Of course no matter how much you try to avoid it, being cheated on can take a toll on your self esteem, and this is why it’s very important to surround yourself with people who truly love and care about you. Those people make you feel good about yourself and who remind you of just how much you deserve out of a relationship. Allow your friends and family to rally around you and accept their offers of support. Being cheated on is much different from dealing with a run of the mill break-up. Not only are you grieving the probably loss of a relationship, you’re letting go of everything you ever thought the relationship was in the first place.
Eventually, you will have to come face to face with the person who has cheated on you. There is no set rule that says you absolutely must end the relationship, but it is a fact that nothing will ever be the same again. If you do decide to give them another chance, be prepared for an uphill journey. Cheating leaves a trail of trust issues and hurt that won’t be repaired overnight. Because of this, many people choose to walk away from the relationship for good. For them, it would be simply impossible to fix what has been so painfully broken.
