Thank you for the kind words. I start each day thinking 'I can do this' and end each evening facing a brick wall. Rotten state to be in! My problem is the other party in this mess, sadly, was my go to person for bad situations, and I haven't been able to just vent,get things off my chest, and try to gain some perspective. My other close friends are mostly family, and they don't need to be thrown in the dumpster with us. I guess this is the reason I came to this site! Thanks again.View Thread
I just found out on New Years day that my husband has been having an affair with one of my best friends. After multiple days of discovery, each new layer only confessed when cornered, I am just starting to be able to breathe. I guess I am looking for some feedback on how to move forward. He is now seeing a therapist, who is working with the compulsive aspect of what they have done. To do this is absolutely not in his makeup, so feel this is positive, and most days think we can get through this, but quiet times, evening and commutes to and from work are defeating me. I really was betrayed by 2 equally important people in my life. We are in the same social circles, and I don't know how to handle going into the public area where we are sure to cross paths. We have 2 grown sons with families of their own, who are also living in this area,and I am choosing to protect them from this situation at this time. Is that the right thing to do?? I just don't know. I understand that for us to get through this, I will need to at some point trust again, but right now I cannot see myself getting there. They met often while I was at work, and I am really struggling with this. Guess I just need to know there is some hope that I can get past these horrible movies that keep flashing in front of me if I stop moving, or tools that I can use to erase them. Can trust ever really be restored??View Thread
