Lust or Love

by Courtney (USA)

Dear Lord, It may seem petty and teenage-like, but I don’t know what to do about this. I’ve been told that with age comes wisdom, but I’m not feeling the wisdom. My boyfriend and I broke up about a year and a half ago, and recently I’ve suffered through another break-up that caused me to text the former. We’ve been talking like old times, and doing some of the things we used to . . . sexual things that I’ve broken away from when the relationship ended. This isn’t the first time this has happened between he and I, but I simply can’t take it! When we talk it feels like I love him, but when I get near him I feel like I don’t. I don’t know where to turn or what to say because I feel like I keep betraying him from my own stupidity. Please help me. I don’t do this often, but: I’m weak, and I can’t do this on my own.
