A Heartbreaking Open Letter To The Person Who Cheated On Me

What would it take for you to give up on a one-sided relationship?

How long could you keep holding on to a relationship knowing that your spouse or partner has already fallen out of love with you? That burning passion that once kept you both yearning for each other’s arms had died—your partner’s at least—and you don’t know how to get it back.

It’s a sad and ugly truth that no person in this world would want to go through, but unfortunately, you are in that miserable situation. And slowly, you feel the love of your life slipping away.

Have you gone complacent? Is there someone else in your beloved’s life? What have you done to deserve the emotional neglect? These questions torture your restless mind. Some are brave enough to ask, and some are just strong enough to let go and walk away. And, yes, there are those who choose to stay, hold on, and keep mum about it. People might call them a martyr, a weakling, or downright stupid. But, can you blame them for loving and hoping that someday, the person they cherish more than their lives will rekindle that love?

A wife wrote this letter to her husband to let him know how she felt over the years of infidelity and the emotional neglect she tolerated when they were together.

It’s a heartbreaking letter filled with despair, sacrifice, hope, and love; emotions that people like her understand, and those like her husband ought to know.

To the person who cheated on me

You’ve been lying to me for the longest time. You’ve been lying to me almost every day. You think I cannot tell? It’s been 18 years since we started dating and you’re a terrible liar. When you lie, I can see it in your face, I can hear it in your voice. I know for the longest time that you’ve been cheating on me, but I let it slip.

Come to think of it, it has been a very long time since you last noticed me. When you wake up, breakfast is ready, you eat and then you leave. When you get home, dinner is well prepared, you eat and do some paperwork and then you sleep. I’ve wanted to ask you what’s wrong and communicate, but you barely notice my existence. I wanted to know where I went wrong or where I came short so I can make arrangements to meet them for you. But you were barely home. Not even on the weekends. Until such time, I found out you’ve been sleeping around with someone for the longest time.

I fell apart upon finding out. I can’t understand; I want to understand. I did what I could to be the best other half anyone could have, right? But I held myself back from confronting you and we went about our regular routine and this has gone on for another year and more.

Until such time, about a year ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. When I told you, you finally cared. You finally noticed my existence. I felt important to you once again. I was happy. I once again, is visible in your map. And I thought to myself, “I think everything is falling into place.” Until such time, I found out that, you were still in contact with that someone and occasionally rendezvoused with them. And once again, it’s back to square one but still, I refused to confront you.

I was already happy at the fact that you were noticing my existence. That you once again, give comments about the food I cook for breakfast before you leave for work, the food I cook for your lunch, and the food I cook when you came home. But I never stopped thinking. Thinking that when you’re away, you’re with that person; that whenever your phone gets SMS notification, it’s them. I cried far too many times, away from your eyes. I didn’t want you to see me when I’m weak.

I cried because I know all I have is your pity. Pity because I was sick. Honestly, I feel like a beggar; a beggar who deserves nothing but spare change; a beggar who deserves only the leftovers given by those who are more fortunate; a worthless trash of society who deserves nothing but to be shunned. I want to run away, but a homeless beggar like me has nowhere to go; no place to come home to.

But don’t worry, honey. I don’t have much time left anyway. Soon you’ll be free to be with them. You won’t have to go around my back anymore. Because by then, I will just be a bitter memory to you; a nightmare you might have always so avoided. To you my love; I’m sorry. I’m sorry if I wasn’t enough. I’m sorry if I was not able to fulfil your needs. I’m sorry if I was too much of a coward to speak up. I love you, believe me, I love you so much and even if you did so much that made me cry, I will still love you.

I hope one day, you’d be able to read this and realize it’s me. I hope one day you find out that this is the voice I have always suppressed in the last few years of our life together. Honey, you know that I love you so much that’s why you’re free. Find that person who will make you happy and make you feel content. But I have one request to ask you: Please do not make that person cry. Do not let them shed even a single tear of sadness and if you did, only tears of joy. Thank you for all the years, sweetheart I love you.

The toughest part of letting go is realizing that the other person already did.

Wife Told Husband She Got Pregnant By Another Man, But She Never Expected Him to Do This

He would not have had a beautiful and strong relationship now if he chose to dwell on the past.

By

How would you feel if your partner tells you that he or she has been unfaithful? What would you do? Regardless if it was in the past or the present, it truly hurts to know that the person you love betrayed your trust. For those who have had such a heartbreaking experience, you know that it’s not easy to forgive and that it takes a special kind of love and a deeper bond to be able to accept your partner again with open arms.

Infidelity is often rooted in one’s selfishness and the other person's neglect. Of course, there are those who are unfaithful despite having an ideal relationship with their spouses. And, although it is more common for males to get involved in extra-marital affairs, there are women who fall into temptation.

This husband's story is about his wife who made the mistake of giving into a one-night stand and consequently getting herself pregnant. This may not have been the most unsurprising consequence of what happened that night, but she certainly did not expect her husband to do what he did....
