Infidelity is rarely about sex. It is most often a symptom of attachment needs not being met in a relationship. The good news is that healing from an affair can make couples stronger!
Affairs are a way for people who are feeling lonely and empty in their relationship with their partner to fill a void. Unfortunately, those feelings of hollow seclusion can only be masked temporarily, and infidelity leaves a permanent scar on a relationship. However, recovery from the relationship injury of infidelity is possible.
It may seem unbelievable, but it is a fact that many couples who are able to overcome the trauma of infidelity and rebuild their relationship find that the relationship is deeper, more closely connected, and stronger than ever. They have learned to be authentic with one another, to communicate openly and vulnerably, and to love exclusively and unconditionally.
If you have suffered the injury of infidelity or are unsure how to earn trust and forgiveness, call or email to schedule a consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
Infidelity does not have to be the end. It may turn out to be the catalyst that your relationship needed to set off on a new beginning.
