Cheating on a person/ partner is like throwing away a diamond and picking up a rock, and cheating is always a choice. It’s never a mistake. Cheating isn’t always physical, If you have to delete text messages or DMs so that your partner won’t see them, you might already be there because apologies don’t mean anything if you keep doing what you said were sorry for, and if you feel that someone has stolen your partner, the best thing you can do is let them keep them because, remember, a true partner can never be stolen.
Alcohol is not an excuse to cheat. Distance is not an excuse to cheat. Sickness is not an excuse to cheat. Drugs is not excuse to cheat. Financial issue is not an excuse to cheat, College is not an excuse to cheat, Temptation is not an excuse to cheat because the truth is, when you cheat on someone, they don’t start to question you. They often start to question themselves. People start to Question their physical appearance. They start to think about all their flaws. They start to amplify and magnify anything about them that they feel may be the reason you cheated. So even though your reason is completely about how you feel, they think it’s about how they are, and people sometimes even go further. They start to question their choices. They start to question their decisions. They start to question the person that they are becoming, all because of one lie or one mistake or one moment that someone decided to cheat on them.
There are three rules in relationships. Don’t lie, Dont Cheat, and Don’t make promises you can’t Keep.
