For others, those frustrations can turn into deeper resentments, and when betrayal and hurt create real ongoing problems, we may harbor secret fears that our love has died, that our connection is severed. We don’t talk about it, we don’t share it, we might be terrified when those feelings surface.

Working through intense frustration and betrayal and even long term dullness can happen, but there are certain steps we need to take move through the hardest stages of recovery. Find out how.
