‘Don’t obsess over the life you once HAD’
Woman’s agony aunt Suzie Hayman shares her advice on dealing with the aftermath of an affair…
When the person you love falls for someone else it can feel like you’re second best. no. it just means he can’t appreciate your true worth – but someone else will.
Put the children first. don’t bad mouth him, or his new partner and encourage good contact for your children. He was a lousy partner, but he can be a good dad.
cry on your loved ones shoulders but not your children’s. then consider the benefits of your new life. You can pursue the dreams you had that he didn’t like.
