I never thought about how hard it would be to choose between the past and present.
Imagine if the one you loved vanished and you presumed that they died but it was hard to accept because the lack of proof. Then lets say so many years later after you have been able to rebuild a new life for yourself you have found a new love and have made a whole new life with them, then out of the blue that first love comes back rescued from the situation that made them vanish. Then they come to see you knowing that you have moved on for the most part, they know you still love them but they know that you had to let them go because you thought they were dead.
Would you fight the utter desire to want to take them back? To away with them? To be with them and pick up that love again. Or would you let go in a way but still go forward with the life that you built with out them?
I never gave much thought to something like this till after my husband and I watched a movie that had that situation presented. I thought to myself what would I do? I know I would feel the longing for the other man raging inside me and I will say that the temptation to go with him would probably be unfathomable, and then there would be the painful longing to stay with my family my husband and my beautiful daughter.
I know what I would want to say I would choose but I will never know for sure, the human body and emotions can do very unpredictable things even if some one says one thing but then confronted by that situation they end up doing the opposite.
So I have to leave this unanswered and say I don’t know what I would do. I know what I would want to do. All I have to say is I am very grateful to God that I will never have to be faced with that kind of choice.
Not even you can say for absolute certain what you would do in that situation. As humans we are ruled by our emotions in.
