There are a few things in life that can hurt you so badly that you feel as if you've been hit by a train. Being cheated on is certainly one of them. All the trust that you put in someone you loved shatters in an instant. And you're left with more questions than your brain can handle. You even begin to question your very self.
But the worse impact of it all is that it leaves a mark on your soul. It might make you unable to form that spiritual connection with anyone else ever again. This is a tragedy, and you need to move on from the person who cheated on you. For your own sake and happiness, you need to make healing your priority. Let's take a look at some ways you can do that.
1) Know That It Was Not Your Fault
It's common for people who have been cheated on to think that it might have been their fault. They may feel like they were not enough somehow. You need to get it into your head that it was not your fault at all. It was your partner's decision. It is he who messed up. Only when you realize this can you start the process of moving on.
2) Embrace Your Emotions
Initially, you will be flooded with a lot of emotions and you won't want to do anything else for a while. That's okay. Embrace how you feel. Don't bottle anything inside you. That's a recipe for a long term disaster. Cry and scream if you have to and let it all out. The more you do this, the lighter you will feel.
3) Seek Support From Family/Friends
When we are in deep emotional distress, we tend to push away our loved ones. But it is their support that becomes even more critical during times like these. If you spend more time with them, you will find comfort in the fact that you still have a lot of people in your life who love you and care for you.
4) Don't Try To Get Even
For a brief period, you might be tempted to get even with him. You might want to have your own affair or do something else that can hurt him emotionally. In those moments, all you're thinking about is making him feel the same pain that you did. But, this is a destructive path and will make moving on much harder. So resist falling for these temptations.
5) Take Care of Yourself
It can be easy to forget all about yourself when you're dealing with such huge distress. This can have lasting impacts on your physical and mental health. So, you need to make sure you indulge in self-care practices of which, there are many. Watch your favorite tv shows, eat ice cream, do some yoga, take walks in the park, and do anything that makes you feel better.
