Go Super to Listen Go Super!

You don’t often choose the way you feel about something. You just feel it. Feelings are hard to control. Sometimes, feelings like anger and disappointment can be a problem long after the thing that angered or disappointed you is over. When that happens, it’s time to move on.

When you move on, you make a conscious decision to stop caring about something. You decide to stop letting something from the past affect the way you feel. People often have to find a way to move on after terrible things happen like an accident or the death of a loved one.

But you can have a hard time moving on after a small problem too, as Jeff discovers today. He thought that a disagreement he had with his girlfriend Ella was over. She, however, may not have moved on yet.

3. Watch - Watch the video without reading the dialog.

Jeff:  That’s what I was saying. I can’t believe she did that.

Ella:  It’s so weird. Ha ha.

Jeff:  Hey, look at that! Right out front.

Ella:  I know. Isn’t it awesome? I just…

Jeff:  Yeah, good deal.

Ella:  I didn’t want to make a big deal, because, you know, I didn’t want you to call me a showoff again.

Jeff:  What? You’re still mad about that?

Ella:  Oh, come on. It was two weeks ago, and I was just trying to share my achievements with everyone, and you kept calling me a showoff. Like, that was totally uncalled for.

Jeff:  You’re still on that? You’re still mad? Why don’t you just move on? It was two weeks ago.

Ella:  Move on?

Jeff:  Move on!

Ella:  What do you expect me to just…You want me to just walk away? Like, what do you mean, “move on”?

Jeff:  Just forget about it and get on with your life.

Ella:  It was insulting. How could I forget about that?

Jeff:  It’s in the past.

Ella:  How am I supposed to move on?

Jeff:  I can’t believe this. Again? Just move on.

Ella:  I’ll show you moving on.

Jeff:  What? Ha ha. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Hey! You’re taking me literally? No…come on. Come on, babe.

Ella and Jeff are leaving a building and getting in Ella’s car. She is parked right outside the door and Jeff is impressed that she got such a good parking spot. She says she didn’t tell him because she didn’t want him to call her a showoff again, like he did a couple of weeks ago when she was talking about awards she has won.

Jeff is surprised that Ella is still upset about being called a showoff. He expected her to have moved on by now. But she says she doesn’t know how to move on from it. She is mad at him and doesn’t think it was right for him to call her a showoff.

Finally, Ella gets in her car and drives off. She literally moved on. She went somewhere else. But can she move on from her disagreement with Jeff?

Can you think of a time you had to move on?

I think everybody in a point of his or her life needs to take steps to move on.We all as human beings are always facing problems and difficulties which some times bring us hard times as well. Without learning how to move on in these circumstances we will not be able to live in peace. Forgetting and forgiving are mail tools to overcome our stressful life and escape ourselves from all unimportant thoughts which keeps our minds busy.
