You never thought you’d be dealing with this. It’s not what you had in mind when you walked down the aisle, that is for sure.
When you’ve been betrayed, you feel hurt and alone.
Who can I talk to about this, you wonder? It can be hard to share this particular hurt with family and friends. You’re likely questioning what to do next, what does this mean? Will we be able to get through this, or should I get out now?
It is normal to find an affair to be a uniquely shattering experience.
The sense of grief, loss, and betrayal are so overwhelming.
If you are the partner who stepped outside your relationship, you may be hurting too. Wondering how you got here, and feeling enormous guilt, shame, and regret. Maybe you don’t want to talk about it. But you love your partner, and want to fix this.
