Fair question. I’m never one to advocate staying in abusive relationship or just sticking it out for the sake of sticking it out if neither party desires to grow or change. In the case of cheating, it really depends on the person. It’s such a violation of physical and emotional boundaries, it can completely sever trust. I’ve not survived any of my past relationships where there was cheating as I couldn’t get the thought out of my head of her being with another person, and from there you spiral deeper and deeper. Other people I know have found the power of forgiveness and I’m also a huge advocate for that. That doesn’t mean that what they didn’t do was wrong, it means that you no longer hold it against them and allow it to poison you.
