Learning why you can’t let go of your first love ( who is part of your “emotional memories”) will help you find freedom and healing from the past. The first time you fall in love is more precious and enchanting than all your other loves put together! You never forget your first love because it has a special resonance in your actual physical cells and DNA.
The worst part of feeling like nobody loves you is having no one to talk to. Even if you do share how you feel, people just brush your feelings away. “How can you say nobody loves you?” they say. “I love you, your parents love you, your dog loves you. God loves you! So don’t say you’re not loved, because you are.”
Your boyfriend is meeting his ex, and it stings. You know he loves you, but what if he’s still emotionally attached to his ex-girlfriend or ex-wife? What if they fall in love again, or sleep together, or rediscover their old feelings for each other? What if your boyfriend’s meeting with his ex turns into more than an innocent visit?
Love is powerful and strong..but is the power of love strong enough to save your marriage? It depends how you — and your husband — harness that power to renew your love for one another. The power of love is a learned skill, not something that comes from your feelings, hormones or even your yearning for a better marriage. Some psychologists call love an “act of willpower.” Not very romantic, but if you don’t deliberately learn and practice the skills of love, you can’t save your marriage.
It’s normal to wish you were married because our society cherishes and celebrates couples. What do you do when you hear about a 50th or 75th wedding anniversary? Cheer! How do you respond to an engagement or wedding announcement? Celebrate!

Maybe your husband or boyfriend complains that you are suffocating him – or even that you’re overstepping healthy boundaries. Here, you’ll learn how destructive emotional suffocation can be and how to stop crowding your partner.
