I just recently learned I'm an empath and my eyes have opened to a whole new world. I'm needing guidance about a man that I just can't seem to get out of my head. He's my ex boyfriend, and we had that once in a lifetime "chemistry". We had both just gone through divorces and have young children and the timing wasn't great. He thought he wasn't enough to keep my living on the East coast and I needed to be closer to my family in OK. So, we broke up and I moved home with my young son. Within a year I was remarried to a great man. I blocked all of my emotions from our breakup and just moved on. Fast forward 4 years and he contacted me last February. Of course, saying it was the biggest mistake he ever made, etc. To my surprise, I was Immediately drawn back into him. He still resides on the East Coast and I in the midwest. And despite the distance, we picked right back up where we left off. Finishing each others sentences and reading each others minds. My husband was fine with us talking, but I couldn't handle the intensity of the relationship with my ex and husband at the same time. So, we just stopped talking. But, the second I reach out to him, it's right back where we left off. He's show's great concern for me and doesn't want to be the reason my marriage ends. It's been a month since we last spoke, and I think about him constantly. I love my husband and this isn't fair to him in my opinion, but I can't shake my ex. I have never had this happen with any other ex's or relationships. He always tells me our relationship is surreal to him and I agree. Do I keep him in my life or break all ties and emotional bond? I feel him constantly despite the distance. When my mind wanders, it goes right to him and it just makes no sense to me. I don't know if he is feeling the same way, I almost afraid to ask. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!!
