Surviving infidelity is not easy. Surviving infidelity is possible though despite how it feels when you are dealing with infidelity. I cannot begin to pretend I know how you feel and what pain, anger and resentment you are struggling with.
I do know that there are many couples who have overcome cheating and are living as one with forgiveness and trust in their relationship. It doesn’t take a miracle or supernatural event to heal a broken marriage. What it takes is perseverance, determination, commitment and purpose.
The main reason why I say that surviving an affair is possible is because it’s been done before.
You might be thinking that every relationship is different and it’s like comparing apples to oranges. I agree with you that every situation is somewhat unique. However, I assure you the pain is the same. The level of anger or resentment is pretty much consistent is most cheating situations.
So, I respect your feelings of being uniquely wounded in this situation. However, at the end of the day does it really matter? What really matters is how you are going to recover from infidelity.
Surviving infidelity is a choice. The choice is to move forward, backwards or stay in a depressed, angry state of mind for the rest of your life.
I hope you realize that it is better to move forward and not get stuck in the past or present. To survive infidelity you must make a decision to do so. Once you make the decision it’s important that you let your actions line up with your decision.
You need to take it one day at a time and make sure you are doing things to heal your broken heart and relationship.
There are steps that you can take to get to the place where you can forgive your cheating partner. Once you can forgive then you can move towards trusting again. With forgiveness and trust no longer roadblocks to your healing you are ready to not just survive infidelity but have a loving reconciled relationship.
Please believe that you can survive infidelity. Believing is everything because without it you will struggle and probably fail.
