  1. Jack Ó'lantern says:

    This is actually a pretty good list of distraction. But I will list ones that I find the best!
    Reminders even if they make you angry is a great way to really let it sink in. I’ve done this before even if you can’t find anything to be angry about just pick one small thing.
    Like “look at that Freckle on his nose.. I hate that freckle” as silly as it sounds. It works!

    I agree with this one because most likely you were talking to him or her and have memories wile you have it.

    “85. No, don’t buy a gallon of ice cream and drown in it. You’ll get Diabetes.”
    This one made me laugh! And it’s so true! XD

    78. PLANTS! there like pets but less Interactive and no mess!

    64. Maybe I’m a geek but I do like my hard drive to be nice makes me feel good… now if I could get my room clean..

    Since I live in Colorado this is probably the best place to do that and I love it I haven’t been in a while though.

    Although I never have rearranged my wardrobe or bought new things when I was trying to get over someone it sounds like it would be a really good idea new you new clothes new everything.

    8. Date yourself! yes I do definitely agree with this!

    9. Sleep this is the most important! That’s fine when I do sleep recovery times a lot better although I usually just end up waking up and having extra time to think about the person I’m trying to forget about which does suck but sleep does help the body
