Infidelity Hurts... It is Time to Speak Up and Speak Out

Posted on September 17, 2015 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)


The 2nd Annual Infidelity SPeaKS Awareness Day


In preparation for the 2nd Annual Infidelity SPeaKS Awareness Day, I pondered the thought… should I continue the fight? Will infidelity always exist? Am I fighting a worthless cause? Will my voice matter? Is infidelity really a big deal or simply normalized behavior?


I began to think about my darkest days as a result of infidelity and the many others who suffer in silence. I remembered the days of shame, loneliness, judgement, and feeling invisible. Infidelity hurts! I was reminded of my “why” behind the fight. No, I am not staying quiet about infidelity. I am going to find my voice, own my truth, and continue to bring attention to what I consider an epidemic. Will you join the fight?


The 2nd Annual Infidelity SPeaKS Awareness Day will be held on May 27-28, 2016. This event is dedicated to betrayed individuals that are on the healing journey. Stay tuned for more information about ways that you can show support to the Infidelity SPeaKS community. Please visit www.infidelityspeaks.org for more information.

Happily Ever After

Posted on July 27, 2015 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (1)

What does it mean to be happy and how can one live happily ever after when the tragedy of infidelity hits? About 8 years ago I remember standing at the alter making the commitment to love my husband to death do us part. What I thought would be forever didn’t last forever and I was left with the thought of what happens when forever doesn’t last forever? Many days I experienced confusion and I couldn’t find peace anywhere. I signed up for a forgiveness diet and forgave (so I thought). I wrestled to find peace but I couldn’t get beyond the idea that I spent many moments, and I mean many moments obsessed with the idea that I was cheated on, I am divorced, and I am a single mom.


I considered myself a strong individual and typically could fight through anything but infidelity and the end of my marriage took a different toll on me and I remained stuck for a long time. My ideal definition of Happily Ever After was to get married, have three children, the brick home with the white picket fence and a cute dog. I didn’t have a plan B. Infidelity and divorce was the end to my happily ever after.


I decided to go on a personal healing and clarity journey. I no longer wanted answers, but I simply wanted a better life for myself. What I concluded is I needed a different perspective of happily ever after. I needed to recreate and reinvent! What is your happily ever after? I was challenged to find a new beginning, a fresh start. I needed to build a stronger foundation for my life. My happily ever after meant living out loud! What is y our happily ever after?



 

 

Imagine

Posted on June 30, 2015 at 7:45 PM Comments comments (12)

Imagine infidelity taking residence in your home. Imagine losing everything you have lived for due to the intensity of pain that the betrayal of infidelity has caused. Imagine having to face your partner each and every day as you fight to work through your relationship.


Imagine questioning your own existence because the impact of infidelity has left you lifeless and you have been robbed of everything you have ever lived for. Your hopes, dreams, and your happily-ever-after has been tainted. Imagine lying in the middle of the floor broken with no zeal for life- it hurts to breathe and no one can understand the intensity of pain that you are experiencing. Imagine the feeling of being lost, alone, and confused.


Now… Imagine finding the courage to grab on to strength, putting one foot in front of the other as you cling on to your personal power declaring that you will fight for your life! Imagine reinventing your life and starting anew as you release the past and live in the present. Imagine finding your self-worth, self-esteem, and having the courage to paint your life beautiful. Infidelity is a part of your story but it doesn’t have to be the end of your story.


Imagine having a voice and speaking out against infidelity. What if monogamy was no longer a foreign concept and morals and values meant something? Imagine raising the bar, removing the excuses of infidelity, and saying enough is enough! As you imagine, ponder the following questions. How can I make a difference in the pursuit of fidelity? What would it take for me to find my voice and join the fight against infidelity?

I want to extend a note of thanks to the Infidelity SPeaKS community. Due to my personal experience with infidelity, I had a strong desire to bring awareness to this behavior. I wanted to make a difference in the world of infidelity, and with your support, the impact was bigger than I could have ever imagined. Infidelity SPeaKS Awareness Day received nationwide attention and I could not have done this without you!


Thank you for believing in my mission and sharing in my vision. Plans are already being made for next year and my hope is that you will be able to join me for the 2nd Annual Infidelity SPeaKS Awareness Day in Washington, D.C. (tentatively planned for May 27-28, 2016).

Together We Can

Posted on May 31, 2015 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

“Hope, Courage, Forgiveness, Vision, and a New Tomorrow.”


Yesterday marked a significant day in the world of infidelity and I have yet to digest it all! I am still amazed by the countless emails I received and the overall support. Thanks to everyone that had the courage to share their stories as you are my inspiration and I will continue to speak out. I also want to thank the individuals that may not have been directly impacted by infidelity but provided support and encouragement. Thank you to everyone who supported the mission by wearing yellow and participating in the movement via social media. Together we can!


Yesterday, the yellow ribbon, symbolizing hope, courage, forgiveness, vision, and a new tomorrow, was cut and launched the first Annual Infidelity SPeaKS Awareness Day; however, this is just the beginning of the work that has to be done. Are you ready?


Together we can create a powerful force and just as our music, social media, television shows, and movies have the power to promote the acceptance of infidelity, we have the same power to send a different message. Remember, impossible is just a word. Together we can bring awareness to this devastating behavior. Together we can provide hope and support while individuals are rebuilding their lives and relationships. Together we can create a new normal.


To the many who sent messages of their desire to attend the event but receiving information too late to make travel arrangements, please know that plans are already underway for next year’s event. Make sure you are on the mailing list to receive all updates, and again, thanks for being a part of Infidelity SPeaKS.


 

Hope… Courage… Forgiveness… Vision… A New Tomorrow

2 More Days to Go: What is the Solution?

Posted on May 28, 2015 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

2 more days to go and I am excited about the passion that the Infidelity SPeaKS community has expressed leading up to the launch of Infidelity SPeaKS. I was left with this question to ponder, “What is the solution to infidelity?” I must admit I don’t have an answer and I truly wish that I could wave a magic wand to make this behavior disappear, but this is far from reality.


I don’t have all the answers surrounding the topic of infidelity, but I do know that infidelity is hitting the home of many, and in my opinion, it is an epidemic. I do know that the statistics of infidelity are on the rise and with the help of the digital world – it has gone bananas. Must I add that Washington, D.C., the Nation’s Capital, ranked #1 for the top cities of infidelity.


What is the solution? I don’t know if there is one solution that will put an end to infidelity or even one solution that would work for the many faces of infidelity, but I do know hope goes a long way and sometimes that is the only thing we have to hold on to. For me, there was hope and then came the desire to simply bring awareness to the behavior and effects of infidelity. What is the solution? I don’t know if there is a solution that will put an end to infidelity, but changing the world starts with a vision and the vision of Infidelity SPeaKS is as follows:(


• Bring awareness to the topic of infidelity and the resulting impact on individuals and families.

• Support individuals impacted by infidelity by offering encouragement in the healing process as one rebuilds their marriage, or provide coping measures for individuals that must start anew after divorce resulting from infidelity.

• Open and promote healthy dialogue regarding the causes, effects, and prevention of infidelity.

• Identify resources and create a safe space for the betrayed to connect, communicate, and share.

 


What is your vision for infidelity and what do you think is the solution to infidelity?

 


I invite you to join me on May 30, 2015 for the first Infidelity SPeaKS Awareness Day. We have to start from somewhere right? Together we will cut the yellow ribbon symbolizing hope, courage, forgiveness, vision, and a new tomorrow!
