Your man wasn’t stolen, your self-worth was

When you’ve been cheated on, it’s easy to think that your man was stolen.  The truth is, a man cannot be stolen – he’s an adult capable of making his own decisions.  What was stolen was your self-worth and it was collateral damage.

How can you rebound from this?

  1. Step back from the situation and look at it critically.
  2. Acknowledge and own your part in what happened.
  3. Talk things over with a counselor or trusted, non-judgmental friend.
  4. Keep a journal.
  5. Work out your anger at the gym.
  6. Present yourself well (dress, hair, make-up, etc.).
  7. Focus on your strengths.
  8. Set goals with the specific intent of giving yourself successes to build on.
  9. Expect set-backs and develop a Plan B to handle them.
  10. Life is not a dress-rehearsal, make sure you’re truly living.
