Going Deep: Learning to Heal and Rebuild Trust After Relationship Trauma

In our last ‘Going Deep’ episode we talked about our way down; all the ways in which trust was broken and how our relationship almost ended several times. If you haven’t already listened to it, we highly recommend you take a listen to ‘Going Deep: Our Story of Infidelity, Sex Addiction, Love, and Trust’ first; it catches you up with our entire story — through the lying, cheating, broken boundaries — and how we made it through to the other side.

This episode we really wanted to focus on how we healed and learned to rebuild trust after our relationship trauma. We talk all about our experience and offer advice and tangible tips that worked for us — that hopefully, you can try on as well and see if they work for you. We also discuss some of our unique experiences.
