why am i not over my ex in five years
There could be many reasons. Many people have a hard time getting over former relationships because they get stuck in the grieving process or even believe that they should not grieve over a lost relationship. Also, the fact that she rejected you might have triggered those deeper feelings for you and that could make it very hard for you to let go as well.
Is there anything I can do to help myself let go.
You can work on your self esteem issues, make sure you are grieving through the loss and keep trying to work on the fear of rejection. Being able to open yourself up to new relationships can help you move on. And if you feel you cannot move on after a few months, consider therapy. It can help you find out what is keeping you in the past.
