It’s discussion Wednesday again!
One of the things that I first learned about affair recovery was the importance of taking care of myself – basically getting strong both emotionally and physically and tending to my most important needs. When I mentor someone this is one of the main aspects that I like to stress.
While in the process of taking care of one’s self and perhaps to a greater extent, while experiencing the trauma that infidelity creates, we typically learn a great deal about ourselves.
Life is filled with times of transitions, times of change, times of trauma, times of death and times of crisis of varying degrees. When confronted with these challenges we can choose to face them head on, or we can turn and run.
Believe it or not, infidelity can be an impetus for you to evolve and develop into the kind of person you are meant to be and that you truly want to become. And this goes for whether you are the betrayed or the cheater.
With this in mind, and whether you are the betrayed or you are the cheater…
What have you learned about yourself as a result of the affair?
How has the experience changed you?
Please be sure to respond to each other’s comments!
