How to stop obsessing over someone ?

I obsess over someone’s life when I want it. For example I used to love Kylie Jenner to the point where i always checked her social media and found out a lot about her but eventually it ended and I no longer care about her. Now I found this author named Anna Todd and I want her life. Not in a live in her skin kinda thing but I want to get discovered and become a popular author. My problem is I treat Anna the same way i did Kylie only worse and it’s been going on for two years. How can I stop? I’ve tried deleting her but something always triggers it again and I’m back where I started.

    It's not clear from what you write that this really is obsession. If it's not interfering with your life I'd call it enthusiastic fandom.
