The Anger Scared Me

After discovering my husband's infidelity, sadness and loneliness were safe emotions, but they morphed into something entirely different under the weight of denial.

brilliant clip

i am also very angry and some of the things i do are very unhealthy in trying to shove down the anger

shoving down anger

Anger is a normal part of the journey. Shoving it in seemed like a good option but it only made a bigger mess. Going for a walk helped me. So did punching a pillow! Spilling out thoughts in a journal is another option. Praying you find some healthy ways to diffuse your anger.


thank you Lynn
you are lucky your husband wanted to try to work towards recovery
thank you for your blog post tho it really really helped me to watch it


Yes, I am grateful that my husband and I did the work together. I"m so glad this blog was helpful for you!



You give me hope that one day I will be as happy as you are today. I hope I've made the right choice to stay in my marriage after 28 years and rebuild. I've been dealing with anger and sadness for 3 months and I wish those raw feelings away everyday. I've learned coping techniques but they're a part of me now.


Those emotions are no joke! And totally understandable given the circumstances of your life. I think the best thing to do is FEEL them. Journalling helped me and saved the people around me from the backlash of my emotions. Praying for you
