Last week I put out a blog post in which I invited you to submit their questions regarding retroactive jealousy, my guidebook, and anything else I could potentially help you with.

I didn’t expect a response like this.

I’ve received a pile of thoughtful, encouraging, and insightful emails and questions from you, and I’m a little overwhelmed at your support. Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me. It’s incredibly encouraging and rewarding to interact with you one-on-one.

So then: without any further ado, I present to you my first Q and A video! This week’s question comes from Dave, who writes:

You mentioned being wedded to the imaginary past in Chapter 6 of your guidebook. Could you elaborate on the imaginary past notion? What if it’s not imaginary? What if too many details have divulged and it’s not imaginary anymore?

See below for my response and know more about retroactive jealousy…
