Infidelity Quickie #6: Affair Aftermath - I Have No Life

by Dr. Robert Huizenga - The Infidelity Coach
Learn from these real life extramarital affair coaching scenarios.
In the first section the person struggling with the marital infidelity summarizes the scenario or concern and what he/she would like to say to his/her cheating spouse.
I then outline some goals that help him/her break free from the affair.
The last and important section gets at shifting the focus away from the spouse/partner to him/her self. In other words, what does all this mean for the person on the receiving end of an extramarital affair? After that mental shift (which is NOT easy for someone in the pain and turmoil of perhaps losing one's spouse, family, and home) I, the coach, offer phrases that he/she can relay to his/her spouse in a way that speaks directly of his/her concern and has the best chance of being heard and getting positive results.
Section 1: The "offended spouse" says:
I have no life. I can't seem to take care of basic needs that were so easy before. I'm not sure if it's his intention, but I feel he's in control of my life. We can't have a discussion without it turning into an argument. All I wanted was the truth from him. His story about what happen. What he did with her. There are things I know. (I found), there are things he's told me, and there are things he says. His story doesn't make sense. I feel like I have pieces to a puzzle, and I can't put it together. I don't want to love him anymore. I want to live a basic life again. I wanted a chance to forgive him, and trust him If only he trusted me with the truth.
Section 2: Personal goals suggested by the coach
Surround yourself with people who affirm you, people you know (intuitively) who give you accurate input.
(You) treat with care the part of you that feels powerless.
Begin to rate your feeling of powerlessness on a scale of 1-10. Notice changes daily or hourly. Note what happens to alter that feeling.
