Finding out a partner has had an affair can be a devastating experience for you, your future, your health including sadness, anger, shock and disbelief.
If your partner cheats, it’s hard to understand why he/she could do it. Below are some suggestions what you need to do afterwards.
1-Reach Out to Trusted Friends
Don’t go through this alone. Reach out to a friend that you know can be supportive and free of judgment.
2-Try to Understand Why or How the Infidelity Happened
Make sure you listen and don’t make assumptions.
3-Understand It’s Not Your Fault
There are many reasons why people cheat. Infidelity is not always the symptom of an unhappy relationship. No matter what the situation is, your partner has a commitment to you, and you can’t feel responsible for it.
-Avoid Social Media If You Can
You don’t want to react online and write about how much you hate your partner. “Don’t post fake and nude pictures of your cheated partner, don’t post happy photos to get your partner jealous or to pretend you’re OK when really you’re not.
-Reevaluate The Relationship
You should take a step back and decide if your partner cheating is something that is forgivable. Show empathy, not hold grudges and eventually forgive and let go.
