Counseling Journey

Here’s the story of my counseling journey.

As the CCTV footage was playing, everyone could not speak. I was holding my breath myself because I hoped that doing so would make the scene on the screen seem unreal. That time, counseling came to mind but I quickly brushed it off. I thought, “Counseling is too much.”

“I know we all saw the same thing, but perhaps there’s another explanation for it,” Elle uttered courageously.

Hearing that made me want the ground to open so I could fall into an abyss. I could not believe that behind my wife’s gorgeousness was an ugly and unacceptable habit. And neither my family nor I deserved that.

Counseling – Help Through Counseling

My wife excused herself during the commotion because she could apparently hear her phone ring. When we met her in the lobby, she still feigned concern over what happened.

Counseling Before Divorce

Counseling before anything -that was the rule.

I contacted a divorce lawyer the following day. The lawyer advised getting counseled to me. I told him I was open to counseling and that I hoped my counselor would ease my disappointments. Counseling was perhaps the solution.

The jury initially wanted us to go through marriage counseling, but I made my case clear, so they did not push counseling. I believed that as a couple, we wouldn’t benefit from counsel.

Counseling Helped Despite How It Ended

Counseling Session

It was not on my own, of course. My family supported my decision when I made it clear that I would not stand beside someone who would commit a crime against them. The amount that Joan stole was easy to earn, but my trust could forever be broken. My family went through a few sessions of it as well.

A Counselor

I also met a counselor during the divorce process. I felt myself spiraling down, and I could not really get depressed over what’s happening in my life. It helped me evaluate and organize my emotions to express them appropriately. It helped me pick up the brokenness I felt from my marriage.

In truth, this two-part blog is the result of my sessions. It did encourage me to express myself through words, but she chose to do it in any form.

Counseling Thoughts

In my case, my family welcomed the love of my life and was willing to overlook her petty theft for my sake. If you experience something remotely similar to that, choose your family over your partner because only the former cares for you.
