I Can't Get Over My Anger From My Husband's Long Term Affair
My husband worked with a lady in our business. I quit my job to join him in our venture together. Shortly after I started I found out and watched my husband and an employee have an emotional affair. I begged him to fire her, he would not.
My children begged him to get rid of her and he would not. I waited like a fool hoping he would "choose me over her". After 3 years he acted like he fired her. They did this so they could have full blown affair.
I caught them 4 years later. I am so angry, bitter and resentful! I want to tell her spouse and children and ruin her life like she did ours. I have held back but it's been a living hell for a year now.
I am obsessed with the thoughts of "them". I lash out in anger and check up on him and her. I don't trust our employees because they watched, but acted like nothing was going on.
It's been a nightmare. I feel horrible hatred for all of them. My counselor suggested I may have rage addiction. After 7 years perhaps I do. I want so bad to get over this and move on.
