The hardest part of ending an affair is giving a sincere apology. That means taking full responsibility and being accountable for the pain caused to everyone involved. No matter if the cheating was with multiple partners, a one night stand or a mistress, the betrayer must be willing to end the affair by allowing his/her partner listen to the phone call ending it. The impact of a phone call is better than writing a letter, e-mail or text where the former lover has the opportunity to respond and prolong the termination of the affair.
Going to counseling and therapy can provide a safe place with a non-judgmental professional qualified to help understand what went wrong so you can learn to avoid the same pitfalls in the future.
Cheating can impact a relationship positively and negatively. It can be a wake up call that something is missing or that the cheating partner feels neglected, but it can also be a destructive act to end the relationship.
Whether you choose to work towards making your relationship better or walk away depends upon if your relationship is more worth saving than the resentment is worth holding on to.
