You won’t see it coming, the affair. It’ll blindside you, bring you to your knees, and leave you feeling like you’ll never recover from it. Getting up and moving forward, in whichever direction you choose, will be one of the hardest things you ever attempt to do. So incredibly hard, you’ll think it impossible. At least that’s how it was when it happened to me.
But move forward I did, and so will you. By taking one breath, and then another. By putting one foot in front of the other. First, though, there’s gonna be more body-wracking sobbing than you’ll think you can withstand and a whole lotta hollering out to your god.
When you’re ready, you’ll make your decision and you’ll begin to see it through. And whether you stay or whether you go, either way, it’ll be one of the biggest acts of courage you’ve ever mustered.
And you’ll feel so incredibly alone in all of it. It’s the shame-fueled silence you’ll feel shackled to that will allow the loneliness to descend and take hold. Don’t let it. Don’t be fooled by shame or ruled by silence. Because you won’t be alone in your story of infidelity, I’ll be right there with you. To read my story published by Her View From Home, please click here.
