And lastly, as Page explains, being cheated on can offer us one upside, and that’s learning to listen to your intuition in a deeper way.
“Use your newly increased sense of discrimination to recognize deep integrity in your partner,” he says. “You want someone who will remain integrity-based, especially at those times when it’s difficult to do so. Seeing that happen will go a long way toward helping you trust your next partner.”
While it may take time, patience, and deep healing, having a healthy and trusting relationship after you were cheated on is entirely possible. It may not be easy, but when you can learn to be open and vulnerable in all the right ways, get to the root of your healing, and finally start trusting again, your relationship going forward will be that much stronger.
