Hi.

I watched The Conjuring too when it came out. The best way to forget something is to just let it go and focus on other things in your life. If you keep reminding yourself to forget it, then all you do is think about it because you're making yourself remember the thing that you were supposed to forget, if that makes sense?

Like you said, ghosts aren't real. And I can assure you that the only reason why horror movies are made is mainly for money, and the fact that directors/makers often want their audience to experience different kinds of things so it becomes an 'experience' itself. However these so called experiences and the feelings you felt when you watched it are temporary.

Say for example you watched someone die in a film, yes you are sad when it happened, but when the film ends, we just forget and carry on with our lives. Even though we can be reminded of that particular moment, it's sort of like a dull throb/feeling at the back of your mind when you make yourself remember.

So yeah, just carry on with life as normal and don't think of it as something you need to forget. Just focus on other things and if you are reminded of it, just think how it was a stupid film anyway.

Seriously.

It really was a stupid film. I can't believe I paid well-earned money to watch it. All it gave me was a headache because they put the volume on so loud. So when the loud noises came on to try and "scare" us, it made me jump because it was so loud that it hurt my ears, NOT for the fact that it was "scary."

It's a stupid film.

I find that sometimes you need to allow yourself to think about something even if it scares you. Maybe you can move past it by realising and fully accepting that it may have a negative effect on you but it cannot harm you in any way. Your thoughts only have as much power as you give them.

I'm sorry if this isn't helpful advice! The most important thing to remember is that it was a dumb film anyway and since you're definitely not a horror fan, maybe you'd enjoy the 'Scary Movie' film series that show how ridiculous horrors can be!

Ghosts are definitely real,
my dog barks whenever one walks in,
but don't worry, most are harmless and don't even know they're dead!
