In the video above I discuss infidelity and stepping out on your partner while pretending to be in a solid partnership.
Being blindsided by someone who you thought was loyal can destroy trust for many years to come. If you’re not invested in your relationship then have the courage to remove yourself before you bring someone else into the mix.

This becomes a dangerous territory and hard to remove yourself from. The forbidden fruit of life’s temptations! The devil on one shoulder and the angel on the other. We have all been there even though we see those red flags waving furiously in the wind!
But we ignore them…
