I’ve refocused my life on helping people. When I have two calls in one week (and it’s only Tuesday), one male and one female, asking the same question that I don’t have a legitimate answer for it’s crazy.
The question: Why do people cheat?
Like I supposed to know that when I can’t even figure my own wife cheating?
I just simply said “Some people are just assholes.”
It truth, and I hope Tony doesn’t mind that I borrow a Fastball quote, “If you’re sad then it’s time you spoke up too”
Why is it so hard for someone to say “Hey! This is broken, let’s fix it?” If you acknowledge the problem then you have two options. Fix it, or walk away. Cheating doesn’t become an issue.
And don’t give someone false hopes. If you don’t think it’s going to work tell them that. It’s easier In the long run for everyone. If you’re already cheating then it’s already over in your head. This includes anything you feel you need to hide from your mate. Harmless flirting is one thing, but when you have to go out of your way to hide the fact that you’re in an emotional affair with someone then it’s still cheating.
In short, if you aren’t happy, speak up. Don’t cheat.
Stop being an asshole.
Don’t ever let your self worth be attached to someone else’s action. If they’ve cheated it’s because something is broken it’s not you. Even if you are unbearable to live with the other person has options. Cheating should never be one.
