If there is one certainty in the aftermath of an affair, it is that it can tear down your self-esteem.
After the time, love, and trust that you have put into your husband and your relationship with him, a betrayal such as this can make you feel small, uncertain, and worthless.
In the blink of one thoughtless act, your whole world feels like it is crumbling down around you.
Your self-esteem is essential to every aspect of affair recovery. It is essential for you to move forward with your own life, and it is essential if you ever hope to rebuild and recover after your husband’s affair. Especially if you hope to have a healthy and happy relationship with your husband after the affair, you will need a healthy self-esteem to keep the relationship going. In fact, it may be one of the single most important parts of being able to move on.
