Letting the Pain of Cheating Go
Have you been cheated on or the victim of infidelity? It can happen, and even more upsetting than the event itself can be the lingering resentment and pain that can be felt even years after. What’s the best thing to do in such a situation?
The Huffington Post reports:
Affairs can be painful and shocking and can cause betrayal and hurt. Yet some couples do recover. Mattie and Jim had been dating for several years before they got married. They swore in front of their friends and family that they wouldn’t cheat on each other. Yet, seven years later, they sat in front of me in my office, broken and ashamed. Feeling rejected by your partner? Psychic Hern ext. 5239 can tell you what’s going on.
“I’m not sure what happened,” Mattie said. “First we drifted apart. It sounds so cliché. But I let other things take priority. My job, the house, and then we had a baby. I put everything in front of our marriage. I felt Jim slipping away. I knew that our sex life was off. We never slept together or even went to bed together at the same time anymore. There was damage. But I swear I never dreamt it would get this far.”
Jim sat forlorn on the couch in my therapy office, trying to put the pieces back together. “I went online; I was trying to figure out how to find some attention, some thrills I guess. Mattie was totally taken up with the baby. At first it was only flirting with some friends on Facebook. Then I found I was asking girls to meet me for coffee. I don’t know how it happened, but eventually I was having drinks with an ex-girlfriend from high school and then we slept together. I know Mattie’s crushed, and I regret it. I hope she can forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it.”
“Trust is so important in relationships and it can be a deal breaker when trust has been broken.” – Psychic Deejay ext. 5435
For some couples like Mattie and Jim, divorce after an affair may not be the answer. A strong foundation of love and a desire to make it work may mean that an affair can be a path to a renewed, and even stronger, relationship.
Our psychics can offer comfort and ways out of the anger and pain.
