Some women cannot seem to get over a certain relationship because they take so much time thinking about what could have been. Certain regrets become the highlight of the day that keeps one in a somber mood.

You need to make an effort to forget about your ex. This means trying to get rid of the things that may remind you of him. Try to avoid hearing updates about your ex to know what he is up to. Try to keep busy doing things that you love. Activity will help you keep your mind off your ex. Do not allow yourself to have time to harbor thoughts about your ex.
Keep in mind his negative traits, habits.
