"Robin, you've got to get over this Ted and Victoria thing. You had your chance, and now he's moved on. Can't you just be happy for them?"
I know that all English native speakers say "have got to" when they say something. But actually, I don't get it. What does that mean? Does it have more than one meaning? Thanks.

you have got to do something = it is necessary for you to do it, you must do it, you are obliged to do it.
