There’s no way one can guarantee that their partner will remain faithful and loyal throughout the course of their relationship. Studies have shown that 30-60% of relationships end because of infidelity. When this does happen, the person that was cheated on may feel a whole host of emotions like anger, pain and sadness. There are ways in which these feelings can be controlled.



  1. Allow Yourself to Feel: It’s natural to feel a range of emotions including shock, anger, sadness, betrayal, and confusion. Allow yourself to experience these emotions without judgment. It’s okay to cry, to be angry, or to feel numb.

  2. Take Time for Yourself: Give yourself permission to take time away from the situation to process your emotions and thoughts. This might involve taking a day off work, spending time with supportive friends or family, or engaging in activities that help you relax and regain your balance.

  5. Seek Closure: Ultimately, closure might come from within yourself rather than from your partner. Focus on finding peace and acceptance within yourself, whether that involves forgiveness, letting go of resentment, or moving on from the relationship.
