If my partner has had an affair, Ive likely spent countless moments wondering whether to end the relationship permanently. How can I ever trust them again? How do I know it wont happen again? These questions and many other weigh heavily on my mind.
In truth, there is no way I can know the answers to these today, or perhaps ever. In comparison, do I know for sure that the world will exist tomorrow?
What I am able to do however is improve my awareness of how much I want my partner to act and be certain ways, in order to "trust" them again. Do I need the sun to come up tomorrow, before Ill trust it to come up another day?Likely not. Maybe what I need to learn to trust most is myself, and my ability to handle rainy days as well as sunny days. No matter what choices my partner makes, I have the power to find joy and magic in each moment. Its very likely my SO is looking for the same kinds of joy and magic, and hasnt discovered yet that dishonesty only gives them a "fake" version of each.
