Video: I Can't Stop Thinking About my ExWe get more than a few letters here at Psych Central regarding people still having feelings for their ex-boyfriend, ex-girlfriend, ex-husband or ex-wife. This seems to be a common obsession that people have — what would my life had been like if I had only stayed with them?

“If I had married so-and-so, my life would’ve gone in an entirely different direction” — which, as Dr. Marie notes, of course it would’ve.

Psych Central’s Ask the Therapists Marie Hartwell-Walker, Ed.D. and Daniel J. Tomasulo, Ph.D., TEP, MFA talk about how to stop thinking about your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend — even years later!
