When I found out my ex gf got married I felt regret and then got all down on myself for a while. Then when I found out she had her first child I slipped into a deeper melancholic state. Eventually I got tired of thinking about her and moved to a new city where I began a new job and met new people and got involved with music and art. I'll never be able to stop thinking about her but at least now whenever I do... I can smile and appreciate the time we spent together.
