later your godmother gives toi a cup with his pic on it for christmas, thinking that toi still like him? Don't let it happen. Tell everybody that toi are stopping being a fan. Write an arcticle in internet like I did. Tell it to your family and friends. Let them know.
Step 6. Start a new life.
Its the best part. toi can find a new thing to be a fan of. toi can simply enjoy your freedom :) Remember, stopping being a fan is good thing and toi don't have to be ashamed because it oppens toi to new opportunities, new things to like. Just be happy and proud of yourself about liking what toi like and disliking what toi dislike and if somebody says things like "How could toi stop being his fan?I hate toi for it. toi ruined our friendship." Remember that toi can do whatever toi want and its your life no matter what others say.
