Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose - not the one you began with perhaps, but one you'll be glad to remember.
- Anne Sullivan
You can’t get over someone by focusing simply on the fact of forgetting them. Believe it or not, it actually makes you think of them even more. It’s like watching a clock, waiting for time to go by. Time seems to move slower, and you can’t stop thinking about it. You'll just tell yourself that gosh, is this really happening like seriously how much longer will it take for this to be over. Then it’s only when you forget to focus on “moving on” that you actually do.
Easy as it may sound right? but the thing is every person is uniquely different, they have different coping mechanisms. So it still depends upon the person how to handle a tough situation like this. Because if you're not ready to move on, you just can't.
the heart breaking, gut wrenching moment when you have to let go of the person you love.
It’s not always a matter of trying HARD to forget everything; it’s just a matter of enjoying your life without him/her. You can always be bitter during Day 1 till Week 4—that’s okay—but no, a month or two should be enough and you can’t forever be like that. Loosen up yourself. Make friends with new peeps just like what i said a while ago. Do the things you love and make yourself busy, or better yet broaden your horizon and do things that you don't normally do. Forget the thought of ‘moving on’ itself and enjoy being ‘free’ instead. Sooner or later you’ll find yourself in genuine happiness, being the guy or girl who doesn’t give a damn f*ck about him/her anymore. Or even when it still hurts and you still care, at least it’ll not be as much as before.
When facing a problem I don’t get over the situation, I get through it. This is why when talking about previous problems I feel the same emotions as if they were new. I accept my problems and learn from them, this way a similar situation does not occur. So leaving things from my past IN my past is the only way I’ll truly “get over” something or someone. Better left in the past.
