So my therapist says I am dealing with a damaged inner child when I have the obsessions. I think like a lovestruck teenager when they hit, and I need to learn to think like an adult when they do strike. SO that makes sense. I certainly FEEL like I’m back in junior high when they hit. So she said we need to work on growing that inner child up into an adult so I won’t be vulnerable to such thinking.
What I’m afraid of is that being scared of interacting with men for fear I’ll get obsessed will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. It’ll be on my mind, making me more likely to get hung up in it. SO that is a worry.
Anyway. FOr now they are gone so I will rejoice and be glad in that.
