When Both Spouses Feel Abandoned: Attunement Part 2

Attunement: A 2 Part Series

Part 1: Bridging the Gap Between the Unfaithful and Betrayed Spouse
Part 2: When Both Spouses Feel Abandoned

During healing from infidelity, attunement is a couple’s best friend. When both spouses are in touch with one another’s inner world and inner pain, oneness is within reach. When one or both spouses feel abandoned in their pain, they have a tendency to become roommates; you stay in your world, I’ll stay in mine, and we’ll just coexist. The end result is separate lives and feeling as though your partner, who you need now more than ever, is a country mile away.

Attunement creates the opportunity to not only draw your partner into your world, but to also display compassion and love for their pain. Abandonment at any age is awful. While feeling abandoned at a young age is detrimental to emotional and psychological growth, this same feeling as an adult can be catastrophic in the marriage. Today Samuel shares how to overcome this toxic system to find genuine healing and connection.
