RELATIONSHIP RECOVERY ISN'T THE ONLY RECOVERY.
It's easy to get caught up focusing on the relationship or even getting your sexually addicted partner into recovery. However, that's not all there is to recovery.
There are 3 unique but sometimes connected recoveries:
– Your personal betrayal trauma recovery
– Your partner's recovery from addiction
– The relationship recovery
Without the first two, the 3rd cannot happen. Please don't confuse repairing the relationship, with your own personal recovery.
The wounds you received in betrayal deserve to be seen and tended to. Fixing the relationship, won't replace your own personal recovery.
