#008: Am I Crazy For Wanting To Stay After Infidelity?

If you’re in the midst of the aftermath of infidelity you’ve probably asked yourself this question at least once. “Am I crazy to want to stay in this relationship?”

Wondering if you should stay makes so much sense when your partner has engaged in infidelity and shattered your trust into a million little pieces. In fact, this is one of the first questions you might ask yourself in the aftermath of infidelity. Chances are when you think of staying you can’t avoid thinking of it as a weakness. It is even more difficult to make sense of staying when you have people around you suggesting you must leave your cheating partner. So, what do you do then?

This episode of Relationships Uncomplicated is for partners who have been hurt by infidelity and are considering staying in the relationship. I talk about the shaming that hurt partners go through when grappling with the decision to stay. The episode includes the reasons why people closest to you tell you to leave and what happens in reality when couples handle the aftermath of infidelity.

By the end of this episode, you’ll know if it makes sense for you to stay because we discuss the 4 super-powers you’ll need to go through the process of healing successfully.  And lastly, we offer some guidance on what options couples have to help them heal from infidelity.

Tune in to move forward with your partner on this new journey.
