I may not be a doctor but I have experienced this situation over and over again and feel I am somewhat qualified to give advice. I can honestly say that when I found out every time I felt like it was the end of the world. I also had family around to try and help me cope. Luckily, I had family around or I wouldn’t have these ten survival tips for you loving people out there. If you do remember one thing I have to say let it be that if your significant other is cheating, then they are not in love. When you are in love, you could never hurt the other person like that.
When finding out that you significant other has betrayed you, it can be very hard and depressing in some cases. When I went through this over and over I would get depressed and down on myself. Everyone around told me that I needed to be with friends. This helps a lot because whether you believe it or not being with friends keeps your mind off of the situation more so than if you were sitting at home dwelling about it.
I also became so depressed at one point that I could not eat or sleep. You should never let it get you down to the point where you cannot be healthy. The person is not worth your health. You have to make sure you are eating properly and getting at least 6 hours of sleep.
I also realized throughout the process that it helped to have a counselor. Counselor are great with helping someone cope with a situation. Talking about the situation and realizing there was nothing you could do to stop it tends to help you get over the person who broke your heart to begin with.
Having a lot of family around got me through every time. I say this because family can be more loving and close than friends and when your heart is broke, love is the best cure. My Mother has pulled me through every time.
I also found that new hobbies keep your mind off of it as well. Reading is a very good hobby due to the fact that books are long and there are many so whenever you need to relax you can read. The survival tips I give about keeping your mind off of it is for those of you that have ended things.
Those of you who have not ended things I must tell you that you should not talk to the person who has wronged you when you are already upset. You can only make things worse. These serious situations need to be delt with delicately.
If you plan on getting back with the other person because you just know you can both fall back in love then you will want to be as positive and mature as possible. You will want to approach the other person in a calm and mature manner only.
I have also found that going to the gym can help you get through aggression, keep you fit, as well as keep your mind off off it. Exercising can also help those of you trying to work things out . Exercising helps you keep your mind focused which can help when its time to talk it out.
When trying to work things out you have to make sure that both of you are willing to try again and want to fall in love again. When your man/woman cheats, it means they have fallen out of love and looking for something new or different. When they are caught, and are remorseful and want to try again then this survival tip is for you.
Another useful idea when going through this is to tell yourself everyday that you are great and that person just was not right for you at the time. You have to be positive to get through it or it can bring you down fast.
I have been cheated on by every person that I have been with and I know what I am talking about. Please take my advice because it can be the worst thing that has happened or it can be the best. It is all in how you see it.
