Emotional and Sexual Betrayal
When love is mutual and you and your partner
are surrendered to each other emotionally,
sex is uplifting and sacred.
But when communication in your relationship
becomes careless and shoddy,
when time is not taken for one-to-one intimacy,
your relationship becomes a shell
in which you both hide.
Energy and commitment disappear from your union,
and sex becomes an act of physical betrayal.
It is not surprising then that one or both of you
may look outside the relationship for satisfaction.
Infidelity is a symptom of your emotional disconnection
from each other.
Unfortunately, it involves another person in the dynamics
and makes it more difficult
for healing and reconciliation to take place.
