“Words mean nothing when your actions contradict...”  – Uknown

 Many people are hurt by cheating in relationships. This month, OUT's TEN81 centre looks at being betrayed by a partner and how to deal with it.

Take time to allow yourself to feel your emotions

Do not rush a life-changing decision

Avoid retaliating

Find someone to talk to

Start the process of forgiveness by gradually letting go of negative feelings

This doesn’t mean that you have to trust the person, or rebuild the relationship again

However, trust can be rebuilt over time by open communication where feelings can be discussed honestly

Consider speaking to a counsellor together
