Stressed about a difficult family situation
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

So I found out that my father is cheating on my mother. I have been quite about it for awhile. I really cannot talk about it because I don't think my mother will take it well. Her life kind of completely depends on him and us and if I just take that away, she will be completely shattered. I am aware that there right thing to do is confront but I really don't have the courage to do that. All my life I have looked up to my father - he has been the ideal father and even a good husband. Our family is in a good place if I just ignore the fact that he is cheating. I know I am being selfish but I really don't know what to do and how to go ahead with things.
