Today Natalie and Rachel answer this question from a listener:
“My biggest challenge currently is trying to stop thinking and obsessing about the marriage and whether there is any hope for us getting back together. Will he change the emotionally abusive behavior? Also, although he’s not good for me, I still feel a very strong attraction and am pining for him. It takes up so much of my thoughts, and my heart feels heavy. Is this trauma bonding? How can I recover from this? I find it especially difficult when well-meaning pastors say things like, ‘God put you together, so don’t let the enemy steal your marriage,’ and ‘It’s always possible to change,’ et cetera. It makes me procrastinate even more. I’m trying to do no contact, and I’m amazed at how tough I’m finding it.”
