To be in a committed relationship or marriage takes hard work. This means you must be willing to put in the effort to make it work.
In today’s world, being faithful to your partner is outdated and being unfaithful is the new thing.
I could never understand why people cheat on each other. Can someone please tell me why it is so hard for people to be faithful and honest? Why can’t they just tell each other what is lacking in their relationships and what they expect from each other going forward?
To me, being open and honest about how you feel about certain things is the key to a successful relationship or marriage. Whether it’s the sex that is getting boring, your partner’s personal hygiene that is becoming unbearable, the way your partner makes you feel when you together or apart or even how your partner treats you in public and in private.
The problems always seem to start when we hide things from one another and when we hide how we feel.
When there are underlying issues in our relationships that are not dealt with, our eyes start to wander and this is when cheating starts.
One might meet someone and this person has some of the qualities that your current partner or spouse lacks and immediately you become attracted to that person. The problem is, when you cheat and your partner finds out, you stand to lose someone that you really love and the chances are that you might never find a person like your current partner again.
People normally go after the 20% because it looks so attractive at that moment and it is easy to get but ends up losing 80% of what they already have and that my dear friends is the saddest part of it all.
Instead of speaking to each other, being open and honest with one another about things you end up ruining and losing everything you have worked so hard for in the years that you have been together. And we all know that once a relationship is ruined it’s hard to pick up the pieces and put it back together again so you end things to make it easier.
Always remember that being honest is everything, even if it hurts.
Stay true to yourself.
