It’s time for our weekly discussion. Here goes…
We’ve discussed negative thoughts before, but today we wanted to delve into the world of obsessive thoughts.
The mind is a powerful thing. Unfortunately, after the affair the mind can manipulate your thinking to the point that you can obsess about your spouse’s affair and/or the affair partner. These thoughts and images can be both destructive and controlling. But they are there. And we all need to learn how to deal with them.
With this in mind…
What’s playing in your mind today?
How would you describe the thoughts and images that have come to you after the affair?
What affect have these obsessive thoughts and images had on your quality of life and ability to move forward?
Have they lessened with time, or strengthened?
Do you feel powerless to control these thoughts?
Has anything helped in your efforts to lessen these thoughts and their control over you?
Please respond to each other in the comments.
