When things have been going well for awhile in addiction recovery and betrayal trauma healing, there can be a temptation to relax the boundaries we've agreed to. This can also seem like a viable option when things are continuing to fall apart in the relationship. In either situation, experience tells us that the BEST chance your marriage has is within the safety and growth of BOUNDARIES. In this episode, Mark and Steve get into some of the more subtle and advanced nuances of boundaries—- Boundaries are often like “sand castles”--clear and strong at first, but then when the waves come crashing in they can quickly erode. - Beware the “subtle ruts” that can creep into your boundaries.- Should boundaries “evolve”? And how is this different from them simply being worn down or decaying?- Boundaries should be serving you—not you serving your boundaries!- Why are even seemingly “small” boundary enforcements important to recovery, healing and your marriage relationship?Assignment:  Do an honest, open “Boundary Assessment.”Find out more about Steve Moore at:  Ascension CounselingLearn more about Mark Kastleman at:  Reclaim Counseling ServicesLearn why his porn addiction and the Betrayal Trauma it brings is NOT YOUR FAULT—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/his-porn-addiction-not-your-faultFind out HOW Porn use can easily turn into a "Drug Addiction?—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/is-pornography-a-drug-addictionIs there a difference between "true intimacy" and "sex"?—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/true-intimacy-vs-sex-in-marriageHow can you "heal" your marriage relationship?—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/how-to-mend-your-marriage
We live in a culture that can easily tend to make physical/sexual attraction the "be all, end all," in marriage relationships. In this episode, Mark and Steve share their own raw and real marriage experiences in relation to this poignant and difficult topic:Sexual passion/attraction is a force that "acts upon us." On the other hand, "Love" is a force we "choose to act within." What is "Attraction"? What is it based upon? Can it change?We each have an "Arousal Template" which is both physically and chemically driven. This template is largely programmed into us by our upbringing, media, culture, peers, porn, etc. BUT, we are NOT trapped in the same unchanging template--it CAN change, evolve and mature.  HOW can we begin to develop and enjoy a "holistic attraction and passion"--the kind that LASTS and DEEPENS with time?Find out more about Steve Moore at:  Ascension CounselingLearn more about Mark Kastleman at:  Reclaim Counseling ServicesHere's an article about healing Betrayal Trauma—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/healing-betrayal-trauma-videoWant to learn more about HOW to break free from porn?—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/overcome-porn-sex-addictionWondering if your marriage can survive porn and sex addiction?

In this episode, Mark and Steve address the questions and concerns of one of the PBSE podcast listeners. As the spouse of an addict in recovery, this listener brings up the very legitimate concern—As a sexual addict in recovery, should my husband be having an "attraction and chemistry" toward other women? How can he possibly do this without crossing the line into lust, fantasy, relapse and adding to the already deep and painful Betrayal Trauma I feel? Mark and Steve talk openly about HOW to separate normal, human "attraction" from "lust" and "addiction"—Where is the CEAR line? What expectations and BOUNDARIES should the spouse of a sex addict have? How does an addict honor these boundaries and keep a close watch on his true "intentions"?  Find out more about Steve Moore at:  Ascension CounselingLearn more about Mark Kastleman at:  Reclaim Counseling ServicesHere's an article about healing Betrayal Trauma—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/healing-betrayal-trauma-videoWant to learn more about HOW to break free from porn?—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/overcome-porn-sex-addictionWondering if your marriage can survive porn and sex addiction?

What happens when there is a "Pornography Addiction Relapse"? The Fallout of Relapse—For the Addict:  Hopelessness, shame, resignation, apathy, "Eeyore mode"—emotional volatility and variability. For the Spouse:  Often forced to be the absolver and confessor—she feels like she must set aside her pain to be there for him, or feel like she is insensitive for taking care of her own needs. For the Couple:  Often left feeling hopeless, exhausted and less motivated/energized to recommit and try again. Breaking the Cycle of Relapse—For the Addict:  Showing up from a place of proactivity, accountability and transparency. Learning "shame resiliency." NOT waiting to be asked about relapse; reaching out to people other than a spouse for support; rather than just saying "I'm sorry" to a spouse, present and then ACT on a plan to move forward. For the Spouse:  Setting and enforcing boundaries; taking personal space as needed; detaching with love; reaching out to your own support system (other than your husband).For the Couple:  Meeting in the middle; making "sincere" amends; collaboration on a plan going forward to prevent future relapses.  Find out more about Steve Moore at:  Ascension CounselingLearn more about Mark Kastleman at:  Reclaim Counseling ServicesHere's an article about healing Betrayal Trauma—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/healing-betrayal-trauma-videoWant to learn more about HOW to break free from porn?—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/overcome-porn-sex-addictionWondering if your marriage can survive porn and sex addiction?

Addiction and Betrayal Trauma can easily plunge us into the "Victim Trap"! In this dark place, it is nearly impossible to progress on our paths of recovery and healing.

Two of the BIG questions we hear a LOT from recovering porn/sex addicts is:  "How do I get her to trust me again?" and "How do I trust her?" In this episode Mark and Steve get raw and practical about the answers to these critical questions—How do I regain her trust?The basis for your spouse trusting you again involves YOU developing consistency in several areas of recovery—not just sobriety. There is NO way to MAKE her trust you, so QUIT pressuring her! "Neediness" will NEVER develop trust!Your wife needs you to be a SUPPORT in her healing—learn how. Be accountable for YOUR role in her PAIN. How do I trust her?Validating your own pain and shame is a CRUCIAL first step. You have to LET GO of the "shoulds" about how and when to trust. Let go of any lingering responsibility for her recovery, trauma responses, future choices, etc. In some respects, the LESS you need the relationship, the MORE you will be able to trust it. Work on your own healing—knowing YOU will be OK regardless of what she decides, will allow YOU to show up in the relationship again. Trust is a CHOICE. At the end of the day, only YOU can make that decision.  Find out more about Steve Moore at:  Ascension CounselingLearn more about Mark Kastleman at:  Reclaim Counseling ServicesWondering if your marriage can survive porn and sex addiction?

For any relationship to last and thrive, there must be "boundaries." This is especially true when you're dealing with Porn Addiction and Betrayal Trauma! In this episode, Mark and Steve talk raw and open about "boundaries in the marriage relationship"—If we love each other, why do we need boundaries? Love shouldn't be restricted-right?

In this episode, Mark and Steve address an issue submitted by a PBSE listener— Hi Guys!  My husband loves your podcast.  It's the only he will listen to openly.  I loved your topic today "Healthy Sex vs. Toxic Sex in Marriage."  You talked about lust and I found that topic to be very relatable.  Is it possible to discuss how lusting can cause issues in a marriage?  From the partner's perspective, it's broken down my trust in him and his motivations.  I recoil from his touch because I don't know if I am triggering the "beast".  His hyper-sexual needs have led me to be disgusted by his touch and causes me to want to avoid both it and him.If your marriage relationship is filled with too much "lust-based-sex," aka, "The Beast"—learn HOW to move into the beautiful and amazing realm of REAL INTIMACY!
