Betrayal Hurts… “My Husband Betrayed Me With a Man”
Reality suddenly shifted into something she had never imagined.
The betrayal was painful, but an added dimension of pain was that her husband had betrayed her with a man.
“In one morning, the whole paradigm of my world shifted.” That was the day I woke up. When I asked myself the question, ‘Is my husband gay?’” -Shero
He told her that he had been acting out with other men.
She was confused and conflicted.
Numbness, Pain, Doubt: When Your Husband Betrays You With a Man
She didn’t know how to react or how to respond.
Then the questions came.
Had he ever been attracted to her?
Had their entire relationship been a lie?
Why hadn’t she known?
When did this happen?
Had he always been like this?
Why did he even marry her?
She didn’t have the answers and wasn’t sure she wanted them.
The Pain Can Be More Overwhelming When He Says He Betrayed You With a Man
That’s when she shut down.
That’s when she stopped feeling.
If she stopped feeling, it wouldn’t hurt so much.
If she stopped having emotions, she wouldn’t have to feel the pain.
She spent a long time not feeling, not having emotions.
Then, that weekend, that day, she decided to begin feeling again. She decided to begin healing.
