Crying doesn’t make you weak. Especially in this situation, you trusted someone and they broke that trust. You’re probably thinking “what does she have that I don’t?” So relieve yourself of all that burden, pain and grief and just cry, cry and cry some more. It is totally Okay.
2. Take things slow.
I know you might want to retaliate or get back out there immediately. But that isn’t wise. Don’t let one experience push you to do something detrimental, so calm down. Everything you would want to do should be something you’re sure you won’t regret.
3. Talk about it.
Talk to anyone you trust. Talk about how it ended, especially when you get into a new relationships. Tell him how the other guy hurt you. Open up about how it made you feel. You should let him know, just in case you have trouble trusting him.
4. It’s okay to be Paranoid.
We are humans, of course you’ll begin to wonder what you did wrong. But at this point, does it even matter? He did what he did already. So be patient and positive. Stop focusing so hard on what went wrong, so please move your attention to something else.
5. Don’t compare.
If a great guy comes along, please don’t try to compare him with your ex. Yes they dress alike, yes they work in advertising, yes they’re from the same state. But, they are not the same person. Keep an open mind and don’t let the past ruin your future.
6. Move on.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. He only cheated on you, he didn’t kill you. So Fuck him. He would come crawling back one day but hopefully you’d be with someone better by then. Being cheated on is not the end of the world.
If your relationship ended due to the fact that the guy is a cheating bastard, I think you should be relieved. He just saved you from a lot of things; from STDs and heartbreak. Just because it didn’t work with one lousy guy only means that someone better is coming.
So cheer up, it isn’t the end of the world, believe me, I know.
I am, @Lord__Nina
