Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: Growing up too fast   Dear Steve and Shirley, 
I am 24 years old and I have already gotten married and given birth to two kids. I am also working and attending school, both full-time. I have managed to do well in all areas until now. I somehow have lost my focus. My marriage was fine until my husband decided to start going out every weekend. And I constantly battle with men approaching me. I was able to reject them before, but now I yearn for that attention from other men. I don’t care if my husband even looks at me anymore. I am not able to pay attention in class anymore. My husband was my backbone before and I felt like I could conquer the world but since that spark is gone, I can’t seem to keep my priorities together. Do I leave him? He is a good provider, but I don’t love him anymore? Do I find someone else to make me happy? Do I stay alone and not worry about men? What am I to do?
