7. Continuous Healing
Whether you decide to forgive your man or not, you will definitely need some time to fully heal. Counseling is a great option for some and shows that you and your man are willing to change and move forward together. Some men have difficulty with counseling and believe it is a sign of weakness to seek help from a “stranger.” This is a close-minded approach and should not be an issue if your man is truly committed to mending your relationship. If he raises concerns about therapy, explain that this is your requirement and you feel that a 3rd party involvement will only help by expressing your emotions in a neutral setting. Since your partner committed an act of infidelity he/she must support you in the healing process. The objective is moving away from the experience and always emerging as a better person. Life is full of lessons, but it’s up to you on how choose to deal with them.
