A pathway to healing after my spouse was unfaithful:
I can say without hesitation that the TAKE YOUR LIFE BACK weekend was absolutely "LIFE CHANGEING" for me. When I registered for the weekend my intent was for the weekend to help me decide what I had been struggling/waffling with for the past 9 months, "should I continute to stay in this relationship or should I move on"...
I guess I assumed that it would be mostly dealing with stuff around understanding the unfaithful spouse (and it did help me understand), what I didn't realize and what actually helped me the most, was that in the course of that weekend I was able to heal some deep wounds and release some very heavy baggage that I have been carrying around for many, many years!!!!!
I had previously done a lot of "self help" and seen several counselors during the course of my life so I was aware of the baggage I have been carrying around but I have never known how to get rid of it. For me the practical exercises were the key to the change that has taken place with me.
The first day back after the weekend was great, I felt like I could conquer the world, then life started to slowly creep back in but I am happy to say that I have been able to manage, and not let anything get me down.
I have a new positive outlook on life. Over the past months prior to attending the weekend my mind would often start obsessing about my husband being unfaithful, and about if we divorce how am I ever going to find someone to love me, to be a family with, no one will ever want me.... I would spend hours thinking of this, and now I have released that thought and I am able to think that I am going to be fine with or without someone in my life.
This is a time for me to heal and spend some time with myself and learn to love and appreciate myself again, and spend time with my son. I don't go into panic mode anymore when I think of holidays, or vacations and how all the other families are doing them together. I have even been able to release the anger that I had toward my unfaithful husband and go back to being cordial and amicable when I see him because of our son.
I had dinner last night with a close girl-friend and she can not believe the change in me. She said she sees a radiance coming out of me that she has never see before (she has known me for the past 6 years). She cannot believe the transformation.
I am writing all of this to you so that you will know how you have touched & changed yet another life! I don't know how I can ever thank you enough for doing what you do so well!!!
I truly Thank You for changing my life!!!! I will never forget you, and the Passionate Life Team!
