How To Heal After A Betrayal


This podcast is about how I found SAL after my husband started using pornography again.  I realized how bad my situation was after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge.

Abuse Is A Form Of Betrayal

At the time, I didn't realize I was in a verbally abusive relationship, but I did know that I couldn't handle the physical intimidation anymore.  I have learned that the fear I felt when he punched walls, kicked things, etc, was very real because physical intimidation in and of itself is domestic violence.  The physical and emotional abuse I suffered while trying to help my husband overcome his pornography addiction, led me to the point of despair.  I knew that my life and my husband's behavior was totally and completely unmanageable.  When I found out about my husband's pornography addiction, I thought I knew how to deal with infidelity.  I was wrong.

Abuse of Wives and Pornography Addiction / Sex Addiction Generally Go Together

Many women in SAL come because of their husband's infidelity.  For me his pornography use felt just like it, and I knew if he didn't get help, it would lead to affairs.  Many of the women in my group have suffered from that exact same escalation of events. I hope the infidelity stories, or rather the stories of healing after infidelity will help other women start their recovery. Dealing with abuse and pornography in my marriage with a positive attitude and sheer grit, didn't get me anywhere.

Being in recovery for betrayal trauma has helped me change my behaviors, so I could see the truth about myself and my situation.
