Are you seeking to free yourself from other people’s thoughts about your infidelity? If you’re having an affair, other people may cast a blanket of disapproval over your situation — and that can cause you to start forming the same negative opinions. But, do you really want to give someone that power over your beliefs and feelings?

According to Dr. Marie Murphy, it’s common for people to seek approval from others about their decisions. But it doesn’t have to be that way. As Dr. Murphy says, you get to decide what you believe about yourself and your situation. Once you learn to trust your own opinions and embrace the nuances of your beliefs, you can decide whether or not you agree with other people’s opinions.

In this episode of Your Secret is Safe With Me, Dr. Marie Murphy talks about the value of cultivating your own beliefs about yourself and your situation. Listen in as Dr. Murphy shares her advice for forming a sustainable view of yourself, overcoming the fear of other people’s opinions about infidelity, and freeing yourself from the negative thoughts of others. Stay tuned.
