Worthy of Love
Learning your spouse has a sexual addiction can feel like your world is caving in on you. You are spinning out of control and have hundreds of questions flooding your mind. Did this happen? Why is this happening? How do I fix this? How will I survive this? Do I leave him? What do I do?
This is a violation of trust by the person you are supposed to trust the most. This violation is called Betrayal Trauma.
“As if the betrayal wasn’t enough, I was too ashamed to tell even my closest friends and family about my husband’s infidelity. I felt like I couldn’t trust anyone, not even myself. When you live with someone who is always keeping secrets you begin to go crazy trying to always find the real truth of things. It took me a long time to realize that I needed support too. Betrayal trauma is real trauma. I needed help to find myself again and to rebuild something new with my spouse. While he was getting help for his sexual addiction, I was rebuilding my world on authentic love and truth.” - Marianne
