This is one of the most painful things anyone can go through. You feel like you’re losing your mind, you feel betrayed and you have no idea how to handle it.
But there are steps you can take to get through this difficult time.
Here are 10 tips on how to get over your husband’s mistress:
1) Give yourself time to grieve. This is a process and it will take some time for things to sink in, for you to accept what has happened and for you to start processing it all properly.
2) Don’t blame yourself for his infidelity or make excuses for him.
3) Know that this isn’t about him cheating on you all these years — it’s about him having an affair! He cheated on his wife with another woman for reasons that have nothing to do with her. It’s about them both being unhappy in their marriage and looking outside their relationship for fulfillment and excitement that they weren’t getting from one another. That doesn’t make it any less painful, but it does make it easier to accept if they’re going through with divorce because they want out of an unhappy relationship.
4) Take some time off work if possible so that you don’t have to see your husband during this very painful time.
