It's tough. Isn't it? You feel this tremendous emotional connection to one person... Loving him or her like you never thought you were able to love. The problem? You're married to someone else.
You probably never meant for it to happen. It’s not as if you went looking for a lover. However, once you fell in love with someone else other than your spouse, things got rather intense. You’re already in what some refer to as an emotional affair. Perhaps you've gone further and the relationship has turned physical.
It was so powerful that you gave up your marriage for it… Your dream is now a nightmare. You gave up everything you needed to give up to acquire this one rare jewel and now the jewel has moved beyond your grasp. You feel out of control. Lost. Miserable.
There is a difference between that feeling of love and being "madly in love."
Most people have never even heard of the word “limerence.” But if someone has heard of it, they probably ignored it because it didn't seem to make any sense. Limerence is a feeling of being madly in love with someone. It is a euphoric sensation that has no comparison.
