"Oftentimes people face issues which feel so overwhelming and whose consequences seem so far-reaching that the individual may not be able to access the internal strength to solve the problem on their own. In a sense, they may become trapped in what is known and familiar. A person may come to the conclusion that they are worthless, or that there is no hope, or become mired in a feeling of uselessness. These thoughts may come from familial, social or cultural experiences and can cause people to live a life where they feel out of place or unable to achieve to their fullest potential."

Your partner is not who you thought they were, your relationship is not what you thought it was; in essence your whole world has been turned upside down. Learning of a partner's affair often leads us to "rethink" our whole lives.This crisis can serve as a stimulus for stepping back and taking stock of your life, carefully considering the kind of future you want to have with or without your partner."
