I was riding in an fx on my way to work when I heard a certain topic over the radio. It's about letting go. When and how do you let go of a person? And when can you say that you totally move on from your failed relationship? Your thoughts....

hmm...quite deep! I will let go when I will see that he is not happy anymore or we are not happy! even if it's hard but it's useless to force things that is no longer working! Then, I can only say I moved on already when I can talk about him without any tears in my eyes and when I am ready to date with someone else!

perhaps it is best to fill one's heart of new sources of joy. I am not a psychologist but I think they refer to it as something like one's "emotional priorities" i.e. what matters to a person i.e. from most to least important. We seem to consciously and unconsciously "distract ourselves with emotion-causing agents" If I were to get over a deep emotional trauma, I would rid of all opportunity associated with the trauma (people, places, sounds, artifacts etc.) until a future time when I can cope more easily. They say "life is also about objectively managing our emotions - knowing where our innate nature is trying to lead us; being quick to grab new opportunities for positive emotions; being fearful early enough to prevent probable catastrophe" Cheers :)
