there is rally no east way of letting go. In fact only time will heal that wound. At this point what you must do is just bear with it. If you feel like sulking in bed, then do so. However, just promise yourself that as soon as you can, mnake better use of your time rather than sulking. When that happend to me, i sulked in my room for aorund three days, after which i got up and decided to make better use of my time by helping with house chores.

Thank you. Funny that it has been over a year and I am just starting to feel bad. I am keeping busy but somehow, memories do have a way of creeping in.

Stay busy! If you are sitting there watching movies or slacking your mind is going to start thinking about your ex. Get your friends involved and tell them that you need them to keep you busy. One thing I always dreaded was going to bed and laying there because I knew I'd start thinking about him. It takes time but eventually it gets easier, every day it gets easier.

Thank you. Watching movies do help at least for me. Right now I am trying to avoid romantic themes. Comedy is my best medicine so far.

Just occupy yourself...so that you won't think of your ex too much.

hmmm... I really dont know if their is a best way in moving on and forgetting your ex... but for me I think you could just do something that you really want to do to forget your ex. like for example you like to draw or anything that could take your mind out of your ex.

well for me the only thing for you to forget him is first focus on something else like work,family and friends second enjoy yourself first. lastly date someone else.

There is no right way to answer this. We are all different. We move on differently. Some move on quick while others take months. It all depends on how close you are to that person. I hope you find the strenth to move on.

I think you have to start filling your life with other social activities .You have to start going out again and having fun with your friends.I wouldnt suggest getting into another relationship especially if it is too soon.Engaging in these actvities will help to occupy your time and take your mind off your ex. You may also find interesting hobbies too to occupy your time
