I’m sorry you had to go through that Jessica. I’ve been there and it’s literal hell.

There’s not really any way to be sure if trying to save the relationship is a good choice. Or if it’s only a good choice under certain circumstances, or something. It involves a ton of risk and unwarranted trust from the taker-backer. I mean, who really knows? Relationships are ducking complicated, even good healthy “normally” functioning ones. Haha.

I don’t blame anyone that breaks up over it, I just want to put out into the ether that if you still want to try to make it work, other people have made it work before. It’s just fucking hard for both parties and there are no guarantees.

Because sometimes no matter how much you want it and how hard you work, you’ll still get hurt.

So, yeah. Breaking up is the absolute quicker and easier path to happiness in my opinion, but that doesn’t mean you have to cut and run.

And I’ll stop now because I feel like I’m some asshole over here saying “not all cheaters.” LOL

Thanks for the article and response Jessica. 🙌
