Will time really heal a broken heart after being cheated on?

I have already decided to try to make the relationship work, and ive started the forgiving process but it feels never ending like my heart will never heal.

Well, yes. If you forgive you must not bring up throw in his face. Accuse him all the time. 1Corinthians 4 Love is patient, love is kind.It does not envy,it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude,it is not self seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. Its hard to really forgive. I'm telling you these things cause we all fall short. Hope this helps. God can heal a broken heart. And even if you don't believe, He is with you.

No problem. Unfortunately I'm talking from personal experience and my wife gave a second chance. He is lucky to have you and I can only hope he realizes before its to late. Also, bad advise about telling friends or family. There is still family that holds a grudge 16 years later. I know its hard, but anytime you need you can go on any of my answered questions and ask to talk. My wife, is yinandyang4ever and maybe able to help also. Since she has been in your shoes and decided to forgive. I'm glad my comment helped and look forward to future talks.

Well thank you i appriciate it very much, i figured asking here would be my best bet at advise and support. i figured someone out there has been in my shoes and has survived and made their relationship work after the cheating. Im glad to see im not alone and it is possible to make it through this rough patch

It takes some time. My wife never throws in my face. We rarely argue though, and almost never raise voice. If one does the other just waits till things cool a little. It can work, and only you can judge your situation and who he is. You know, Bible says when you are married you are as one. You know why? My wife doesn't have to say a word I know when something is off. Her with me also. She may ask what's wrong and I give her look, means I tell later. Her its like pulling teeth to get out sometimes. Lol. Then when she tells I'm like, that's it? Lol I'm praying for you and him. You are strong. Its easier to leave and I am thankful God made strong woman who stick by there man when they make a BIG mistake. Talk soon, and thanks for your comment.

Time will heal a broken heart after being cheated on. You need to give yourself that time to heal. During that time, you need to keep your mind off the hurt and keep yourself busy. It might also help you to talk to a close friend or family member about the hurt you are feeling.

Bad idea about friends and family. Then they get into it. No good. I was 16 when I had my first and she told family. 17 years later we are still together and some of her family still holds a grudge. Just telling you from personal experience on what happens when you bring family or friends into it. No argument. Just thought

I will not allow my family to know of the issues my relationship has. I have confided in a close friend and she is very supportive but i want to try to do things on my own a friend cant always be there every time i feel down.

Yes it will, if you have made a desition to forgive and worknon it, it does take work. The hardest rule is: never bring it back up against them, if you really want sucess. Try to think of the things that made you forgive, like the things they do "special" or make you laugh etc. Nobody is perfect in this ole world. Just dont let em do it to you again. Good Luck

It is very hard to not throw it back in his face and rub his nose in the terrible thing he has done. That is my biggest struggle right now but ive been working hard at not doing that. Thank you. I made a list of the "special" things so i can reference that when im feeling down

Its very hard no doubt, its easy to drop and move on but it takes a special, strong person to forgive. He better realize just what he has

Yes time will heal a broken heart but if /when you truly are ready to forgive him you need to ask God to help you forgive your boyfriend. That is when you will truly be able to let it all go and start new. It IS possible. All things are possible through God. :0)
Good luck and we are all out here if you need any help.

If it happens once, yes. If you take them back again then no, because they'll probably keep doing it, can't heal while someone's treating you poorly.
