Dealing With Infidelity: Learning How To Go On By Forgiving

Forgiveness will likely be the very last thing on your mind if you have just recently discovered that your wife or husband has been being unfaithful. After all, the person that you trust the most has just betrayed you. Forgiveness may begin to appear to be just an abstract notion for you. But do realize that it is possible to forgive.

Successfully dealing with infidelity, actually, requires that you learn to forgive. You’re really giving your marriage an opportunity of survival by finding out how to forgive. You should accept the fact that not all unions could be saved. If you would like to save your relationship is still your own decision ultimately. You will have to have a strong will to stay with the decision that you make specifically if the decision is to stay with your unfaithful spouse. It can be helpful for you to be aware that there are many victims of unfaithfulness who have learned to forgive. The only real prerequisite is that both partners should be prepared to restore the marriage.

To be really honest, you simply cannot expect the process of healing to be effortless either for you or for your unfaithful spouse. Dedication will be necessary to fix the ruined relationship. It may not seem possible if the detection of the affair is still fresh. It can be done. Although the ache of adultery may be preventing you from seeing the silver lining, it truly is doable.

This idea may be hard to understand but the first step in learning how to forgive is actually accepting the truth that the unfaithfulness indeed happened. You can try but despite whatever you do, you simply cannot change the past. Denial is a natural thing to experience when your wife or husband betrays you but do not let yourself be caught in that stage. You have to learn the first step to go on to the next.

The next stage is to learn to communicate the feelings that you experience to your spouse. This really is more difficult than it sounds. One of the things that keep victims of infidelity to communicate their feelings is the fear that their spouse won’t understand them. Learning how to communicate your feelings well to your husband or wife is essential not just in forgiving unfaithfulness but your marriage as a whole.

The aim of conveying how you feel to your wife or husband is to heal. You don’t want to sound like you are blaming your husband or wife even though you have every right to do so. A person being blamed will respond normally by being defensive. You will feel many emotions when your wife or husband becomes unfaithful but it is good to communicate only one feeling at a time. Our brains are normally limited in the way they process information. Your husband or wife could even become more defensive once you tell him or her regarding all your feelings all at once. Start small although be consistent.

Need To Be In Control?

Are you a controlling personality? Well, congratulations. You’ve been gifted with leadership traits. Keep in mind, though, that there are those who lead wisely, those who are mediocre n their leadership and some who are so infatuated with their need to control that they are downright ornery, or bad or evil. The latter have used their gift of being leaders in the wrong way.

Men and women who are natural leaders are in every business, government and family. We all are influenced, by them in governing bodies, but especially in the family that is, essentially the center of our lives. Those within the family unit who have controlling natures would serve the family best if they didn’t misuse those abilities.

Children need a measure of control throughout their childhood and teenage years. Parents need to be in control and call the shots. As a child grows and matures, though, he is expanding his own abilities in the process of becoming an adult. The control that is shown over him/her by the parents also should be a process, so that the “letting go” is gradual, giving a little more independence to the child, bit by bit, to keep pace with his maturing process. That way he/she will, in time, come to the point of being able to make good decisions without the parents overseeing everything. If she/he starts making decisions that are immoral or harmful, though, as she nears adulthood, parents need to step in decisively and hard and do what is necessary to put a stop to it.

The marriage relationship is different altogether. Husbands and wives should not attempt to control each other. There is an order that should be set up, yes, with the husband as head of the family, for God ordained that. However, head of the family does not mean, as far as his wife is concerned, that the man has a right to bully her, dictate, lay down the law, disregard her, order her around, or do anything that does not show her honor. Husbands… honor your wife…” we are told in the Bible. Honor is a strong word.

However, if you are being controlled by your wife and it is hurting you and the family unit, take a look at our material to men so you can learn how to turn things around. If you are confused about the headship issue, we’ve dealt with it extensively in my books to men, Forever My Love and Keep Love Exciting & Lasting.

The wife is her husband’s partner by divine appointment. If she’s the natural leader and thus the strongest personality of the two, she still shouldn’t step into her husband’s shoes, so to speak. If she would have a peaceful, happy home and children who are not confused about their sexuality, she’ll allow her husband to fulfill his God given role as the one who makes the final decision if there is disagreement over an issue. She’ll respect him and his decisions in such cases even if she is not in accord with them. She’ll praise him and hold him up as a role model for the children. A woman still can maintain her independence that way, but at the same time, she’ll be assuring her husband’s love and admiration of her.
