What Everyone Needs to Know About Extramarital Affairs... and what you can do to help

Written by Dr. Robert Huizenga, The Infidelity Coach

Continued from page 1

The emotional impact ofrepparttar discovery infidelity is usually profound. Days and weeks of sleeplessness, rumination, fantasies (many sexual) and unproductively follow. It typically takes 2 4 years to "work through"repparttar 122015 implications. A good coach or therapist can accelerate and mollifyrepparttar 122016 process. I don't recommend "marriage" counseling, at least initially.

The devastating emotional impact results from a couple powerful dynamics. Trust is shattered of one's ability to discernrepparttar 122017 truth. The most important step is NOT to learn to trustrepparttar 122018 other person, but to learn to trust one's self. Another isrepparttar 122019 power that a secret plays in relationships. THE secret exacts an emotional and sometimes physical toll that needs to be acknowledged and dealt with.

How can you help?

Those inrepparttar 122020 midst of their affair crisis told me they need this from you:

1. Sometimes I want to vent, get it out without censor. I know sometimes I will say what I shouldn't be saying. It may not be nice, pretty or mild. Please know that I know better, but I need to get it off my chest.

2. Every so often I want to hear something like, "This too shall pass." Remind me that this is not forever.

3. I want to be validated. I want to know that I am OK. You can best do that by nodding acceptance when I talk aboutrepparttar 122021 pain or confusion.

4. I want to hear sometimes, "What are you learning? What are you doing to take care of yourself?" I may need that little jolt that moves me beyond my pain to seerepparttar 122022 larger picture.

5. I may want space. I may want you to be quiet and patient as I attempt to sort through and express my thoughts and feelings. Give me some time to stammer, stutter and stumble my way through this.

6. I want someone to point out some new options or different roads that I might take. But before you do this, make sure I am first heard and validated.

7. When they pop into your mind, recommend books or other resources that you think I might find helpful.

8. I want to hear every so often, "How's it going?" And, I may want this to be more than an informal greeting. Give me time and space to let you know exactly how it IS going.

9. I want you to understand and welcomerepparttar 122023 ambivalent feelings and desires. I would like you to be fairly comfortable withrepparttar 122024 gray areas andrepparttar 122025 contradictions about how I feel and what I may want.

10. I want you to be predictable. I want to be able to count on you to be there, listen and speak consistently or let me know when you are unable to do that. I will honor that.

Extramarital affairs are powerful. Affairs are costly. They affect family, friends, colleagues and employers. Infidelity is also an opportunity to redesign one's life and love relationships in ways that create honor, joy and true intimacy.
