How Do We Find Connection When There’s Been “Mutual Betrayal”?
A PBSE listener recently sent in a situation and question— He has been in recovery and "clean" for a year. At one point during that year of recovery, his wife admitted to having an affair while he was in recovery. His question is—"How do I help my wife trust me again while I'm also having trouble trusting her?" - Why does "mutual betrayal" happen??? - This is a VERY complex form of trauma and requires a very specific and comprehensive approach to healing. An "outside" support system is CRITICAL! - Underneath all the pain, a couple can learn to "mutually empathize" with each other. - Through this painful process, as a couple you can learn that you have a "mutual enemy" and you can "have each other's backs" in fighting that enemy.
