universal truth: loved ones will hurt you


A buddy just told me about his sister, how she just found out a couple of days ago that her husband had been sleeping with another woman for a whole year. She'd had no idea.


She's still, for lack of an adequate descriptor, reeling.

What do you do when this happens? What do you do when that bomb of nausea explodes inside your ribcage when you discover news like this?

Some of the responses that seem appropriate at the moment aren't real-world options, like murder, assault, arson. But all of the other responses you're left with feel so inappropriately passive — crying yourself to sleep, praying, confiding in a friend, Christian forgiveness, moving on.

She confronted him. Caught, he now wants to work things out.

What do you do.
