A striking speech given by an HRM student of MSU-IIT, delivered and written per se. Hear and Relate. Pure thoughts of a brokenhearted girl.
INFIDELITY by Reca Shayne Baudi
Why do people want to engage in heartbreaking acts? Do they find it euphoric seeing people who love them suffering and hurting? Is it because of lust over love? Why not settle and be contented on what they have right now? Cheating is one of the most conventional and controversial issues nowadays. It is the only word I want to erase in my dictionary. It is the most painful and excruciating word and will never be a justifiable act for someone with intact sanity and reasoning. Who would ever resort to cheating given that someone has exceptional judgment? There are 99 solutions but cheating ain't one.
Infidelity as defined by Merriam Webster’s Dictionary is a violation of marriage contract by adultery, but this doesn't only apply on married couple. There are many instances why cheaters do this. People cheat because they might be running away from a problem, bored or they don’t love you anymore. Even though they already know that cheating is bad, it is also not an excuse. Cheating is not an accident, it’s a choice.
It can ruin good relationship. For the married individuals, are they aware of the people involved? Children might suffer the consequences. They might feel daunted of the people around them, minding all the bustling activity running around every corner because of the issue between their parents. Children are the ones who will bear all the pain, they are pathetic. What would you feel if you engage in adultery? Would you like your children to become like this in the future? I think not.
The feelings of the one being cheated, are they also aware? Isn't that unfair? When you commit a relationship you should be serious. Do not say fictitious “love statements” to your partner when you have no plan on doing it. You’re making us stupid but I’m afraid
you look more stupid if you believe that we believed in you and your lies. Maybe our cries are their lullaby. I am saddened, frustrated, depressed but not now, not today, not again. I have lots of friends supporting me. Your friends will cheer you up. Even buy you expensive and luscious food for you to cheer up. You may lose one who happened to be your everything but it may cost more suffering if your friends had given up on you. I am very grateful to have friends like you.
For the cheaters, Karma and my beautiful smile is my best revenge. For those who are planning to cheat, just leave, you’re not worthy at all. You will just ruin and break loyal and good hearts. That’s absolutely impossible. And for the ones being cheated, just smile, live life to the fullest and be more beautiful and stronger than before. Learn to wait and let God do the rest.
"Very few people navigate infidelity gracefully. Accept that you're going to wobble and fail sometimes. It's okay. The goal here, upon finding out that you've been cheated on, is to take back your power, maintain your dignity and not do anything homicidal." Tracy Schorn (Journalist, Cartoonist, Blogger)
