forgetting about someone is not a easy thing to do it is going to take time and patience. you have to remind yourself that youre still the same person after the relationship has ended. when youre with someone you give them the most valuable thing you have which is your time. it might hurt to get over him but dont let a man control your emotions youre a diamond and let him know there is noone else like you!!

Because you still have feelings for him, it takes alot of time to forget someone that gave you so much to remember

Sometimes, when someone makes a huge impact in our minds or heart, it can be difficult to let go of that person, but ultimately we must remember that life does not stop for anyone.

Because no one can’t forget someone who has loved. At first you will feel lost, full of pain, anger and confused. It is the first step of recovery, achieving acceptance from losing someone you have loved. As days pass you pain will lower and you will start to heal. Breakups are not forgetting, are learning and growing with someone who is no longer with you. Is a way of learning to love oneself, since the only person who will be forever with you is ... you.

In life you don't forget someone no matter how much you may want to; you learn how to forgive and let go of the person. Everything takes time, it may not be today, tomorrow or the day after and so forth but there will come a day where you can pass him and not feel anything at all

Maybe you still love him and you simply do things that make yourself remind about him. Try to get a new hobby or read a book. Just do anything that will make you busy and take your mind off him rather than sulking and remembering him.

It just means he has made an impact on your heart. It takes time to forget about someone if they have made an impact on your heart.

I think you can't forget about him because you still have feelings OR you have feelings about this person. You can try talking to him about how you feel. :)

If that person has an impact in your life that person will remain in your memory. But turn it into a memory that you can use to teach you and move you forward for the future. Let go on what you must let go of and move forward.

Sometimes a person can be of a huge impact in our lives, but it's not because they're really important, it's because you made them really important. You should let go of anything that reminds you of him. Surround yourself with new positive energy, that should help. Much love!x

It takes time to go through the healing process after a breakup or anything related to that really. It will take time. Focus on other things.

You probably feel that you can't forget about him because he was a big part of your life and that is completely normal. I remember struggling with past relationships thinking I would never get through it, but some how I found a way to move on in a healthy way. It's not a bad thing to remember the good things about him. Those are fun and healthy memories right? He was a part of your life and that is something that you should think about. Don't dwell so much on the negative. Think about healthy ways to move on. Maybe you have some hobbies that you forgot you liked? Maybe you have some projects that you might have put on the back burner. Think of things that will keep you busy but also happy.
