He’s Using Porn: I Need Support

by | Abuse Literacy

Betrayal Trauma is a Symptom of Abuse

If you are feeling frustrated that you are experiencing symptoms of betrayal trauma as an innocent victim to the addict’s chaos in your life: you are not alone.

Emotional abuse and sexual addiction are painful realities to deal with and betrayal trauma is the devastating result that women experience when trust is betrayed through the abuse that accompanies betrayal.

Betrayal trauma symptoms can be severe. But you can begin the journey to healing with safety, self-care, and support.

Emotional Abuse Is Serious And You Deserve Support

Pornography use is not a stand-alone issue. Gaslighting, crazy-making, blame-shifting, and other forms of psychological and emotional abuse are insidious ways to control the reality of another person: tactics that addicts and abusers often use to protect their harmful decisions and keep themselves from being accountable.

No one is immune to the pain that comes from being emotionally abused.

You deserve support.

4 Ways To Find Support From Emotional Abuse

No Matter What He Chooses, You Can Choose Safety

Betrayal victims deserve safety. Safety is found through setting and maintaining appropriate boundaries. You can set boundaries to keep yourself and your children safe.

Your safety does not depend on the choices of your partner. He may choose to continue using pornography and being abusive. You can choose to seek safety for yourself and your children, regardless of his decisions.

BTR Coaches can help you through this process.

Betrayal Trauma Recovery Can Help You Find Safety And Healing

Betrayal trauma victims often struggle to find others who can relate in a genuine way to what they are going through. The Betrayal Trauma Support Group meets daily to bring love, compassion, and support to women who are all on different levels of their journeys to healing.

Remember, you are not alone.
