My ex and I were together for almost 6 years. We lived together and all. Within the last year, she moved to an other province, about 2 hours away. I would travel there every weekend to see her. Within the last year, she broke up with me 3 times. All 3 times were the same excuse. She explained to me that she didn't feel right in her life and she needed to be alone. Then 3 months later she'd tell me that I was the one and that she would never leave me. I got burned 3 times with this same shit. Anyways, this time it's different, she truly does not love me anymore and it has been over a month she left. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. I am having a difficult time getting over this. I understand I shouldn't think of someone who does not care for me. I understand I need to stay busy. I understand all that needs to be done. I have fully accepted that this is over, but yet I am constantly thinking about her. I would like to move and and be my own person. I would like some insight. I am a caring and down to earth person. How do I get over her?

From experience, getting over long term relationships where you share your life with someone is very hard. What's worked for me in the past is using a creative outlet to burn through my feelings (positive and negative) about the ex. That way I have been able to reach a neutral place with no overly affectionate or overly disgusted feelings for the person whatsoever. Personally, I started taking boxing classes and started painting and selling some of my pieces. It made me feel really great about myself, and it helped better than anything I'd tried before.0

Give it time. These things can take a while to settle down. In the meantime keep yourself busy. Travel a bit if you can, join a sports club or something similar, anything that occupies your mind and time.
6 years is a long investment emotionally in someone. It's not going to go away easily.1
