It seems to me that as human beings we are always looking for something more. Not just in school or work, but within our relationships with other people. Why can’t we cherish something and give that the relationship the love it deserves? Why can’t we be happy with what we have? And, if we are unhappy, why don’t we go about things in a way that won’t hurt another person so much.
What I am talking about I guess, is cheating. Why do we cheat? I understand that sometimes you meet someone and fall for them while you’re with someone else. I understand that you might not love the same person forever. But why do some people feel the need to hide and go behind their partners backs and pretend they don’t exist for a little while. Surely, honesty is the best policy?
Joe and I have an agreement. If either of us are unhappy in the relationship, we’ll end it rather than continuing the pain and unhappiness. If we meet someone else, we’ll leave. We won’t cheat. I’ve been cheated on, and it’s possibly the worst feeling in the world. To feel as though you’re not enough. Why do people put others through that? It can’t just be me that doesn’t understand this?
Now, I know a lot of people will say that it’s not always that simple. Sometimes cheating is the best way. I know there are other reasons and factors that lead people to make these choices, some of which may fall into the “it’s best” category, but on the whole, I just don’t see the point in it. I don’t understand it.
If you have feelings for someone else and you want to be with them instead of the person you’re with, then leave. It’s not fair on any of the people involved for it to continue in secrecy. Be happy, and be honest.
I mean, we all want to be happy and loved, right?
