I Can't Get Over My Ex!
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
I met my high school sweetheart my senior year. I was going away to college and was under the impression he was going w/me, but when it came down to it, he did not go. He decided he was not ready for our relationship and broke it off w/me. I was very depressed for months, even years after we broke up b/c he led me on many times to believe he may still have feelings for me. Now, it is 7 years later and I still find myself looking for him in the store, on the road, thinking maybe he'll call. it never stops! I am currently married to a great husband who despises my ex, b/c I think he knows deep down I still have some unfinished feelings for my ex. When my current husband, then boyfriend, and I were 6 months into dating, my ex called me out of the blue one night and we went out three days in a row, rekindling some feelings. When it was all said and done, I ended up telling my now husband what happened. It took a long time but he forgave me. I just found out my ex boyfriend is engaged and I am a big ball of emotion. I just want to kick, scream and cry and say "No, you should have married me." I know this is so wrong to think. I feel like I am emotionally cheating on my husband. I do not want to think about my ex anymore. I have tried and tried to get over it but the feelings come back. How do I rid myself of these feelings once and for all?
It will do you good to talk the feelings out of your system.
Tell your husband what you are experiencing and tell him you need to go to a counselor to get assistance. This has been going on too long.
Good luck! George
