Get over your ex.
Like, ACTUALLY get over your ex.
Don't try and pretend it never happened. Don't try and bury it somewhere deep down and lock it away in the back of your head.
Turn around. Face your pain and your past, embrace your choices, for whatever pain or happiness it may have brought you, however small.
The problem with people these days is that they are weak, and when it comes to dealing with their problems, they have complete shit coping skills.
People don't seem to understand that your choices and the scars that they leave are a part of you, and that they are there to help you accept and build towards something better in life.2

Get completely passionate about something else!!! I went through a break up a few weeks ago and I've since figured out goals in my life and have become so obsessed over these goals and plans that I don't even care about my ex anymore. I'm so focused and driven on something new and completely different that he just seems so far gone now. It can be a hobby, skill, sport, interest... there's so many options. Dig deep and find something special and significant to you and work on that. It has helped me so much. I loved my ex and I'll always remember him. There is sad moments of course but most of the day I am so absorbed in my world and interests that I find myself thinking of him less and less.
So basically... fall in love with yourself and your goals. That's the best way to get over a ex!2
