How To Heal
Firstly, it is important to accept your struggles and pain currently as normal. To get to the other side, unfortunately, you have to go through it. There’s no shortcut. But you don’t have to go through it alone. Therapy and supportive people can help you through it every step of the way. Treat your many feelings (and they will change) with kindness. Allow them to come and go. Feelings get stuck when we resist them. Increase your self-care, reach out to friends, go on walks, journal, go to therapy. What you are experiencing is normal. And it makes sense. Be courageous and invest in your own healing. Life can be beautiful again and you are worthy of experiencing it fully with a special person. Whether you are able to work through the conflict in the relationship and experience this beautiful life with your current partner, or if it is with someone completely new, that beautiful life is waiting for you. Having an infidelity trained therapist is crucial to your healing and your relationship if you are willing to work through this traumatic event. It may be online therapy in the comfort of your home, relationship therapy, or individual therapy; but seeking out an infidelity/betrayal informed therapist can greatly accelerate your healing process.
For Information and Support
This is the time to focus on yourself and treat yourself with love, care, and self-compassion. Treat yourself like you would a close friend who recently went through a traumatic event. Invest in your own healing, take the time for yourself to heal properly. Seek out a well trained therapist who is aware of the steps to healing from infidelity. The sooner you invest in your own healing, the sooner you can reach that beautiful life that is waiting for you on the other side of the grief that you are feeling now. Invest in yourself and know that you are worth everything beautiful that life has to offer.
