What an honest description of the spin cycle from a woman who discovered her husband’s porn addiction!

So often, one of the hardest consequences of his porn addiction betrayal is the spin cycle.

Is it possible to stop the spin cycle?

Here are five steps to stop the spin.

  1. Grab your journal and write down every question.

When I coach clients through this process, I remind them that the spin cycle isn’t a one-and-done.

You don’t have to ride that merry-go-round just because it starts to spin.

I choose to:

  • immerse myself in the Bible, so I know who God is
  • construct healthy, protective boundaries
  • practice proper self-care
  • nurture life-giving relationships
  • live authentically with Dave

What does this mean?

The Truth of God’s Word

Healthy Boundaries

Self-Care

Wise Friend Selection

Live Authentically

What questions do you have that you are afraid to ask?
