My H & I are in rebuilding and had a really good week last week. All was fine until his sister's H walked out on her Saturday with no explanation. Could be an A, we dont' know for sure at this point.
My question is, how do I help somebody so close to me through this without losing my mind! Both my H & I have really been bummed about this news because it brings the anger back to me about how my BIL treated my SIL, and my H has to hear his sister describe just how badly her heart is broken. It's like reliving the stuff we've already healed from. I'm just getting back to some kind of normalcy, and I feel like I'm spiraling back into depression. I want to help her, it's just I feel like I'm going back through all the emotions (shock/hurt, etc.) with her that I've gotten some control over. I know I can't punish my H because of my BILs mistakes, but it's just hard to not be angry and take it out on all men at this point!
Thanks for any advice.
