What do you do when everything in you wants to contact him again?
(This Post includes a video below)
Any of us that have made the regretful decision to have an affair, can all relate.
Triggering occurs when something (it can be various things), causes a negative emotional response
within you like sadness, panic, flashback and anxiety, to name a few.
Affair Withdrawal is similar to a period of time one has to detox from a drug,
only this withdrawal is from a person.
It may sound crazy, but there’s a biological response in our bodies going on which complicates our emotions
even more if you don’t understand what’s happening.
After an affair has ended, the once high levels of the brain chemical Dopamine dips low,
and the effect is similar to an addict without their drug. But there is good news.
You don’t have to be at the mercy of these triggers or withdrawals.
Understanding that withdrawal is a normal part of getting over him, helps you realize it really will pass,
it won’t always feel so terrible like it does now. As long as you don’t contact him again.
You’ll find it gets easier and easier, the more you maintain no contact and manage
the triggers and withdrawals as they come up.
I give you some practical tools, tips and ideas to help you get through those rough days.
You’ll hear what my triggers were, how I dealt with them,
how to make a truth list and more, pros and cons list, quality time and more.
