What would you do if you found out your partner has been cheating on you?
For me – I can tell you that I already know how that feels. The feeling of betrayal. The feeling of disbelief. Anger and hurt are not the only emotions that will overpower you. You may start questioning your whole relationship, the sincerity of the love and your capability of making a good judgement.
One of the first things you will accuse yourself of, is being so stupid. “How did I not see this?” you will ask yourself. “Why did my partner do this?” will be the next question you need answers to. “Was I not enough for you?” is what you would really like to know.
Your self-doubt will cripple your thinking. Your second-guessing of their love for you will drive you crazy. These are all natural emotions we feel when we are shocked. But when the shock wears off, and when you gain some strength, you will learn the lesson you needed to learn through this painful experience, that yes – you didn’t deserve. But it happened.
So learn what was necessary for you to learn and you will be okay. The best thing for you is to turn the painful experience into a valuable lesson and carry on your journey.
How would you handle this? What would you do?
