Betrayal Trauma

We all want thriving, fulfilling and committed relationships. Unfortunately, the ones we once loved, betray us and that causes unimaginable pain and suffering. Many instances can be considered relationship betrayal. There are the more obvious betrayals such as infidelity, secrets, and lies. Other less commonly discussed forms of betrayal can be discovering one’s partner is a sex addict or demonstrates sexually addictive behaviors, such as extensive pornography use, sexting, etc. The article “Post-traumatic stress and psychological health following infidelity in unmarried young adults. Stress and Health. 2019; 35”, link betrayal trauma with chronic stress, depressive, and anxiety symptoms. Unresolved infidelity may be associated with PTSD

The discovery of infidelity often leads to:

  • Loss of self-esteem and self-worth
  • numbness
  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Obsession about affair details
  • Depression
  • Suspicion and paranoia
  • Substance use, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms
  • Physical symptoms, including insomnia, pain, and stomach distress
