Welcome to the site you never thought you would visit. I'm glad you're finding others that understand how unwanted sexual addiction, intimacy anorexia and/or sexual abuse has impacted every area of your life.
Tea Time was birthed from Erin's personal experiences.
You are not alone!
Do you struggle knowing how you feel? Have you become hyper focused on the abuse and/or betrayal that your spouse would interpret your behavior as controlling? When infact it's more likely your seeking a sense of safety in all aspects of your life. Erin learned her life was out of balance and design when she sought safety in her husband first and God second. At Tea Time, Erin will walk along side you as you learn ways to put your trust in the one that never fails.
Here's a list of common betrayal trauma reactions partners experience after discovery. While reading through them, ask yourself if your mind, body and spirit are seeking control or safety?
Emotional reactions since the discovery?
Physical reactions since discovery?
Cognitive reactions since discovery?
Behavioral reactions since discovery?
Existential reactions since discovery?
Erin felt there was a before-discovery self and an after discovery self. Like all partners, Erin had to mourn what she thought her life was and what her future may look like while learning healthier behaviors to feel safe-regardless if her husband chose recovery. When you have a firm foundation nothing is impossible.
Betrayal was something that happened to you, it's NOT who you are.
At Tea Time Ministry you can expect authentic and confidential conversations. Workgroups and sessions can be done individually or in group settings. Erin will walk along side you to help you put trust in the one that never fails, that never leaves you or forsakes you. You can have a firm foundation but it starts when you take focus off of your circumstances and look to Christ who abundantly provides all you need. You can heal in mind, body, and spirit and stand on an unshakable firm foundation.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you or forsake you."
Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house; and yet it did not fall, for its foundation had been built on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.
