Anonymous asked: It's been 7 months since I broke up with my ex. After a few months of trying to make it work as friends, since he was my boyfriend and best friend for two years, we stopped talking after an argument. I have moved on to bigger and better things, even moving onto a happy relationship. Some days I can't stop thinking about my ex. And it really gets me down. I'm not entirely sure why, he wasn't even that great. What can I do to let go completely?
I don’t think we ever let go of the ones we love completely. They become part of us, and the memories we share never disappear. That being said, don’t focus on the sad things, focus on the happy things! As Dr. Seuss says, “Don’t cry because it’s over, Smile because it happened”. Don’t be sad that you are no longer with this person, be happy about the times you shared and look back fondly. Don’t feel guilty that you think about him sometimes, just focus on the happy memories and the happy parts of your life now. Good luck to you, we’ve all been there :)
Anonymous asked: Is it bad to convert to another religion (Catholic to Lutheranism) because you love that person so much that you don't want to fight because of religious differences? Marriage is right around the corner and I don't want to fight over our future children's beliefs.
I won’t give you advice on switching religions, because that is a personal decision. However, I will support you in whatever you choose! Do not let anyone tell you what you can and can’t believe. Many spouses convert religions to that of their partner, but at the same time many spouses have different religions. Don’t worry about your future kids, whatever you decide to do, I’m sure they will turn out just fine. The fact that you are worrying about it shows how much you care. I would think carefully about your beliefs, and if they match your husbands, but if not, don’t let fear force you to change your beliefs. I hope this helps, stay strong!
