Sometimes you just need someone to listen, who gets it, who sees hope, who knows where to start and what steps to take. I can be that someone.

Believe in - Everything happens for a reason. You're worth way more than you can ever imagine. Don't let anything or anyone define you.

Moving on is the hardest part when going through a break up. Try to get your mind off of it by doing something that you enjoy the most, for example, go watch a movie, or listen to your favorite album, or go hiking, etc and try to surround yourself with your family and friends because having a support system is the best for you. Get a closure, try to accept the things that didn't work out for you and evolve from there.

I have found that life is like monkey bars...you must let go in order to move in. Come to terms with whatever is holding you back, live in the present, and learn to forgive.

The old saying of "if you fall off the horse, get up and get back on" couldn't be more true. You have to pick up the pieces (if there are any) and put them back where they belong. Before you know it, you will have made more progress moving on than you thought!

You can't always control what happens but when things do happen, you can only add that to your portfolio of experiences and learn from it. Accept the things that happened and even mourn over them but never cling on; it will eat at you. Find the things and people in life that you're truly passionate about and find ways to make yourself move on for their sake.

Having hope. Even if the hope may be ideal or a dream. Always having a dream and a goal keeps your motivation and dedication alive.

Personally, I think the best way to do this is to let yourself go slowly. Don't rush into things and don't think you need certain things to be done at certain times. Go through steps, plan carefully, and breathe. Surround yourself with loving people.

There are many ways to move on. I have found it best to just keep busy. Have a good cry if you need it then keep busy with your friends or with your job if you have one.

To know that time will heal things is the hardest to accept. But that acceptance is what is most important about moving on. Along with that, one should try to busy themselves around things they like and things that make them happy. Happiness is contagious so being around happy people also helps a great deal!

Acceptance, determination, mindfulness, positive thoughts, and always know the reason why you're doing it.

Think of something positive. Even if the situation is the worst you've ever been in. I know many people will experience something horrible and get angry because they don't why it happened to them. I honestly couldn't tell you that either, but I can tell you one thing, time will help heal it. Whatever it may be that happened to you, eventually everything will be ok. You can always keep the event with you but don't make it an emotional reoccurrence.

To move on, you have to make plans for the near future, and thinking about what you still want to do with your life.

Understand that you are the most important person in your life – no matter who else is around, your priority is making sure that YOU are healthy. Stay strong, and lots of love

Start taking up some new interests and hobbies. Start doing all the things you've been saying you'd do but still haven't done yet.

Moving on is to let go of what you can't change in the past and not let the past determine your future. Take it one step at a time and treat life like it is an adventure.

You can move on in life by finding better things to do. Move on means to get away from the old things and find better things to live for.

Depends on the circumstances or situation you wish to move on from but moving on doesn't mean forgetting or giving up... keep it simple and keep memories or good time lock in the back of your mind and do it for the best you want to be or what you want to achieve in life and reflect apoun the situation or circumstance to help you move on slowly a day at a time make small but not drastic changes even down to a smell or the why you may cook ... everyone finds there own way. For myself it Motivation and desire of helping people and making a difference in this world. knowing that bad situations can get better but sometimes have to get worse before things change. you have to make that small difference to allow the process to begin refusing to move on from something or someone can impact your life very hard not matter how hard it was moving is the best process.

Accept yourself and set achievable goals, one step at a time. Do what makes you happy find a hobby try something new and embrace every good moment life brings you whether it's big or small. Take a chance. Self care is very fundamental emotionally and physically. Be kind to others. Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. Take chances and don't be afraid of change.
