Healing From Betrayal Trauma

Addo Recovery Logo

Many of us have experienced the agonizing pain that spousal betrayal brings.  Whether it be pornography addiction or extramarital affairs, we often suffer in unnecessary isolation.  The fear that keeps us bound in isolation may stem from fear for our spouse, fear of judgement, fear that it is our fault, or even fear that speaking of it would some how shatter the illusion that maybe the problem just isn't that big of a deal.

Unfortunately, many women with betrayal trauma aren't receiving the proper care they need and deserve.  Left untreated, such a state can lead to long-term negative effects.

The beautiful thing is, we don't have to isolate.  There are many other women walking the same path that we are, or have in the past.  Beautiful, courageous and brave women that are willing to share themselves and heal together.

Addo Recovery has also joined the fight against suffering in silence.  Addo is offering a free six week (online or in person) education course dedicated to teaching tools and coping skills to help women heal from the betrayal they have experienced.

I highly recommend enrolling in the free education class they offer - you can do so by visiting their website here.

Please don't struggle in the darkness.  There are many hands outstretched for you.  Just reach back.

  3. What a great idea - hopefully the word gets out about this. So many do suffer in silence without knowing a way out.

Thank you for sharing a moment with me:-)

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
