    How do you get someone off your mind, I mean I try not to think about this person but they still come up in my mind.

    If consciously you try then you'll fail. You need to find something else like read a good book or become more task oriented and focus on the things that need to be done now like studying for your next quiz or test.

    If this has something to do with love, then I'm afraid there's nothing you can do about it. You'll unfortunately have to deal with it.

    I have the same problem, a year on I still think about him everyday. I'm hoping time is the answer.

    You didn't say what's behind it.
    If it's guilt , you have to make things right.
    If it's anger, you have to forgive.
    If it's lost love, you just have to go through the pain and wish them well.
    If it's none of above, take in a movie.

    Random acts of kindness are good medicine for a hurting soul.
