Affairs & Repairs: Possible to Heal?

Emily Porta

Is healing is possible after your trust has been broken?

In the midst of all the media coverage with sites like Ashley Madison or Established Men, and kind of the threat of their clientele being exposed and all of their personal information, I just wanted to start a conversation.  I wanted to share with you guys kind of my experience with affairs and the kind of people that walk in my door.  And their hope and their despair.  And what that's like and how therapy can help.  Often times, if not always, you know the discovery of an affair of any kind, whether it's an emotional affair or a physical affair, it's a betrayal. And so, someone is often times left just feeling completely shattered and hopeless and wondering how in the world could we ever get past this?  And often times, more often times than not, the couples that I work with are able to do that.  And there's a lot of work that goes into that.  And it's not easy to do, but it's possible.  And I just wanted to share that with you guys today.  If there's anyone out there watching this right now that's listening, that's going, "I just don't know, Robyn.  I don't know if I can do this.  I don't know if I can ever trust her again.  Or him. I don't know if I want to do this.  I don't know if I want to put the work in to rebuilding something that we worked so hard for."  I hear you.  And you're not alone.  And you don't have to do it alone.  And if this is something that you're struggling with, call me today.  You don't have to go through this in secret and full of shame and guilt.  Call me.  Let's work through this together.  And if I'm not someone who it's a good fit, you know, or if you're not in the Laguna Hills area or Orange County area of California, I'll help you find someone who can help you.  Because this doesn't have to be the end of a relationship.  Call me.  If this has been helpful and you want to check out some of my other videos, hop over to YouTube.  Subscribe.  You'll get these in your email weekly, if you subscribe to my channel.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me (714) 390-1652.

Talk to your Gut

Emily Porta

I find myself saying this a lot..."what does your gut say?" I say this to myself, friends, family and clients. I would say the majority of the time, we know a lot of the answers to our questions, but we lack confidence or are filled with fear and anxiety. So if you have a big decision to make, here are some quick tips:

• Do you have to have an answer now? Sometimes "wait" can be a good thing, even though it is hard. Just because someone else wants you to hop to it with an answer, if you feel overwhelmed and confused, take a step back and breathe. It is your life. You get to decide how and when you give answers to questions asked of you.

• What is your first instinct say? That is what I mean by follow your gut. In an instance, your heart (your gut) has a reaction to a question or decision that has to be made. Right after that instance it begins to get muddled up with what everyone else has said.

• Don't worry about what others will think about you. Be true to yourself. If you make a decision based solely on what makes other people satisfied, but makes you miserable...you are headed on a path of resentment. That path is no fun!

• Trust yourself. You know you best. You are probably your worst critic as well. Sometimes we lose site of our desires, our intelligence, or our ability to think for ourselves. Start practicing getting to follow your heart and see where it leads you. You might be surprised!

So, at the end of the day, you have to live with your decisions, but I bet that you can make some good decisions. Give your gut a voice!
