I would like to share my experience as wife of more than 20 years. Others might have gone through the same experience, might have wished to burn their husband?s mistress alive.
Because of this mistress, my family broke up and we never had the chance to reconcile. She knows it is wrong but she continued to do what was wrong. Wouldn?t it be poetic justice if, when she too is married, her husband would cheat on her?
Before our separation, my husband had always compared me to his lover who made him feel young, happy and carefree, while I was old, boring. He?d nitpick and start a fight with me. Because of this, I chose to move on, rather than hang on to him who chose his lover over us, his family who continued to have miserable lives.
I?ve already lived through sham and hypocrisy. Was I right to let him go? Should I give myself a chance, find a new chapter of life?
WIFE IN PAIN
You?re absolutely right to move on. Why be miserable with this creep of a husband when he has already moved on and has abandoned you and your family! That?s the height of treachery!
Flush down the toilet all your hurt and pain. Breathe deeply and constantly when punishing thoughts cross your mind. Nobody can help you erase the pain, except you.
He?s a jerk! Assure yourself how much better off you are without him. Give yourself more worth by affirming that anybody who?s not into you doesn?t deserve you! And never forget that what goes around, comes around.
