Why does it hurt so much ..?

He cheated on me, so why am I the one who feels like shit?! I'm leaving his cheating ass in two weeks after I get my little one and I packed up and I feel so lost .. I don't want to feel like! I want to be strong and hold my head high and I can't .. I'm the one that feels sad and broken over it, while my now Ex just blows me off. Shouldn't he be the one that's torn over loosing his family and I be the one who won't look back?

When will it stop hurting..? When will I stop loving him..?
This sucks and hurts so much =(

  • I'm so sorry! What an a$$!!!

    Betrayal hurts and takes a long time to heal. He may not feel it right away, but guilt hurts a hell of a lot too. It may take time, but he'll get his. When you and your baby are gone and he is alone, he'll get to thinking.

    Again I'm so sorry... I with I could bust his knee caps for you.

It will take time, dont try to rush this..

  • Betrayal hurts because you think it has anything to do with you. It's a commentary on your attractivceness or your value. Of course, it isn't -- anymore than the weather is, but we like to sell ourselves on these fairy tales because we keep hoping that people will stop being people and start being magically capable of fulfilling us and refuting the nasty things we think about ourselves in our own minds.

    Why ever would you want to stop loving anyone? How would that make you feel better about yourself?

    If you love him, truly madly deeply, then you want him to be genuinely happy, yes? Like, not 'except if it makes me feel less than I want to feel' but actually, genuinely happy for him being happy. That's love.

    Controlling people (and their behaviour and their emotions) is not love, it's insanity.

    Btw: there is no 'should' in who feels bad. It's always a choice.

  • of course its gonna hurt hes ur babys dad and u loved him.. but try ur hardest to stay strong for ur kid.. think about how much worse ur life would have been if u were still with him and not knowing. but dnt worry it will hit him and he will realize that his kid is growing up healthy and strong because his momma made him that way.. just have faith okay and keep ur eyes and mind open to bigger better things.

  • took me 2 full years to get over the hurt and broken heart of being cheated on (to the point where I could talk/think about it without BAWLING)...sorry if that isn't what you wanted to hear, or if that seems like SUCH a long time...but everyday, things get just a tad easier. the first few months seem like you'll NEVER get over it...but I promise you, you will! if you don't feel like being strong right now, that's okay! it's okay to be sad, and it's okay to be heartbroken, you're hurt! just make yourself (AND YOUR DAUGHTER!) the promise that you WILL make the effort to get past the CAN be done! I promise!

  • why not just forgive him and stop hurting?

  • I'm sorry that it hurts but it's going to for a while. The way I thought about it, is that God had something better planned for me and he did. I have a wonderful husband and a gorgeous daughter. Something better is out there for you. Cry and cry because you need too. But after, think about what might be in store for you. HUgs!

  • Since you two have a child together you will always, in some degree care for him. I had this problem with my first and I was destroyed. I thought we were going to be a family forever and he didn't seem to care. Then one day I decided to move on. I bought a new outfit that complimented my body, got my hair and nails done, and went out with some friends. My best friend had my dd for the night and I got have some fun. I flirted with every guy I could. I did this for several weeks, not the going out but the flirting. Finally I found a really great guy. My dd was more than a year old before I was able to settle down with a guy and resume relations, but I got over it. And now 5 years later I am more happy than ever and there is no one that can take that away. Good news is, he WILL have to pay for the baby. Good luck, drown your sorrows for awhile and then when you are ready, move on.
