Moving On And Getting Over
Cheating is a major sin in every kind of relationship. The trust, the time, and the love you have invested in making the relationship work sometimes make you think twice about leaving your partner. Remember, you don’t need to stay just because you feel bad for those wasted years.
Move on with your life. After forgiving your partner with this misdeed, you also have to forgive yourself. Do not harbor any bitterness on both sides because sometimes it just has to happen so that both of you can realize the importance of a commitment and of one’s self.
Forgive is only seven letters, two syllables, but it’s very difficult to say. Most especially when you are the grieving party. In time, you will understand why it has to happen.
