One of the hardest breakups you can experience is a breakup that happened because your partner was cheating on you or having an affair.

Whether your partner was in a long-term relationship when they started dating you, or you found out they were dating someone else while you’ve been with them for a long time, it’s an extremely painful thing to go through.

When you find out your partner’s been having an affair, it may feel like your whole world is caving in, especially if they were someone you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with.

Of course, if you find out your partner had an affair, you are allowed to feel upset. It’s absolutely devastating and makes you question everything not only related to your relationship but to yourself as well.

You should be able to take the time you need to mourn your relationships and the dreams or hopes you had for them. Feel everything you need to feel. However, there will come a time when you have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and move forward. 

After all, if you stay down after getting cheated on and let this event destroy you, that’s like letting your unfaithful partner win.

Here are some tips for recovering from this kind of relationship trauma and healing from heartbreak after getting cheated on.

Stop blaming yourself

My heart aches when I see women start blaming themselves for their partner’s infidelity or start looking for what they may have done wrong that would make their partner want to cheat on them. Some people with old-fashioned views may try to make you believe it was your fault your partner went elsewhere, but it’s not.
