when you want to give advice on something , can I say as follows?

I know how much you are disappointed in her behaviour. you might feel evey betrayed. I recommend that you erase the accident from your memory.

( THe situation is that your best friend caused a big traffic accient and you were seriously injured, but she never came to see you and you are really angry)

    "You should forget it" sounds like the simplest way to say "I recommend that you erase the accident from your memory" but it doesn't sound like great advice to give!

    "You should move on" doesn't mean "you should forget it" but it means to get on with your life without having what happened bog you down.

    It's fine for mine, although the first sentence would sound better to me as: I know how disappointed you are in/by her behaviour.
