    Will I Ever Recover?

    I ruined my marriage because I have serious self-esteem issues. I had an emotional affair with an ex right after I got married, and my husband found out. After having some space from what happened, I know now that I was unhappy with myself and was looking for outside validation...

    Firstly I'm not married.

    Second, I'm not sure if there is something wrong with me, or my relationship. I ask kindly for your input. I have been looking at myself after any kind of tiff, argument, or anytime I felt my blood pressure go up. The first this I realize looking back is, I get mad too easily...
