The Nightmare Mental Movie Reel of Affair Images
If you’re being tortured by affair images, you may wonder if a sadist has been allowed into your mind who takes particular joy in crippling you with pictures that there seems to be no escaping.
Your images can cover a wide, nightmarish range, such as:
- The paramour seducing your partner.
- Your partner looking at the paramour with hot desire.
- Images of the two of them intimately entwined.
- The paramour walking off into the sunset with your partner.
And maybe the sadist in your head has really ratcheted up the pain and added even more scenarios and accompanying images.
In a hefty percentage of affair situations, the affair victim never had their actual eyes assaulted with actual images… they didn’t have to suffer the agony of walking in on their partner in the middle of the deed.
It’s actually your own imagination, supplied with a few random details and possibly a picture, creating these images. You can look at this as the one positive in this mess: when it comes to the nightmare mental movie reel playing in your head—you can control the projector.
Here are two tips for playing with that film so you can move toward destroying it altogether:
Tip 1: Start the Projector Rolling on Your Terms
Find a quiet place to sit where you won’t be disturbed. Close your eyes and picture yourself starting the movie of your partner’s affair…
Allow the images to come to you in whatever way the movie and characters develop.
Tip 2: Manipulate the Film
When your images are clear in your mind, start playing with them. Stretch the movie out on that inner screen until all the characters shrink. Then, stretch the movie vertically and watch them stretch the other way.
Roll the movie backwards. Slow it down and make the voices drag out. Speed it up and turn them into mice sounds. Picture an eraser that comes and blots out parts of the scene you don’t want. Picture a permanent marker inking out anything you don’t want, and drawing in anything you’d like. Maybe an elephant crashing through the scene. Make yourself laugh, if you can.
The point is, this is your inner sanctum, and you control the projector. Each time an image pops up, remind yourself that you can control it, and begin playing with it. Eventually, these images will begin to lose their hold on you.
