I Had A Therapist Help Me Get Over My Ex Girlfriend

During my first year of college, I met a woman named Emma who lit up my life like nothing ever before. We went out a few times and clicked. It was amazing. l was convinced we were soul mates. After a month, I was

completely in love but was afraid to drop those three words to her.

We were officially official but she clearly didn’t feel as strongly as I did about the relationship. While I was sitting in a Psych class, she texted me and ended it. Yeah. She did it by texting me… I did’t really get a good ex

planation for her decision either.

I spent the next few weeks in a depression trying to get over my girlfriend.

I was unable to eat normally and for that matter think normally because all I was thinking ab

out was her.

I tried to distract myself by hanging out with my friends and I managed to go out with other girls, even though I was too down on my self and I had trouble speaking to other women. The whole time my head was still in the clouds. I decided to visit a campus psychologist, figuring that might give me a bit relief.

“Why are you here?” was the first question that said psychologist asked me.

“I’m here to mend a broken heart, my ex girlfriend broke up with me and Im still in love with her. I think the only way I can ever feel normal again is if I get back together with her. But she wont talk to me. So the only way I think I’ll ever feel any better is if I totally forget about her.

Is there anyway you can hypnotize me and just make me forget about her?

Or you can tell if there are any psychological tricks I can use to get her to fall in love with me again? Either one will do.” I answered.

“Excuse me?” She said.

I then realized how fast I was talking… And how much I had laid on her all at once. I guess I really had a lot on my mind at the time. It felt good to start talking about it though.

Unfortunately, the psychologist was not able to help me get back together with Emma. She transferred after a semester to a school out of state.

Honestly, every now and then even though it’s been 11 years but I still see things that remind me of her.
