Quote from LilaDavis
That being said I'm horrified by myself. Never, ever would I act on this attraction, violate my standards or his trust. But I can't help it, I feel like I've developed a little crush on the guy. I'm not worried about my behavior as I always keep it professional, but mentally this is screwing with me.
I applaud your honesty and perspective, LilaDavis.
We are free to feel any way we wish- our feelings cannot be judged. Our actions, however, can be and we will have to deal with the ramifications of those actions.
It is good that you are bringing these feelings, pretty much anonymous, in an area where you shouldn't have to deal with any negative consequences.
"Never, would I act on this attraction" needs to be your mantra at this time. The Forbidden Fruit appears so very sweet, but it is poisonous!
And, yes, I have been, and continue to be in my old age, attracted to Patients. I acknowledge that attraction, remain as professional as possible, the relationship ends, and is left as two ships passing in the night.
The best to you, LilaDavis!
