It lasts awhile but it does get better. It takes a lot of time. And a lot of patience and humility.
"That's the thing about pain, it demands to be felt."
I hoping this gets better soon!
It does and it doesn't. Mostly it will be exactly what you make of it. It's not that your being pulled in a thousand directions its that you aren't getting the ego strokes or validation from your A. On top of that you are being held accountable by your wife. For many of us waywards, myself included this was a hard transition. The only way it got better for me was seeing things for what they are. Not what I wanted them to be, you get angry and frustrated because you want to run emotionally but you know if you do that reconciliation is over so you feel stuck right?
What are you going to do different then every time before?
Its still going to be draining for quite a while. Two weeks is just the tip if the iceberg. Its a marathon, not a sprint. Do not give up or become complacent. Find your outlet, regroup and stay in it for the long haul.
It really does get better.
It is counterintuitive really... the less we defend our well-being, the more well we feel. ~ Nancy Colier
