Coping With The Hurt Caused By Infidelity

Jul 20, 2008
Love is a great feeling and marriage is a great social arrangement for living a complete life. However when a partner of a marriage or a relationship cheats it really hurts the other partner a lot. He/she undergoes a tremendous mental agony and feels very difficult to cope with the situation. He/she feels so rejected and dejected.

No one expects to be hurt by infidelity, but what do you do if it does happen to you? Some feel that the stress and mental anguish are too much to deal with, but remember that this is not the end of the world. You can come back from the hurt and pain you feel. If children are in the picture, keep living for their sake. If not, work through the hurt and continue living the life God gave you.

Since no one expects to be hurt by a cheating spouse, few people know how to deal with it if it does come up. The first way to work through the sadness and disappointment is to try to keep the relationship going. Even though you have been hurt by and are angry at your spouse, you can still love them and want to work things out. If they are truly repentant, and hopefully you can tell if they are, and mean their promise to never let it happen again, you should give them another chance.

Whatever you do, do not let children who are involved feel the pain or responsibility of their parent's mistake. Do not take out your feelings on them or expect them to be the ones you can pour your heart out to. Instead, comfort them and protect them from the hurt you feel at all costs. Try to keep the infidelity from touching them in any way. After you have taken care of your children, you will be free to deal with the emotions you feel on your own or with the help of other adults.

Another way to deal with the hurt caused by infidelity is to throw yourself into your work. The more you focus on your work, the better your work will be. You will also have less time to think about your hurt while improving your position at work. You could also find something new to focus on such as a new hobby.

If music is a hobby you enjoy, try putting on some soothing tunes to relax you and to slow the racing thoughts in your mind. Watching a mind-numbing but funny television show can also give your mind a chance to rest.

You may learn yoga and Pranayama (breathing exercise) which will help you to calm down your nerves and give you a peace of mind. Yoga will help you to attain a strong body and mind. Pranayama also will help you to get a calm mind. You can learn meditation as well. Meditation is a great art which will help you to live a brave, happy and peaceful life. It gives a lot of physical and mental strength.

It is true that infidelity hurts you a lot: you cannot afford to brood over it and let it harm your health and mind. You can avoid being alone and try to be with friends and relatives to lessen your worries. If you handle the situation with cool nerves and proper methods, you will definitely cope with the hurt caused by infidelity. I am sure these tips will help you to know what to do if hurt by infidelity. You will experience a new life full of happiness once again.
