About C. Mellie Smith

C Mellie Smith is a former betrayed spouse who was able to pick up the pieces and move on with her life after several affairs rocked her marriage. Infidelity Healing is where she shares tools and resources to help you replace the pain of infidelity with relief and hope.

Discovering the betrayal and then having to cope with the aftermath is a crazy, crazy time! Understand that if you are in severe pain and distress, you are not alone.

Over the years, I healed from the pain of this loss, but it became my mission to educate myself about repairing marriages where infidelity has occurred, so that I could teach other couples how to heal.

Today, there’s a lot of help for men and women who have caused or been victimized by infidelity. There’s no need for you to suffer in silence due to the shame that you feel.

There are many couples who never go to the effort to repair the damage that’s been done. That’s why the statistics are so grim for infidelity healing. It is impossible to know at the outset whether adultery is the harbinger of death in a marriage or a life altering wakeup call that leads to a fresh start, but it is my hope that you’ll be comforted by the stories of those who have walked the path and come out stronger for the experience. All you need is some guidance, and I’m here to hold your hand – whether you were the one cheated on or the one doing the cheating.

I know what you’re going through. I know the trauma you’re feeling. Rest assured there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I can help renew your optimism. And while no one can guarantee the outcome of your story, the evidence is clear that where shattered hearts can be put together, a stronger marriage often results.

The one thing I know for sure is that the sooner you begin repairing things, the better. Waiting only widens the divide.  Recovering from infidelity is not impossible. With work, marriages can indeed recover and even flourish after the rift that betrayal opens has been repaired.
