Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone had something positive happen to them over the holiday break (if you had one), whether it was watching a show that made you laugh, eating at your favorite restaurant, seeing family and friends, or something else entirely.
As we start a new year, my hope is that everyone can be in a more positive place than they were during the last year. Recovery from a husband’s affair is all about progress, and if you have made any progress, that is wonderful news! It is so easy for infidelity to put you in a disastrous mental loop.
I hope and plan for my posts to be even more positive in 2011. I am in a much more positive place than when I started this blog in September 2009..
One of the things I kept telling myself along the way to stay positive was that I am more than my husband’s affair. Before I took on this mindset, his affair consumed me to no end; I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I had to keep telling myself that I couldn’t let my husband’s infidelity be the demise of me as a person. I am so much more than this situation, and you are too.
You have abilities, skills, and lives to change for the better that are far beyond the circumstances of the affair. His mistake as a cheating husband will not be the end of you—refuse to let it be. It’s a slow and painful process, but if done correctly, at the end of the journey, you come out of the experience being a better YOU!
