How Can I Get Over Someone I Love and Move on?

If you are having trouble getting over someone you love after going through a breakup, you are not going to find any easy answers. You are probably having a painful time letting go of your ex and that is making you ask how I can get over someone I love. If you have a lot of emotion invested in your ex it can be a difficult experience to let go.

You may think you are over someone and a couple years later you are reminded of them by something you see or hear, and back comes the sadness you once had. This may happen occasionally for the rest of your life but this does not mean it has to control your life. You have to be able to move on with your life.

Usually the period of time right after the breakup is the worst, during this time you will have the most emotional stress. You must face up to the pain and keep on going; I know it is not easy. If necessary, you can remove items from your view that reminds you of your ex. Put away pictures and objects so you are not continually reminded of your ex. After you feel you are doing OK you might try to bring them out again.

If you are having a really difficult time getting past this on your own. You might consider counseling. Your friends and family may give you advice, but they may have their own motives for telling how to deal with it. A counselor would be unbiased and give you good advice.
