When our first daughter was born, he had an affair. I didn’t find out about it till a few months ago, though. Turns out there is a child from this affair. I confronted him and he said he was truly sorry, he promised never to do it again. But he did – two years later.
My pain was so intense I could barely think straight. I felt like someone had ripped open my heart. For a long time I was alone in the darkness of my fear and rage. Then I started talking with a peer counselor from Infidelity Counseling Network. She’d been through it, and was able to help me separate my thoughts from my emotions. With her support over many months, I could get grounded and feel the earth stable underneath my feet again.
I don’t know what will happen with Reggie and me. But I know that I will heal from this, I will be a stronger woman in the end. Thanks to my peer counselor, I’m empowered to survive!”
