Getting Over: Difference of Recovering and Moving On

Today, March 9th is the Getting Over It Day.Well, I just saw it online and I am not sure why is it being celebrated today but for those whose getting over something. I guess it is time to end those things today and have a new start tomorrow.

How do we get over? Men and women have their differences when it comes to this aspect. The majority of people says that women get over longer than men because of the attachment that they have with their partner or a certain thing. Yet, I am sure, men who will read this will disagree in some ways. So how do they differ? Do women really get over longer than men does?

In the modern era, we see women having a hard time to get over because of multiple reasons. However, the most common examples are cheating, losing a relative and career related. Most women tend to contemplate because of how hurt they feel about it. Insecurities and self-esteem are usually affected and are usually the reason why getting over for them takes longer. It usually takes months and even years for others to overcome it. Most men, on the other hand, when faced with adversity, just continue with their lives like nothing happened. It is life goes on thinking that they have. Usually, it will only take days, a week, or the longest a month for a man to move on.

The difference is because getting over for women means to recover. Recovering is the process of women to get back what was lost or broken like confidence and self-esteem. Men don’t recover like women do, they just move on. They will set aside what they feel, no matter how grave it is, they will just accept what happened but the hurt will stay hidden. There are times that this goes vice versa depends on the personality and character of an individual. It is just that getting over for women are more noticeable than men.

Yet regardless if you are a man or woman, moving on or recovering, you should always remember that the time is ticking. Every second of our lives count. Either you are getting over because of a heartache or any other reason. We should accept the bad things happening to us as opportunities to be better. So let us celebrate this day by getting over and beginning a new chapter of our lives.

Being said, I am leaving you with this quote by Walt Disney

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
