    You can't run away from yourself, so you need to get the things out of your head either by journaling, sharing with a friend or meditation and visualization. Also the more focus you give what ever it is you're trying to get away from the more life you give it and it lingers and grows. I am sure you have heard that you attract whatever you are thinking. So focusing on a negative thing will only attract more of the same.

    Wherever you go there you are.
    If you're constantly thinking about something then it's probably best to acknowledge it rather than trying not to think about it. Sometimes one can write down all of their possible options, do some research of others who faced similar obstacles and how they overcame them.
    Remember the old saying; "There's nothing new under the sun"
    In other words odds are (you are not the first person) to be in your situation. Success leaves clues! Find another person who found a way to thrive despite their thoughts and circumstances.
    Most likely there has been something written by them or told by them in some form of media. (biography, YouTube, interviews..)

    The best & quickest way demurebyj, is to "practice" how to stop thinking them in the first place....The way to do that (if your willing), is to learn about mindful distraction of your senses, which will slowly eliminate all negative thoughts that you might be getting at the moment.....The important thing to remember, & it's vital to remember if your gonna start the training.....Is don't ever try to hold on to unwanted memories or sad memories etc, because "after" training they will still all be there, only "your'l" have to access them rather than them popping up, & they won't come with negative emotions....Most people are scared, that their thoughts will vanish if they don't cling on to them....But it doesn't work like that, they will all be there to access when needed.....So after training your'l have full control of your emotions/feelings, & then can access your memories when needed....The truly "great" thing about mindful distraction, is that you can do it all day long no matter what your doing at the time.....The gist is you have to really concentrate on what ever your doing at the time, & while your mindfully looking & doing, it's impossible to think at the same time.....So done over a good few months you will see a truly amazing difference in your mind, & once you get it you won't be able to stop practising....If you do try it don't go mad with it, & slowly introduce it into your every day life, & do what the other guys say acknowledge there's something you need to work on or address, & then write it down & get working on a logical solution....When I'd finished the training, honestly 1000 questions we're answered for me. :-)
