Deep down we all are like that child who cries to his mom because she got hurt playing on the swing, we all need to let out our emotions. Having times in your day where you can cry, punch a pillow, or just scream will do wonders to your attitude later on. When we don’t let out or emotions we bottle it in and eventually that will pop out no matter what. Whether it is you cutting someone off or you cursing off a loved one.

It’s important to not fall into a victim mentality. When you’re in pain you want the other person who did this to suffer. You want them to pay but that’s just not the reality, the only thing you can control is how you act about it.

Focus on where you are at right now, not where you were 20 days ago. Focusing on the past too much will lead you to now enjoying the present. If you’re out with your friends then enjoy a night with your friends, don’t focus on what happened a while back.

Forgiving the person who wronged you is the last step. It isn’t weakness but the path towards creating a better future for you.

Moving on is much easier said than done. It can take days, months — years even. It will ultimately happen though if you follow those steps, and in the meantime here is some of the best quotes for when you're over it so you can let go of all of the frustration you must have right now.
