Chances are there is something in your life that is causing you worry, anxiety, stress or ultimate sorrow. There’s also a chance that that something isn’t really worth get all tied up over. Today is Get Over it Day, a day to do exactly that. Whether it’s a shit-ton (totally legitimate unit of measurement) of school or university work, an ex-partner (who’s actually a bit of a bitch that you’re better off without) or a friend or workmate to whom you have very strong inclinations of slow torture towards, today is the day to simply move on. Build a very large bridge and get over it.
The very serious official website even has a poem for this day:
NOBODY is happy, EVERY day of their life,
Not an American Idol®, not a Desperate Housewife®,
Not MVP athletes, not Oscar-winning stars,
Not rich CEOs, not hot chicks at bars.
We ALL have our issues; ALL lives contain stress,
At some point, we’re ALL an emotional mess,
Ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, ex-husbands, ex-wives,
There are people to get over in EVERYONE’S lives.
It’s all part of life; it will help you grow stronger,
But this “pity party” of yours can’t last any longer,
You can sit home alone, being sad and depressed,
Or you can choose to be strong, and do as we suggest:
March 9th is the day, to finally say:
“Move on! It’s done! It’s Get Over It Day!”
If you’re feeling particularly obnoxious, you can also print out someone else a declaration of “Getting Over It” as a not so subtle way of telling them to stop moaning. http://www.humorhotlines.com/images/GetOverItDay_Pledge.gif
It would be incredibly hypocritical for me to write all of this without practising what I preach, so for Get Over it Day I am committing myself to get over what I perceive as a ridiculous workload, because quite frankly my life is not that hard, and it could be a LOT worse.
