I know you feel locked out right now with no sense of how to build a bridge of trust again with your husband. Although it may be very difficult for both of you, you need to be able to talk through the meaning and feeling of the affair so that your partner can understand what that affair has meant for you. With the help of a therapist you can be open about what it felt like, what it showed you about your relationship, and how it affected you. Giving this information allows your partner to fully get into what it was like for you. Your actions may not have been right, but there are reasons that you had this affair. Go gently through this, looking to understand how the reasons and the circumstances came together, which will provide understanding and empathy about the current situation, and also empower you both to make sure that the reasons and circumstances do not come together in that way again. You also need help him know, on a truly emotional level, that you are so deeply sorry. Recovering a relationship after an infidelity is a difficult process. The good news is that recovery and reconnection can happen, strengthening and deepening your relationship in the process.
