In this web story, we will share some insights and tips from the book Worthy of Her Trust by Stephen Arterburn and Jason B. Martinkus, who have both experienced and overcome sexual addiction and infidelity.
Transparency is the foundation of trust. It means being open and honest about everything, especially about your struggles and temptations. Transparency also means being accountable to your spouse and to others who can help you stay on track.
Restitution is the process of making amends for the harm you have caused. It means acknowledging the pain and loss your spouse has experienced, and expressing genuine remorse and empathy. It also means taking action to repair the damage and restore the relationship.
Consistency is the key to maintaining trust. It means being faithful and dependable in your words and actions, over time and in different situations. Consistency also means being persistent and resilient in your recovery, and not giving up when you face challenges or setbacks.
