my husband of 10 years revealed he has been having an affair for 8 months and has left the family home today. I have two beautiful girls age 5 and 7. I had no idea (despite having 3 bloody degrees!) I’m completely devastated and, if I’m honest, frightened. Feel like I’m such a cliché but it was the last thing I would consider him capable of doing. Don’t know anyone else really who’s a single mum. Feeling so alone. Any advice would be so much appreciated x
I am so sorry to hear this. I cant imagine how shocked you feel. Be prepared for so many feelings to hit you in the next coming months. Surround yourself with loved ones and take it day by day. If you have access to a counsellor to help you through this – it may help! Keep strong and remember you are everything your children need right now! Xx
My husband of 20 years left 3 months ago after an affair, still going on. I was devastated and frightened (which admittedly scared the life out me). It has got better and easier to manage the tricky days. Having friends and family to talk to, has been a God send. I’ve also found writing things down, my thoughts etc. has helped me massively, especially when it was still raw. Emotional roller coaster is an understatement but it does get better. Take each day as it comes and being kind to yourself is important. If you need time out from work etc. then do. You know we’re all here, if you need a rant/chat. You’ve got this!
