When you get cheated on, it can feel like it’s the worst feeling in the world. It can feel like a gunshot straight to the heart with minimal chance of survival. There’s just a level of pain that comes with such a betrayal that is almost unbearable. You develop a really strong trust and bond with another person – and all of it blows up right in your face. It might be so traumatic to even cause some people to cease on their beliefs in love and romance.
And the sad truth is that many of us have been unfortunate enough to have paid witness to infidelity in our lifetimes. An even sadder truth is that unfaithfulness is going to continue to exist so as long as people get into the relationships. There are just some people out there who are wired to cheat, sad to say. It’s even becoming more and more common for young people who have adopted very noncommittal lifestyles and personalities.
