When you first learned that your spouse cheated on you, no doubt there was a whirlwind of negative thoughts that hit you all at once. You may feel numb at first. Then the questions and self-blame start to creep in: “How could this happen? Is this my life? Why would this person I love do this to me, to our family, to our marriage? If only I hadn’t been so busy with work, she might not have strayed. I must not be good enough for him anymore.”
After the affair, negative thoughts invade your mind, threatening to sweep away your ability to cope with daily life, to feel balanced, to focus on saving your marriage. These negative thoughts are extremely difficult to get rid of.
With this in mind, we’d like to hear about how you are coping with your negative thoughts …How long have you suffered with these negative thoughts? What have you tried to help you through this period of crisis, when your thoughts don’t feel like your own? Have you experienced success in changing and or eliminating these negative thoughts?
Please respond to each other in the comment section.
Have a great day!
