Surviving Infidelity Series: Is There Hope for the Unfaithful After an Affair? Rick Reynolds, the founder and lead therapist at AffairRecovery.com, oftentimes says we learn far more from failure than we can ever learn in success. It's a principle that can be applied in everyday life, and specifically, in recovery from infidelity or addiction. How we handle failure can determine our next phase of life, and our next phase in maturity. After an affair, the last thing we need to do is cause more pain, to our spouse or to ourselves, and as unfaithfuls, finding new life and new hope for our future is paramount. Today, Samuel shares a poignant and much-needed discussion with unfaithfuls about their future, their moral failure, and, if they are willing to do the recovery work, their potential to heal.
