Writing a Wrong

28 May

A couple months ago I published a blog post called “Brok3n & Betray3d”. It was about how my girlfriend told me she cheated on me and how that affected my emotional state over the next few days.

It is not there anymore because I took it down.

I believe it was published “wrongly”. Or at least before I knew the whole story.

I am here today to ask for a chance to rectify that event.

*    *     *

After the situation had passed and things were cleared up, we got back together for a short while only to fall apart again. Not because she told me she cheated on me. Just because that is how life goes.

After we talked about the situation, she informed me of the details that I wish I had known prior to my posting what I did, and reacting the way I did. I wish I had handled things more calmly. More maturely.

We were apart for the day. I had my daughter for the weekend and she had gone to our local St. Patrick’s Day parade. During that time, she had gone to the bar where the parade ended. Her ex-boyfriend was there and he kissed her. She didn’t return the advance and ended up pushing him away and told him to stop. Another girl who was there kissed her and she did the same thing.

I believe her.

She said she felt like she cheated on me because she was out without me.

I believe her.

As a result of my actions, she was shunned by those closest to us, both offline and in real life. For this I am dreadfully sorry. I cannot imagine being in her place.

Though we are not together today, I would appreciate it you would remember what she was to me by reading the series of poems I wrote about her PTSD and anxiety, as well as the short story I wrote in her honor, Love and the Maiden.

Thank you friends.

    When you find out information like this, I think you get a temporary pass on behaving “maturely.” The mature part is coming around to reflect – which you did.

    I think that’s big of you to admit your infractions (against her) publicly- not an easy thing to do, and that takes courage, so…you should be commended for that and she should give you credit for that too. On the flip side of that coin, I’ve been in bars before, and have been pukey drunk- lying on the bathroom floor- trying not to hug the porcelain god (as they say). :0) But not before playing pool with some guy friends and also, taking the stage and singing with the band as well as smoking a fatty with them (all) in their “band van”. That whole situation was ripe for something to go wrong, wouldn’t you say? Especially since my boyfriend wasn’t with me at the time. I had a blast and made an ass of myself to be sure, but what I DIDN’T do- was kiss some guy….OR girl. There’s just no excuse for that if you’re with someone in a committed relationship, so yes, she absolutely did cheat on you. You don’t have to have sex with another person to cheat. So, she’s not innocent there.

    But…I respect her for acknowledging that kissing another person is in fact cheating. She too should be commended for her honesty and courage to admit that. That puts both of you in the same boat at this point. One for one! I hope you’re both able to heal and be the best of who you guys are individually, if you’re unable to do that together, collectively. All the best to you both. x
