My name is Farida, (Not my real name)
I am saved by God's grace but i have a problem. It’s something I've been battling with: my emotions. Sometimes I get so carried away and let my emotions control me and this happens most especially when I see or think about this guy.
He's my very good friend. I love him so much; that's if what I feel for him is actually love and not lust. Although, I can say that our relationship has moved from being normal friends if I'm to be sincere.
I like him for his intelligence and good features. He is cool and sings well too.
Most times, when I chat with him online or talk to him on phone, I start feeling somewhat of a kind; like I really want him close to me at that moment. It’s killing my relationship with God. It’s eating me up.
At a point it was like I was left to choose between him and God but I have to choose God, yet I still can't let go.
Just last week I decided I would not talk to him on phone or chat with him at least for a month but I couldn't even do it.
This has being ongoing for close to two years now.
I've prayed but it’s like it isn't working.
Please I really need help.
Signed: A troubled teen!
