Getting over him may be a very difficult task to accomplish. Not only will you miss his warmth when he hugs you, and his strength when he holds you, but you may also miss things like the way he used to look at you, and all of the fun times that you experienced with him. These memories might stay with you for a long time, but if you really want to get over him you have to be as proactive in it as possible. In order to start the process of getting over him you must first change your thinking. Do things to keep your mind occupied in order to not think about your recent break up. Partaking in activities that you enjoy, spending time with your friends, and even trying to seek new hobbies out will help you keep your mind off him. Also, spend this time alone to work on yourself, and to develop yourself into an even greater person than you already are.
