I just unexpectedly broke up with my boyfriend that I lived with on Saturday and my mom just told me to get over it and accept it.
I don't feel like me being very upset still is too crazy.
Am I wrong?
I'm 21 by the way.

I took 3 years to get over it, and at least a year to get past the cry myself to sleep stage. That said, she was my fiancee, and I had a weird story where she went from "I love you so much" to "I don't know who you are anymore" all in one night.
I'd say 3 days might be really unreasonable.
Whatever the time period though, it helps to heal if you kind find something to fall in love with other than your ex, something that excites you instead of moping around in your room, or during idle periods at work, etc. where your mind just wanders off and makes you so depressed.
So mostly you have to fall in love again if you want to recover sooner than I did. It's tempting to seek a better sense of closure, that's the path of misery. Seeking to do something you always to do in life, accepting invitations from friends to do things you might have previously declined, picking up new hobbies, maybe a makeover, something of this sort should really accelerate the healing.
It's not time that heals here. It's when you become so in love or preoccupied with something else that your ex seems to get increasingly distant and remote in your mind.1
