Now let yourself get in touch with your feelings.
As you read every word of their stories (the characters involved), ask yourself …
Why? What turn of events took place to cause the therapist and patient to ….
He was overwhelmed with life. Where could he turn?
The man had a nurturing disposition and helpful attitude. He was a family man, assisting his children, son-in-laws, and grandchildren. He was always extremely busy.
His wife depended on him for everything except emotional support. She rarely, if at all, showed any emotion toward him or physically demonstrated any feelings to needing it.
Perhaps, she loved him or was it just tolerance.
“What’s the point?”
The question kept surfacing and surfacing and surfacing to the point that he called a therapist.
The therapist’s physical features reminded him of his wife. However, the likeness ended there.
She talked with him, asked questions, and displayed empathy.
The meeting went quite will. He poured out his heart; yet, he did not mention
…his pornography problem—the haunting sex addiction.
He contemplated on another meeting. He tentatively set a time.
At the close of therapy, they both stood, and he couldn’t break free from her eyes.
She stood there staring at him.
He reasoned: Why am I feeling this way?
“May I hug you goodbye?”
He embraced her and felt her hands slightly grip his back.
Energy spread throughout his body.
At the next appointment, he could only think about being with her.
7 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
The trustworthiness of God is sure. When temptation comes, he will quicken your mind how to escape. Trust your heart and do good for your family, friends, associates, and self.
