After getting cheated on, some people wallow in sadness, while others muster up the courage to move on and continue with their lives. Are you in the same boat? If you're ready to get your life back on track, read our GIRLTalkers' experiences on love, betrayal, and moving on.
I kept myself busy with the things I wanted. I focused on the dreams that I wanted to fulfill without him in it–so it will not be that painful to me. Little by little, day by day, the hurt just faded away. It was also the time when I watched The Secret by Rhonda Byrne a couple of times to help fix my broken heart. –from GIRLTalker luckyfernz
When I found out that he was cheating on me, pinalayas ko siya sa bahay namin. Nagkahiwalay kami for four months but we were very civil then. He came back and I accepted him and believed in his promises, but after a month of staying with us, he suddenly became cold again and one day, out of nowhere, for a very simple misunderstanding, he said na "walang mangyayari sa atin." I simply told him, if that's what you believe, go and never come back again. –from GIRLTalker longing
Since we were living with his family, I said goodbye to them, packed up our things (my kids' and mine), destroyed his collection, confronted the girl without him knowing that it was my plan that day and then stopped talking to him for two weeks. We are working things out. I'm still trying to move on. It’s hard. –from GIRLTalker smoothie
I like to think that behind every disaster is something valuable, that a disaster provides an opportunity to step up. When I learned about my husband's betrayal, in a way that he could not deny (God's hand really), I knew that was the lowest point in my life but I also grew strong because of it. So, I said to myself, this is what true disaster feels like, and I am still alive, and I believe I can go on my own and make a better life for me and my kids. As for my husband, he realized with 100 percent certainty that the most important thing for him is his family, and that he should do everything to, henceforth, keep it safe and intact. –from GIRLTalker aquacharly
After discovering that he cheated on me, I tried my best to work on the marriage. We were newlyweds during that time–barely two months in–so I was still very eager to fix whatever was broken. But then I got tired din, kasi I felt that I was the only one working on the marriage. How did I move on? I was able to move on only after I separated from him. And now we are okay. He is now my ex-husband since we decided to get a divorce. We are civil to each other; at least we don't fight anymore. –from GIRLTalker anne08
