You don’t have to forget it. Allow yourself the time to heal. But focus on healing. You can’t change anything he did.
People who have not been through this type of relationship will not understand it. It is NOT a normal breakup. Know that, be aware of that and work on healing yourself. That does not mean they do not care, it’s just too surreal sometimes to be able for others to empathize I think.
I was fortunate enough to have amazingly supportive reactions from friends and family. That support was so essential to helping me through. If you’re not getting the support you need from your friends and family, try a support group, therapist or reach out on here.
