I'm no GYE veteran, and still have lots of issues of my own, but I'd say just let them pass. Thoughts of something we spent a lot of time and energy in don't just go away in a second.
There are probably ways to work on them, but they definitely don't go away in a second.

Amazing!
Keep it up!
do you have a plan in place when lust/fantasy occurs?

Re: Square one 08 Mar 2021 16:48 #364984

To be honest no, which sounds stupid when I write it down. Mainly I'm trying to be preventative and avoid situations where I'll feel vunderable. Do you have any recommendations on how to formulate a plan?

A few questions for everyone here (I might start a dedicated thread for this)

1) Have you spoken to a friend about your struggles?
2)How did you start the conversation?
3)Was it beneficial to either of you?
4)Is he someone who struggles, and if not, could he relate to you?

Thanks for your help
