How does a remorseful cheater feel when he/she gets forgiven and given a 2nd chance?

Many people ask about how it feels to get cheated on and the aftermath. I'm going to now ask from the other side of the story. If a cheater is really remorseful and wants to amend things, how do they generally feel when they're forgiven and given that 2nd chance. What's it like to be in that position?

I know someone that's a remorseful, former cheater. It's been 2 years since his cheating and both are still working things out. He has even gone to church to repent. He admitted the affair himself. He didn't get caught, he confessed and has been remorseful since.

How does a remorseful cheater feel when he/she gets forgiven and given a 2nd chance?
