“I’m In Love With My Ex”

A4P Guest: Well, I am not sure where to begin. I am married and have a two year old girl. This is my second marriage. I am 35 years old. Yes, I am a born-again Christian. I got married with my second husband three years ago. And I am constantly thinking about my ex. I know this sounds crazy but I can’t stop thinking about him. I am learning about marriage a lot now and I can see clearly how my previous marriage could have been saved had I have known what I know today. Missy, my husband is a nice man but I am not in love with him. I am in love with my ex-husband. I don’t know what to do about that. My ex is married and there is no way for me to get back to him, I know that very well. And I don’t want to hurt my current husband and I don’t want my ex to divorce his wife either. But I have this constant wish that doesn’t leave my mind. I am crying when I type this but let me tell you my deepest wish: I want my ex-husband to call me and tell me that he still loves me. Missy, we used to love each other. I met him when I was 19, I was madly in love with him, so was he, and – – – I think I need to stop. I think I am depressed. I don’t know what to do or where to go. Can you help me?

Totally Out of Sync

I can’t overemphasize this advice especially to those of you who are young and vibrant:
 
Have a habit of reading spiritual books written by spiritual, educated and sensible authors.
 
Make a habit of sitting with a good book, not with “I will make you feel good” kind of book but “I will challenge you and make your brain hurt so you know God and His word well” kind of book.
