I think that this is an important message for the betrayed to know as well. I already feel like I didn't do enough or somehow he just wasn't satisfied with me. And I am not perfect and I never will be, so for him to forgive me for not being perfect, is just a realization that I am human and not infallible. It is a realization that he loves me and wants to be with me just as I am, flaws and all. Isn't that what love is, it says, "I have seen the ugly parts of you and I am staying." It might not be an accurate assumption, but that is the way that I am feeling about it. And it isn't saying that I am responsible for the affair in any shape or form, but that our marriage wasn't perfect and I did contribute to that.


Totally relate, but I don't think my husband trusts this and understands the importance of the truth! ALL THE TRUTH, even the hard responses. It does help for painting the picture of something we didn't know.
