“Words mean nothing when your actions contradict...” – Uknown

Many people are hurt by cheating in relationships. This month, TEN81 looks at being betrayed by a partner and how to deal with it.

• Take time to allow yourself to feel your emotions
• Do not rush a life-changing decision
• Avoid retaliating
• Find someone to talk to
• Start the process of forgiveness by gradually letting go of negative feelings
• This doesn’t mean that you have to trust the person, or rebuild the relationship again
• However, trust can be rebuilt over time by open communication where feelings can be discussed honestly
• Consider speaking to a counsellor together
