As a betrayed spouse, one of the hardest conversations you’ll ever have is telling your spouse just how painful their affair was, and how it has left you terribly hurt and betrayed.
You’ve been devastated in many ways, and keeping the pain you feel all bottled up inside after the affair isn’t very good for your emotional and physical well-being.
In fact, if you do not express your pain about the affair to your spouse, it can increase your risk for some pretty serious health issues – heart disease, depression and even cancer, to name a few.
Obviously then, you need to communicate your feelings and emotions to your spouse for your own sake, and for that of the marriage.
Have you expressed to your spouse the immense pain you are experiencing?
If so, how did that affect you? How did communicating your pain affect your spouse and your relationship?
If not, what is holding you back? How has keeping this pain bottled up affected you physically and emotionally? How has not expressing your pain affected your relationship?
As always, please respond to each other in the comments.
