#138: I’m Full Of Anger And Resentment. How Do I Let It Go?
Caller Tami's Question: "A couple of mths ago I'd responded to a podcast where you'd role played, mentioning that I felt the "betrayer" seemed they were portraying avoidant behavior likely to cause a betrayed to feel there's more secrecy. I am a huge proponent of the betrayed asking anything they want. It has helped me immensely (anxious type- I'll make up and fill holes if I don't know - which is usually worse than the truth!). Anyway, you'd asked about coming on - I'm completely open to it realize that. Also, a more pressing question for me - a yr out from discovery, is the pure hatred I harbor for "the other woman". My husband & I have done therapy, the marathon talks, tears, healing....a lot of work, we are even in the process of considering a vow renewal in July...however, I still harbor such a vengeful spirit and hatred for this "other person" and it makes me feel I'm still tied to the crisis, the past. How do you let that go when you have no positive regard to offset the ill will??? It's a lot to hold."
