I am a 58 year old woman, divorced for 2 years now. XH was a serial philanderer. During the past 2 years I’ve been going to IC and have become very happy with myself. I was at the point of being alone, but not lonely, and embracing my life.
Lo and behold, I am now dating a wonderful man. He is grounded, no significant FOO issues, has custody of his 2 children (teenagers) who absolutely adore him.
Are there any good books out there addressing the issue of how to maintain “healthy” relationships? Through IC, I am working hard on trust issues, not only because of the activities of my XH but because I grew up in an alcoholic family. I did not cause my XH’s infidelities, but I realize now my contributions to the “unhealthy” aspects of my marriage.
Just trying to continue my growth. And also learn how to make the most of my new relationship which shows much promise.
Thanks in advance!!
