48. How Do I Handle Crushes?
Show Notes

I don’t know if you are anything like I was in middle school and high school, but oh my goodness, I had so many crushes! 

 Anytime a boy was nice to me…or for that fact even talked to me or I thought he was even the slightest bit cute (forget him ever talking to me…in my mind, I practically had us getting married. I would practice writing my first name with his last name. Yep…crushes were a big deal for me. Honestly it was an obsession.`

 And I know that some of you listening, you may not have gone as far as I did with practically seeing them as my future husband, but you know that having a crush can be a big deal!

Maybe it looks like this…every time you get dressed in the morning, you get dressed with him in mind, “I wonder what he will think of me. I wonder if he’ll like it. I wonder if he’ll notice me.”

And you definitely know it’s a big deal when, like me, he is all you can think about. It seems like he consumes your every thought…so much so that your friends are getting a little bit tired of hearing about him…or maybe they join in on the crush and cannot wait to talk to you about them. 

Maybe it’s gotten to the point where you go out of your way just so you can see him. Maybe you have his class schedule memorized and you know exactly which locker is his and you…just so happen to be walking by those places hoping to get sight of him. 

Every time you get around him, your brain can’t give you a coherent thought…maybe you start giggling…your stomach is fluttering….ugh! 

Now, I want you to know having a crush is not a sin, however, if that crush becomes an obsession, that’s when it becomes a problem and let me tell you, I was obsessed with just about every crush I had!
