When I hear someone say "get over it" to me it is saying they are NEVER allowed to have a weak moment because of something that happend in the past. That they can not let it affect them in ANY way.

 Stop letting it define your life. That is what it means to me.

To me it means move past it the best way that you can don't bring it up 24/7 and don't use it as a reason to hurt yourself or others

Get over it means move on. Stop dwelling on it, and letting it effect your daily life.

I don't believe anyone is made with a heart of steal. People may say they never have a weak moment. But I don't believe them.

Have your weak moment in private when you need it. I think it's healthy to do so. But then chear up. Move on, and don't allow it to change your life in a negative way.

Usually the only people who say that to someone have never been in the situation. Yesterday someone told sexual abuse victims to get over it and don't live in the past. Obviously they never were in that situation.

I think telling people they can NEVER have a weak moment because of something bad happening in their lives is stupid personaly. That is what I think most people say when they say to get over it too. Someone the DAY of the funeral told my mom to get over her daughter dying and then proceded to ask for the babies clothing.
