About the sentence

to get over somebody/something

to get over something = to recover from something (e.g. a disappointment, a shock, an illness, a relationship etc).


We use the structure "It has been [time period]" to describe the length of time that has passed since something happened, e.g. It has been 10 years since we last saw each other.

The word ex in English means your ex-partner (someone who is not your partner any more) e.g. your ex-wife, ex-husband, ex-girlfriend etc.

Once when I was taking my driver’s license, I got so sad that I was making everything wrong that I started to cry in the middle of my driving class. I had to pull over the car to get over from that awkward situation. It took me a few minutes, but until today, driving is not my thing. I’m not the best person to advice someone who had a break-up, but I would tell the person that if things are not going well, ending a relationship might be the best for both, and he/she should enjoy the time being single

In 2015, I took the admission exam of a prestigious university. Unfortunattely, I didn’t pass the exam. I got frustrated and it takes me about 4 months to realise that It didn’t mean that I’m failing in life, there are other ways to stand out in life.
