Excuse Me! How do you start to rebuild yourself when everything falls apart at the same time?
Betrayal Trauma and Infidelity.
Research now confirms that those who discover that they’ve been in a relationship with a sex addict or chronic cheaters experience symptoms of trauma and can even develop PTSD. Post-traumatic stress disorder.
A person suffering from PTSD or CPTSD often
relives the distressing moment or disturbing events, even flashbacks and nightmares, plus fatigue from lack of sleep.
When a person is reliving events they are trying to make sense of what has happened.
As a response to flight, fight or freeze.
To make sense of what is happening.
You lost all sense of your past.
You lost all thoughts for your future.
You can not process the situation. To use an analogy, it is like your brains filing storage of memories has been tipped out and all of the files are now spread all over the floor and are mixed up. You now have to start picking up these files and putting them back in some sort of order or completely discarding them.
Some memories will not serve you well and will trigger painful reminders of the situation, leading you to process negative thoughts and emotions.
Each time you start feeling discomfort or discontent or your thoughts are producing negative self-talk you need to be able to interrupt the cycle.
Something I learned about in a personal development event, when I attended “Dream Builder Live” in October 2020 with Mary Morrissey.
Think of your thoughts as a radio broadcast
You are the person in control of turning the dial and can start tuning in to a different frequency.
Every time you get that repetition of a situation or event tell yourself.
I’m interrupting this broadcast for the good of my mind body and soul. I am a being of the Universe and I deserve to live a life I love living.
