Usually after any emotional wound that occurs our mind takes a certain time in order to heal the wound and forget about it unless this process is disrupted by incorrect actions.
If while trying to forget about someone new events kept happening that kept reminding you of the person then your recovery process will start from the beginning once again. (see Everything reminds me of him). The reason millions of people don’t recover is that they reset their recovery process whenever they are about to forget about the person and so start all over once again!! Some Practices can hinder recovery In order to forget about someone fast you must prevent yourself from doing the following actions: 1)Daydreaming and thinking about him. Yes we can’t control our thoughts sometimes but we can at least limit them 2)Get rid of the gifts, pictures and memories instead of staring at them everyday 3)Remind yourself everyday that the relationship is over because unless your mind gets rid of hope it won’t be able to heal (see The anatomy of acceptance). 4)Stop going to the same places you used to go to together 5)Understand the true reasons that made you love him and you might find that it was loneliness, love addiction or even the need
