to get over


"I already got over him/her"
meaning "we broke up, but I'm ok now, I don't think of that person anymore"

In some language "to get over" is just translated as "to forget". Do you have a precise translation in Russian for it, or do you also say "i forgot" that person?

    The focus in the Russian language is not on the person, but on the problem or feeling they caused. We do not see the person as a synonym of a problem. So, you can get over smth, not sb. Like "пережить", "прийти в себя после", "справиться", "оправиться", "разделаться". There is also a very nice saying "с глаз долой, из сердца вон" (literally, "out of sight, out of the heart").
    I can't think of a precise translation. I think we tend say that we don't care anymore. Меня он/она больше не волнует.
