This month’s positive point is about re-building trust after behavior that crossed a boundary.
This month’s positive point occurred with two couples with whom I am working. Although they all are completely different people, each couple is going through a similar situation.
The situation is this: one mate made a decision to interact through text with someone of the opposite sex. Although in both cases the communications were merely friendly, the mates texting made a choice to hide it from his or her spouse.
In both cases the spouse found the text, and therein lies the reason each couple contacted me for help.
In both cases, after working together on rebuilding trust, each couple understood that the “boundary-crossing” through texting was a wake-up call for their relationship. Instead of fixating on the “other person,” they understood the importance of shoring up the foundation of their relationship so that situation wouldn’t happen again.
The texting occurred in the first place because there were some cracks in the foundation. Our work together is to ensure that those cracks stay sealed shut!
