Get Over it Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to getting rid of burdensome thoughts. It is celebrated on March 9.
The story of Get Over it Day begins with a man named Jeff Goldblatt. One day his girlfriend dumped him, and he could not get rid of the terrible sense of loss that was weighing on his soul. He felt guilt or resentment or something else. It doesn’t matter at all. A solution had to be sought, and Jeff was able to do that. He created a website where he posted a touching poem describing his story and the feelings he was experiencing. After numerous words of encouragement from people and the realization that he was able to free himself from oppressive feelings by transforming them into a poem, he felt better.
The site became very popular, and Jeff decided to develop it. He added a motivational audio recording there, a small online catalog of items that will come in handy on Get Over it Day. Everyone can go in there and then think hard about their problems and realize that things could have been worse. Thanks to Jeff’s action, thousands of people received a living example of a man who did not succumb to his dark emotions and successfully got rid of them.
