Teresa talked about her upcoming webinar and how she can help women who want healing after being betrayed by their partners. Many partners feel like they are going crazy and the cheater often wants you to believe you are the problem and reason they cheated.
This is simply hogwash and manipulation on the cheaters part. Partners have typical symptoms to the betrayal, which resemble post-traumatic stress disorder—the same problem that war vets come home with after serving a term on the front lines of war.
In the interview, Teresa talks about some ways you can calm yourself and treat the symptoms. One example is to do deep breathing to calm your body. Once you calm your body down it is easier to think and you will feel less overwhelmed.
