Day 24 - Love Vs Lust, Head Vs Heart

  • Comments 2

I made the mistake of not reading this dare until I came home late at night. Or maybe it wasn't a mistake at all, I don't know. I had been trying to ease myself into working out again at the gym. It had been something I wanted to do for a long time and something I always enjoyed. Going back has me looking forward to something in my day and relieves so much stress. I hit it up with my coworker like we've been doing the past couple days this week. I spent the day running errands and then the same coworker asks me to join her for a beer at the bar. I agreed and met her out there. She knows of the dares that I've been doing and reminds me everyday. We had just talked about the previous days' dare at the gym that morning and she was bringing up the dare I was supposed to have accomplished already to which I replied that I did not read it. She encouraged me to keep going, not to give up. Even though she doesn't fully understand The Love Dare and everything it entails, it's good to have someone encouraging me to continue to see it through. After our little pow wow at the bar, and on my way home, I get a call from the person I had hooked up with at the very beginning of everything. He had been calling me almost every weekend and yet, my phone is going off. I didn't answer, but I did text him once I got home and we carried a brief conversation. I regretted it instantly. I finally caught up on my dare that I was supposed to have already accomplished and the words burned into me as I sat there reading guiltily. I was keeping that door open this whole time and I was denying it even to myself. I need to end it. I can't continue on with these dares knowing that I'm also keeping him in the backroom. I pray that I can have the strength to end it. 

  • End it.  Now.  Block his number. No need to explain to him.  

    What if your significant other asks if you are talking to him?  

    Can you say you are really sorry for the affair when you still talk to him?  And allow him to still call/text?  Block his number now, with no explaining it to him.  You owe him nothing, not even a goodbye.

  • That relationship HAS to be severed. Marriage is one man and one woman. Don't talk to that person again. For your own good. The grass is never greener on the other side. Pray for strength from God.

    It's great that your friend tells you not to give up. Listen to your friend. Even if she doesn't fully understand. She must see that you are serious and that's why she is encouraging you.

    "For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.

    But woe to him who is alone when he falls,

    For he has no one to help him up."

    Ecclesiastes 4:10
