National "GET OVER IT DAY!" (March 9th)
March 9th is GET OVER IT DAY!®
Strategically the midpoint between Valentine's Day & April Fools Day, it was conceived in 2005 by a guy in Atlanta while struggling to get over an ex-girlfriend. He recognized it was a universal concept that many can relate to (despite how taboo & uncomfortable it is to acknowledge & discuss).
So he wrote up "GetOverItDay.com's Purpose & Perspective Poem" (below), the concept quickly went viral, was featured by Good Morning America, ESPN SportsCenter, 1000+ media outlets worldwide, and...
*2023 Update: "GetOverItDay.com's Purpose & Perspective Poem" has now reached 43+ MILLION People!
Regardless of what your "it" may be, you obviously don't NEED a specific day (or this poorly-designed website!) to "GET OVER IT!"
We can be thankful when it's not Thanksgiving. We can be romantic when it's not Valentine's Day. [And we should appreciate Mothers and Fathers more than 2 days a year!] But, for some reason, it's often just easier (to remember? to prioritize? to commit and actually DO something?) with the help of a specific day, particularly if friends, news outlets, or social media are discussing it!So, on March 9th (or ANY day it might help!), below are some GetOverItDay.com suggestions, resources, etc., which we hope can be helpful*
*[...either to actually help you "get over it" or even just to help keep things in perspective and remind you that MANY people have been where you are - even though you might not know it from all the "living my best life" pics and #BLESSED posts you see on social media]

4. Just "Get Over It" PRIVATELY!!
Not into all the PUBLIC sharing? Feel free to ignore all this symbolic stuff and just commit to the decision YOURSELF, inside your own head, and then GET OVER IT - on your own!!
5. SHRED That Sh*t!You can obviously do something like this on your own to symbolically rid yourself of something that represents whatever you're getting over - though we are legally NOT ALLOWED TO RECOMMEND BURNING ANYTHING (after a certain Get Over It Day fire-related incident on March 9th of 2012 in Huntington, New York), but...
If you email info@GetOverItDay.com to tell US what you're getting over, we will print your email and SHRED IT!
Not metaphorical shredding - we literally bought a paper-shredder specifically for this purpose! :)
Feel free to share wherever - and with whomever! #GetOverItDay
