Strawberry Letter: What Have I Gotten Myself Into?
Dear Shirley Strawberry & Steve Harvey,
I have gotten myself into a predicament. I have fallen in love with a married man. Not only is he married, he is the pastor of a local church. I did not know know he was a pastor upon entering the relationship, however, I did know he was married. I knew better. My momma taught me better.
However, I let the desires of my flesh overrule my head. We have been at this relationship for around 6 years now. We have discussed being together, having a family together, and living happily ever after. As the years have gone by, I began to come to the realization that he is not going to leave his wife. She is fully aware of me and of the relationship I have had with her husband. I made the conscious decision to move on. I haven’t began to date again because my heart is still healing and I really just need time for myself.
I am a recent college graduate and am trying to find my niche in life. However, he will not leave me alone. He is very possessive. He leaves me messages that accuse me of sleeping around and has called me out of my name. In other words, he says if he can’t have me no other man can have me either. He said he would rather sit in jail knowing I am not with another man than to see me happy with someone else. I do not know what to do. I know this is the bed that I have made and that I must lay in it. However, I feel he is taking it too far. I am still young and have no kids of my own yet and one day would like my own family. I feel I deserve someone who is devoted only to me.
Am I wrong for this?
