Still talking with the soldier about cheating… (Why Do People Cheat?)
“So did she cheat on you or what?” I asked.
“Well I never caught her but yeah. I’m pretty sure she did. Enough people told me that was what was going on. I am pretty sure she slept with everyone she could possibly sleep with… and I mean everyone. Yeah, she cheated.”
“And it took me a long time to finally get this. To understand when someone cheats it’s no reflection on the person being cheated on. None at all. It’s not their character… the cheated on person gets to keep their character.”
“You had to learn that?”
“Oh. Because that is something I have always known.”
“Good, P, but yeah. I had to learn that and it didn’t come easy. Took a long time but I did figure it out eventually and you know. She can do whatever she wants. I can’t stop her. How am I going to stop her? If she wants to sleep around, let her sleep with whoever. But eventually I did leave her. She got left and I didn’t miss her that’s for sure. I was very glad to close that chapter of my life. It was a relief.”
Do you know that when someone cheats it is no reflection on the person being cheated on?
