No doubt they are strong and powerful images that have taken over your thoughts but you should know these images will ease and begin to fade. The terrifying movie in your mind will end and you will make progress and move forward.

Maybe you are only aware of very few details beyond the fact that your husband cheated. Possibly you know the location and when it occurred. You don’t need specific details of your spouse’s affair to create the script. Your mind is doing its best to fill in all the blanks.

You picture this other woman as being perfect, charming and funny. Then you can see your husband’s arms holding on to this woman while the horror movie in your mind starts playing out intimate scenarios. You think your unfaithful husband see’s her in a way that he has never looked at you before and he is even treating her better.

It’s terrible that these images have taken over your mind and specific details of the affair are replayed in your dreams.

Your emotions along with the images begin to feed on one another, leaving you feeling absolutely drained. What you feel and picture is probably a good representation of all the emotions you’re going through including fear, distrust, and feelings of betrayal.

The affair is nothing but a rollercoaster of emotions that so many victims of an affair talk about. Ultimately, this can derail your best efforts that you’ve attempted to make to save your marriage and survive the affair. You’re simply too exhausted.
