Too much guilt is not healthy and increases the odds of acting out again. Come to terms with life and take responsibility for your behavior and your part in the affair.

Top Notch Couples CDs
"Top Notch Couples: The Best You"
Don created this one after hearing multiple people ask what daily practice he does and what he does to keep his own life on track. With tracks like "Building appreciation" "Letting Go" "Passion EFT Affirmations" and "Daily Practice" listeners will experience how to be the best them. If you are going through the separation and divorce process, you might be especially interested in the "Letting go" tracks and "Putting Closure on Your Marriage." Bombard yourself with positive thoughts and stay focused on what is important in your life.
"Top Notch Couples: Relaxation"
We can talk about relaxation or we can experience it. In his sessions, Don often utilizes a biofeedback system, that helps measure just how relaxed people can get. He trains them to have control over their responses and empowers them to take back their lives. This CD helps you experience a less stressed way of being.
"Top Notch Couples: Manage Anger"
Filled with ideas for managing feelings in general and anger specifically, this CD is very practical. When you have the ability to feel the feeling and continue interacting, knowing that you are in control, you have what Daniel Goleman calls "Emotional Intelligence." This is not just for people who have an anger problem, it is for anyone wanting to manage emotions better. People going through separation and divorce find that their buttons are consistently being pushed, intentionally or not. This is very practical for not being emotionally reactive.
"Top Notch Couples: Practice Anger Management"
Don created this CD for people who do not like to read to learn and for people who would like to practice their skills in real life, when they are angry and not just when they are calm and reading a book. It is a good companion to the "Manage Anger" CD. The CD can be purchased directly from Don or on Amazon.com.
