that you give yourself space to reflect on the situation
instead of instantly forgiving the other person.
When you jump back into it without time to look deep within,
you may be asking for it to occur again or you may be hiding from the root cause for the cheating.
Take the time you need to see if you still really want that person, want to leave the relationship or you may need a period of seperation.
If the person really loves you, then they will not try to pressure you into getting back together immediately.
