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.

What happens when we keep one foot out of our current relationship?

Find out in the video below.

  1. Thank you! This is helpful.

  2. I have had a horrible breakup with my ex girlfriend. She hurt me tremendously and I tried everything to please her and keep our relationship healthy but She was not willing and eventually cheated on me then came crawling back. I was a fool because I took her back only to be hurt even worst by her. She had gotten mad because we were in traffic and left me in a whole other City caosting me to get a rent a car. I came home sad and depressed then she filed a restraining order on me which was vacated by the judge (thank god) I am still thinking of her and worry about her with other guys. I need advice.

  3. hi, im going to make this quick as i spend all day every day thinking about my ex husband, we are still sleeping together which is making my life miserable but i cant stop, my confidence is at an all time low, we have a 6 year old son together and both want to bring him up as a family but he lives with his mum now and my son and i live in the family home, he comes round every day to see my son and for us to be with our son together so he doesnt feel the separation, we also go on holiday together but only for our son, and if i didnt still love him this wouldnt be a problem, i need to move those kind of thoughts from my head and definately need to stop thinking we can get back together because i seperated from him because, he was a cheat and still is he is also an emotional mind game player to, so i need to be able to get rid of him from my head, and my bed i need help, i cant stop seeing him completely as much as this would be the preferable course of action, as we have our little boy, but i have to do something before i go absolutely round the bend and break completely. please please help me regards samantha x
