Advice to ease your mind? Feel your emotions completely. When we experience loss, we need to grieve; there is no way around this, although you can postpone it indefinitely (but in so doing you will postpone your own growth). So grieve as much as you can as soon as you can.
You can devote conscious effort to the grieving process; this can accelerate it greatly. I’ll briefly describe the process; if there’s anyone you feel you can open up to, it really helps to express and have those emotions seen by someone you trust; but it is possible to do it for yourself. Set aside some time to be in a safe, private place and concentrate on all the feelings you have about the relationship. Whatever the feeling – positive or negative – acknowledge and accept the way that it feels. If you are angry and want to vent, vent; if you want to cry, cry – do whatever you must do to express the emotion fully. This will take courage, because you will have to be willing to experience those painful negative emotions.

Then it will be over pretty much. IMO.
