Today, July 27, 2013, marks the one year anniversary that I found my ex had been sleeping with someone else for six months. In our bed. When our baby was two months old.
I thank him for his infidelity. Today I look at how far I’ve come, and realize that I am happier, healthier, more financially stable, and a better mom than I would have been with him still in my life.
A long road of healing has been traveled since I wrote this post about picking up and trying a dating website.
Happy Anniversary to me, and cheers to who I have become!
Update: For some reason, this particular post gets a lot of traffic. It has since been over two and a half years since I was the victim of infidelity. I have moved on but there are still memories I have when I have to deal with my ex that make me want to scream. Like once when we were in mediation and he said to me “you’re just doing this [taking to court] because you’re mad I don’t want you anymore.” At that moment, I had to force myself to start crying to not laugh- I just wish he knew this little fact. Or the time he said to me “I think you stopped taking birth control and got pregnant on purpose,” which I wanted terribly to respond with “if I was trying to get pregnant on purpose, I would have chosen a (pick your poison) wealthier/better looking/nicer/someone less manipulative/someone who didn’t have a history of cheating and lying.” But I didn’t. I held my tongue and took the higher road and allowed my attorney to take care of everything. Sticks and stones may break you emotionally but karma is a bigger bitch than I could ever be.
And…for something to wear to your next first date:
