Did you really have to cheat?
Why is being faithful to someone such a hard and complicated task? People can come up with several dozen reasons on why they cheated but very few seem to be able to explain why they chose to cheat instead of just leaving the relationship. Those that can explain when pressed, can generally only come up with selfish reasons for their infidelity. They always had the choice to leave instead of cheating and hurting the one they “love” yet their choice was to cheat.
Is the rise in divorce and broken homes the result of our lack luster approach to relationships? Everyone seems to go into a relationship with an exit strategy. Even before the I dos are done and the ink is dry on the marriage certificate one or both partners have already laid out how they plan to “be okay” if this does not work out. No one seems to be really in it for the long haul. Relationships are work, marriages are hard work and you have to be committed to work through the pitfalls and the rainy days in order to appreciate the sunshine and drank the lemonade.
We must learn that cheating shows that you no longer respect are value the relationship that we are in. If you know in your heart that you are not going to be faithful, then be honest with yourself and the person that you are with and don’t bamboozle them into thinking that you will be. There are way too many people that share your same lack of commitment that you can go hook up with. Furthermore, there are too many diseases and crazy people in the world for you to be so reckless and selfish that you would put someone that has placed their heart in your hands at risk for what usually amounts to a worthless ass booty call.
