Leading marriage counseling website, marriagesherpa.com, publishes 3 steps on how to heal from infidelity. According to Marriage Sherpa, post-affair pain is difficult to escape from.
“There’s not one inch of yourself you can retreat or escape into in order to shield yourself from the onslaught of post-affair pain. Not even your sleep is spared,” the marriage counseling website notes.
The victim of infidelity needs to be focused on being empowered again, says Marriage Sherpa.
Marriage Sherpa suggests that acceptance is the first step. “If you don’t face your emotional turmoil, you can’t move into a healing phase. Part of healing is accepting those emotions as they come, and then managing them.”
Journaling is recommended by Marriage Sherpa as an outlet and self-empowerment tool. “You already feel rotten enough, and negative self-talk can hurt even worse than the initial affair your spouse had. Self-empowerment comes from being your own best friend—and best friends are kind to us.”
Finally, Marriage Sherpa advises infidelity victims to engage in activities that promote self-confidence. Think back to some of the happiest times of your life when you were pursuing something you liked to do: how did it make you feel? Empowered? That’s a good sign. You may want to revisit any activities that you have ever engaged in that made you feel strong and capable.
