This is a question about my H actually. We are 2 1/2 months into the recovery process. I had an affair that lasted 8 months. My H isn't the type of person who reaches out for help from people. He internalizes a lot of his feelings and doesn't cope with things by talking about them. Therefore, when this situation gets the best of him and becomes so overwhelming that he can't deal with it, he explodes. He becomes so incredibly sad and upset. I know this is completely normal and will continue for quite some time. But I am wondering if any of you in his position can suggest things I can do to help him when this happens. I want to hold him and soothe him but I wonder if he needs space from me at that time? If anyone has any advice on how I can better care for my H when he is in the darkest parts of this process, I would really appreciate it.
