Remember Past Infatuations
Do you remember the last time you lost your head over a stupid infatuation and had some substantial clean up afterwards? Andrew Davidson, a relationship therapist in the UK, has helped a number of men, women and children break loose from the bonds of infatuation. “As a counselor, it's certainly a very interesting and challenging issue, and not always straightforward,” he told me. “It's also quite sad that once the infatuation is over, the individual then looks back on what they've been like and start to feel the loss, shame and regret of their actions. This is when they can start to look at putting their life back together.” A good exercise to prevent that loss, shame and regret is to recall your infatuation history and learn from its wreckage.
