“Every woman has at least one humiliating story of obsession.” ~ Linda Sunshine, She’s Just That Into You – The No Excuse Truth About Women’s Obsessions With Men
Signs Of Obsession
I’ve shared from this book before. It is not worth more than the $1.00 I paid for it, but it definitely gives a very accurate in-your-face look at some of the ridiculous things that women do to cope with lost love. If we are truly honest with ourselves, all of us who have experienced divorce have probably done a few of the things in this book.
For example, here is what it says on the back: “Some early signs you’re obsessed: Are you spending more than 14 hours in bed? Do you go to church or temple only to pray he’ll come back to you? Are you frequently misplacing your keys, your wallet, your children and/or your sense of humor? Are you wearing your pajamas to the supermarket?”
Get A Grip & Upgrade
Inside, there is also a list of Stalking Dos and Don’ts including: “Do follow him in your car; Don’t hit him with your car; Do wait outside his house for him to come home, Don’t break into his house and wait for him in the basement.”
Okay, the book is funny and I’m glad I bought because it reminded me about how ridiculous it is to obsess about someone who has moved on. It reminded me to get a grip and stop those absolutely self-destructive, obsessive behaviors. And as Ms. Sunshine says toward the back of the book, “Getting dumped is always and opportunity for an upgrade. ALWAYS.”
Here’s a suggestion for a really great read: Proverbs. That’s reading that provides real Wisdom. Stop doing those humiliating, embarrassing things that demonstrate that you don’t value yourself and you don’t trust God. Move on, and definitely don’t do anything you might have to go to jail for!
