Marriage is tough, and it doesn’t help when your husband decides to cheat on you. So what do you do when “happily ever after” blows up in your face? For me, I decided to break the cycle of silence and share my awkward story of infidelity, separation and making marriage work after betrayal. Join me each week as I explore the pain and pleasure of second chances. It’s time to WAKE UP or BREAK UP!Note from the host: The stories shared on this podcast are real, and the outcomes will vary from person to person. I’m not here you give you the magic formula to fix broken relationships (I don’t know if one exists). I’m here to encourage you to seek support (socially, emotionally, psychologically), to deeply explore your thoughts and emotions, and to find meaningful ways to process and move forward from your experience. Healing and forgiveness take time, and they are not always complete. Be patient with yourself and your process. Good luck beautiful listener! ❤️

    Better together: Part 3 of 3

    Better together: Part 3 of 3

    In the final installment of this 3 part series, I sit down with Marcel and Alicia to get the low down on how they repaired their marriage and learned more about themselves in the process.  Forgiveness after infidelity may not work for every relationship, but for this couple,  it brought them closer together. 

    Out of respect for his marriage, Marcel is no longer on social media, but you can follow Alicia on Instagram: @alicia_maria83

    Alicia shares her side of the story: Part 1 of 3

    I strongly believe, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger," and the same can be said for my beautiful guest Alicia.  She is a mom of 3 teenagers, overcame infidelity after 18 years of marriage, and is a breast cancer survivor.  

    In part 1 of this unexpected 3 part series, Alicia shares her journey of falling in love, motherhood, cancer, and forgiveness after infidelity. In part 2, we'll hear her husband's side of the story. And in part 3, I'll sit down with the both of them and get the real deal of how they kept their marriage together. 

    Their story is beyond powerful! I hope you tune in to all 3 parts!

Epic podcast about cheating, love and what will happen

Elsie takes you through a journey of self discovery to which she shares her story of being cheated on and then taking her husband back. It’s crazy to think but she goes in-depth in her own mind as well the reason to why her husband cheated and why they didn’t workout. It’s a completely different perspective of all the other relationship podcasts out there. And did I mention that she’s a life coach who’s here to help you out??? Go subscribe and listen!
