I wanted to share with you something that really helped me in my recovery journey. We often are so distraught by the affair that it’s hard to know and understand how to make the first step towards recovery. However, there are many things one can do once they are in the “recovery zone” to help build confidence and potentially even save the marriage. Today, I will share with you one simple tip that can get you going in the right direction.
As most of you know, I am a big believer in affirmations. I think words carry power.
During my recovery phase, there were many times when I would say to myself, “I don’t know if I can recovery from this.” or “I don’t feel like my normal strong, confident self anymore.” These are very common thoughts and feelings that most women have when they’re rebuilding their lives and self-esteem after their husbands cheat on them. One of the first and most important steps in your recovery is to fight negative thoughts like these. So the next time you hear yourself saying, “I don’t know if I can be happy again.” stop and say the opposite: “I can recover and will be happy again.”.
The simple truth is that both statements are true, depending on which one you choose to believe.
No matter what circumstances are surrounding your husband’s infidelity, you have the ability to recover and be the strong and confident woman the world loves to see.
