cheating on a relationship - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
There is a difference between cheating in a gratuitous manner and finding a new emotional bond for survival. Some of us have dependant personalities and we need emotional bridges in order to escape harm. We need emotional anchors. Without these things we actually start to die. The lonely emotions, especially heightened in toxic relationships, are more harmful than smoking or obesity. As Dr Gabor Mate says, it is the good that die young because we are bled to emotionally support others and then kicked to the curb when we break. Modern society is built upon the backs of the emotionally dependant types such as we, for we are the very fabric and essence of community - a normal and vital part of natural human tribes. Those that appear stable yet are emotionally cold would watch the world burn from ivory towers, figurative and literal, rather than be a hero. So, yes, we hero types, we emotionally dependant types, are flawed, yet this flaw is our greatest blessing, the true floor of society, and we would rather die than lose it. For this is love. This is the loving bond you all apparently seek yet run from when things get real. Well. I'd rather be me and this way than any other. So, when there is "cheating" are they doing it gratuitously or to survive? Because the difference matters very much. We don't punish victims, do we? Wait, that's exactly what happens every fucking time. Of course it does. Society sides with the strong and punishes the weak... just as Jesus asked us to... oh wait... was that all backwards... yeah it was... I cheated to make a point.
Habitual keeping of more than one sexual partner, be it spouse and/or lovers, to my heart and soul, is polygamy and a form of emotional cowardice.
When cheating on a relationship, you are a gambler putting the hearts of others up as your stake.
Cheating on a relationship is gutless. If you can't be faithful and honest, have the decency to admit it and leave.
Cheating on a relationship is a distraction, a self delusional addiction to cheap thrill. It is Bate's motel seedy. Whatever you think is going on, that is what it is. That is what everyone else sees and they are right, not you. It will end in a break up or breakdown... or worse... a paranoid zombie marriage... I've seen it all.
When you cheat on a relationship, you cheat yourself and everyone else. Love needs honesty and truth, otherwise you risk a foolish vortex of pain.
