Most Helpful Guy
It just takes time and there is no cut off point, there's no time line where these feelings will diminish. It's all about just taking one day at a time and it does get easier. Eight months is not a very long time at all, the months often feel like weeks especially as we get older, I find it staggering that we're in July already.
You just have to keep focusing on the future. Do you have any goals or objectives you want to achieve? Is there places you want to visit? Activities that you want to try out? Do you want to further your career opportunities? These are all things that you can focus on and work towards and I think it will be good for you to try and take your mind off things in the best way you can.
