Husband's cheating killing me everyday but not able to separate for my child

Asked by Female, 31, Married
Married for 5 years with a daughter aged 2 years. Husband works in a bank. It was a love marriage. 6 months ago I started having doubt that my hubby is having an affair. First he denied but then accepted that he was seeing this girl, it just broke me. I almost decided to move out but he cried a lot and said I'm breaking all connections with that girl. I stayed back but its killing me everyday. I don't want to see his face. I don't want him to touch me. I want to see him hurt. I'm going crazy and having mad thoughts of revenge but then I think about my child and other things and don't do anything. I don't know what do I do? Please help. I can’t live with this pain.

Hi Writer, thank you for reaching out to us. I'm sure it's not easy to talk about what you've been going through. I'm sure it's been very emotionally hurtful to you and makes it very difficult to trust your husband again. Are you struggling more with trust or hurt by his betrayal and therefore feel the need to do something hurtful to him as well?
