A marital affair is devastating on a marriage, but even more so to the victim. Devastating to them both physically and mentally. I know that my self-esteem took a huge hit after the affair. I’ve been able to regain much of it, mainly by reading books and educating myself about affairs and what they really mean. Talking with Doug about the affair and the fundamentals of it has helped as well. I still struggle at times, but I now know that the affair wasn’t really about me. I become stronger and more confident with each passing day. Our wish is that this can be the case with all of you as well.
The discussion topic for the week…How has your self-esteem been affected as a result of the affair? What are you doing for yourself to regain any loss in self-esteem? What needs to happen, or what do you still need to do to help regain your lost self-esteem?
Please be sure to respond to each other’s comments!
Have a great day!
Doug & Linda
