Support for Partners of Sex and Porn Addiction

It is understandable that this will be a difficult time for the partners of a sex addict.

Many partners are left feeling a variety of emotions as they struggle to understand what is happening in their life. These feelings can be extremely overwhelming, especially at first, when they find out.

A partner can be left struggling with who they can turn to for help, they are feeling in a state of shock.

Below are just a few of the feelings an individual can have after finding out about their partner's hidden secrets.
  • Betrayal
  • Anger
  • Profound Sadness
  • Hurt
  • Blame
  • Loss
  • Low Self-Worth
  • Guilty
  • Resentment
  • Anxious
  • Fearful
  • Shell-Shocked
And the list goes on. In fact, the result of finding out can be absolutely devastating for a partner. They can be left with a feeling of not knowing what to do next. Unsure if they want to want to stay or leave. "Do I kick my partner out or do I try and sort this out?" "Is it my fault?" is a common question?
 
Trying to make sense of what has happened can be very difficult, and it can be hard to reach out to a friend or a loved one.
