I was happily married in a relationship that had been faithful almost two decades, and preparing for a 19 city speaking tour for my first book, when I learned that my husband had an affair. My husband’s affair left me feeling shocked, devastated, heart-broken, deeply hurt, angry.
And I couldn’t stop asking myself “why?”
Fast forward three months. I had slipped into a pattern: Unable to get out of bed. I was averaging over twenty hours a day under the covers.
I felt like I wanted to die.
THE WAKE UP CALL
All total, the shock of learning about my husband’s affair sent me into a two-year tailspin of anger, depression and isolation. As a result, my business suffered, my health suffered, and—most heartbreaking for me—my relationships with my children suffered.
Even so, I was lucky. I did eventually heal the pain, forgive, and find genuine peace-of-mind.
Some people hang onto the pain of betrayal for a lifetime. The effects show up on their faces, deep in their bodies and in their future relationships. I was blessed to have found a way out that not only healed me, but left me feeling happier and more desirable than I had ever felt.
THERE’S HOPE FOR YOU
I want you to know that no matter what your specific circumstances or what you’re feeling, if you are suffering from the fallout of your partner’s affair and you are ready to heal…you have come to the right place.
Healing from the trauma of betrayal and learning to feel genuinely happy and peaceful is not easy to do, but it is absolutely possible.I know, because I did it. And you can too.
You can turn resentment and fear into genuine happiness.
You can turn the pain of victimhood into authentic empowerment.
You can actually turn his cheating into the best thing that ever happened to you.
I realize that is a bold statement. It might even upset you. But if you are more intrigued than upset by that promise, then you’ve taken the first powerful step on your path of healing.
