I have been having an affair with a divorced man for at least 4 years. I am married with grown children. I would like to break away from this relationship but can't. Emotionally, it hurts to think about not being with him, seeing him or talking to him. On the other hand, I am unhappy and on an emotional roller coaster with the guilt. I am a professional executive. I know better. In every other situation, I react and am able to take control and resolve problems. People look to me for advice and direction. Would you help me answer a few questions. Why do I feel so bad when I try to break things up? Why does it hurt my heart and soul so deeply that I get physical symptoms? But, the most troubling question to me is, why do I feel like I'm nothing when I'm without him? Why do I need his (the other man's) attention, love and adoration? I feel like I'm a rational person. I just can't figure me out. The affair is wonderful...when we're together. But, my marraige sustains me. My husband's understanding and love keep me going. But, our romance has faded. There is no excitement in our marriage. I hope that you can help me sort a few things out. Thanks for listening.
