sexualaddictionWhether your spouse or partner has confessed to a sexual addiction or you have come to learn about it another way, there is no shortage of emotions you are going to feel.

Sadness. Confusion. Disgust. Pain. Betrayal. Anger. The list goes on . . . and on.

You’ve screamed, yelled, cried. Perhaps you’ve moved out or want to break up. Maybe you’re wondering why you weren’t good enough for him or her. Your spouse may have even tried to blame you for having a sexual addiction in the first place.

Even worse than the pain or being blamed is the feeling that you no longer recognize the person to whom you’ve committed yourself. You have no idea how you will ever get to know your partner again or love them the same way.

Two Important Facts to Remember:

  1. It’s not your fault, no matter what relationship struggles you’ve had or what you’ve done “wrong.” In fact, it’s nobody’s fault.
  2. You CAN overcome this. As hard as it may be to trust right now, things can be as good, or better, than they were before. You don’t have to believe this yet, and that’s OK—you’ve still got grieving to do.

Sexual Addiction Counseling

Some spouses of sex addicts would rather deal with death than the pain of discovering their partner has a sex addiction. But making rash decisions or trying to overcome the pain alone may actually bring you more hurt in the long run.

Healing takes a lot of work and a huge amount of effort needs to go into it. No matter what you learn or have read about sexual addiction, it takes a lot of tools to build your life back up. Fortunately, you can gather those tools with sexual addiction counseling.

Sexual addiction counseling is imperative for those trying to cope with the sexual addiction of a loved one. Even if you resent seeking help for something that someone else has done, sexual addiction counseling will facilitate a path to recovery—a path that you should not have to find alone.
