Are you in a relationship where you feel like you are giving one hundred percent and he is only giving fifty? That is probably because he is giving another woman that other fifty. Infidelity is one of the major cause of problems in relationships. There is a tendency for both of the sexes to cheat and when there is no trust in a relationship it is destined for failure.
As a woman how do you deal with the fact that your partner is cheating on you? Do you confront him, make him know you won’t stand for it, give him an ultimatum wherein he had to choose you or go out the door? Or are you so afraid you might lose him that you turn a blind eye, suffer silently and tell yourself that you would rather share him than lose him? The fact is if you are sharing him with someone else you are half-way on the road to losing him anyway. What is the point in prolonging your unhappiness?
You might be so afraid of losing him that you try to convince yourself that you can deal with it. But why lie to yourself? You lie awake at night wondering where he is, who he is with and what he is doing. You want to feel his arms about you but the space beside you is empty and you know in your heart that he is with someone else. You cry yourself to sleep knowing you have to let him go but not having the courage to do it.
Women often feel they need a man even when that man turns out to be a source of unhappiness. The truth is you don’t need someone in your life who is making you unhappy. You cannot rely on someone else to make you happy. You are the author and creator of your happiness. You cannot leave it in someone else’s hands!
If a man loves, respect and cares about his woman, chances are he will not cheat on her. If he does not love, care for and respect you then you need to let him go. There are times in life when you have to compromise but this is not one of those times. If he is cheating on you and refuses to stop you need to show him the door because you don’t need him anymore than he needs you. You certainly do not need to put yourself at risk for STD’s especially HIV and AIDS. If you man is playing around he is not just messing with your heart, he could be messing with your life as well.
In my next post I will tell you about one woman who compromised and paid for it with her life. Be wise, stay strong , love yourself and accept nothing less than you deserve! Take control of your relationship today!
