Thank you to everyone who shared their story with me.
Being cheated on is a special kind of pain… it is one of the most painful forms in my opinion. It is betrayal on so many levels: deceit, abandonment, rejection, humiliation— all the things your partner was supposed to protect you from.
I would never wish this kind of pain upon anyone, not even to the person who caused it. No one should have to experience the depth of this ache, but if you have or are currently dealing with this trauma, I can promise you that it will change you in the best ways, when you are ready for it… and if you actively choose to let it.
