I 've Been In Love And Betrayed

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17,799 People

    It's been 7 years. She cheated.

    I forgave. She left. Since then I've come to know that she was cheating all our married life. I don't love her anymore. In fact, I rarely think of her, and I've grown to the point where I wish her no harm and have no ill will. However, I do wonder if I'll ever truly be in love...

    Don't get I to a relationship

    if you can't give it your all. Your absolute 100%. Relationships take work. There must be love, trust, honesty, faith, understanding, and loyalty. If you can't do any of that, you're setting yourself up for failure and to hurt the other person.

    Love can be strange, Love can be rough,

    When you get in range, It can be enough. Love is to feel, Love is for the heart, When it's surreal, Two will never part.

    If you're afraid to be hurt again,

    then you're afraid to be loved again. Don't let hearts that didn't love you, keep you from the one that will.

    After 3 years, he cheated on me in Afghanistan.

    I gave him everything. And he cheated on me. Not just like a one night stand type of thing...he told everyone we were broken up and was dating a girl in his unit in Afghanistan for about 3 months. It truly broke my heart. That was the last time I was going to give him a second...

    It sucks when you miss

    that person so much that you look through old photos, old text messages, even old statuses. And it brings a smile to your face, but then the hurt comes back and you know you shouldn't be looking back, but you can't help it because they really meant something to you and you...

    I found this recently

    and want to share. I did not write it--I can't remember who did: " If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth."

    because my life was such a disaster at the time. But I hired a dog walker who turned into my girlfriend who turned into my wife. She was a single mom so I became a father in the deal. I felt so much love I could barely believe it. Then she betrayed me in every way possible. But...

    I am in love with you.

    But you are no longer in love with me. Yeah, sure you say you love me. But you don't. Haven't been for most of our marriage. Why did you marry me? Why did you have to be with her? You messed everything up- not me- so why am I the one hurting?
