How To Move Past BetrayalMay 03, 2023
Recently a dear friend of mine experienced a breach in her marriage.
A deep sense of betrayal overcame her when her partner told her that she is the love of his life, AND/BUT he needs to be able to date younger women to satisfy his lust.
The internalized social conditioning prizing youth and beauty above all, translated these events for her into: I am old, ugly, useless, unlovable. I no longer belong. Her body shut down. And her sense of self-worth fell to pieces.
