Slacker and Steve - OPP: Soul Crusher Addiction (Audio)

July 18, 2017

Here is today's OPP:

 

Yi Slacker & Steve,

I'm 29 and I have my life together. I own a house and a car, have a good career and a social life. 5 years ago I met a guy that was spontaneous and adventurous and I instantly fell for him. He knows my deepest secrets and has seen me through some really dark times in my life. Things were great for a long time and then everything changed. He became very demeaning and started to make me feel bad about myself all the time. He ended up taking a job out of state and we ended things and I knew it was for the better. He was gone for 3 years and we barely talked at all in that time. A few months ago he messaged me and said he was coming back. I had dated a few other men while he was gone and I told myself I wasn’t going to let him back into my life. But then as soon as he got back, we were hanging out again and he was up to the same old tricks. I know it’s not healthy, but I can’t stay away from him. I feel like a moth attracted to a flame. I’m smarter than this but I’m also very attracted to him and find myself wanting to be with him. I don’t know why I can’t stop, but I can’t. Why do I do this to myself? Why can’t I just cut him out of my life? Has anyone else been in a situation like this? Any advice would be great.

Why is she having such a hard time cutting him out of her life? How does she get rid of him?

Candy fell head over heels for a guy. Things were great for a long time and then he became very demeaning. They broke things off when he moved away...but now he's back and in her life again doing the same tricks. She's attracted to him and can't stop seeing him even though she knows it's not healthy. Why is she having such a hard time cutting him out of her life? How does she get rid of him?
