Ok here is my deal I haven't told my IC about us becoming swingers , my stupid idea so he wouldn't cheat . I hated it refused most of the time and felt traded for sex and in all honestly I was. Since I wasn't into it 100% cus I didn't like it and always only wanted him. Should I tell IC or it don't matter!!

Tell.

I do tell everything. If I am not honest with myself and my IC, my time and hers are wasted.

My story is similar to yours. When we were together we told our MC everything. After STBXWW ceased therapy, I have continued in IC with the same therapist and tell her absolutely everything. That is what a good therapist is there for: don't hold back. Let it all out. It is cathartic.

All the best.

I tell everything.

That's why I'm going and paying all that money and I don't feel authentic otherwise...feels wasted, instead.

If you are judged or don't like the reply, you could always get another one.

Sometimes nothing we try to do is going to keep someone from cheating-it's not on us to try to keep it altogether, but on each one of us, responsibility, that is.

I'm sorry you were compromised and hope you won't anymore. Stick to what you believe in and be true to yourself!

Yes. You tell everything. Every embarrassing, shameful thing.

Everything. You are trying to heal yourself, but your not being authentic to the one person who can guide you towards healing.

Absolutely tell. My IC is seriously the only reason I made it through the separation, the false R, and the final split. Seriously.

If you can't be honest with your IC maybe you need to find a different one?

Yes! That's the only way they are going to be able to help you put all the puzzle pieces back together and help you be whole and strong again. Plus, you can almost bet that they have heard it all and more before you sat down in their office.

Open your heart, the truth will set you free.
