its been a little less than a month since i found out my spouse of 8 years cheated on me. i feel like an idiot because i thought we were so in love. we had all these plans for the future and now they’re just gone. they asked to talk to me a few days ago, and they said that “there’s always a chance we could get back together. because true love always finds it’s way back” but they’re now in a relationship with the person they cheated with. did they think i was going to wait around for them? did they just want to see if the grass was greener on the other side? im torn because i don’t want to be used but i miss them so much, and i loved them to pieces. i don’t know how to move on without it hurting so much.

you should stay strong and stick to avoiding him. you’ll only feel bad if you go around and allow him to use you. take one day at a time. give yourself time to heal. respect yourself, treat yourself kindly and understand that you deserve better. the hurt is strong now but these emotions will pass. understand your boundaries then stick to them.
